If it's a Tecumseh, your fuel mix would be 24:1. There were a lot of augers made in the 70's that were marketed under different names. If you can post a picture, it would probably help. I had an 3hp "Ice King" auger that was basically a Jiffy painted another color. Depending on the blade and rotation you may be able to use a Jiffy or Strikemaster blade. If I saw a pic I could tell you for sure.

If you're not sure of the oil mix you can go with the Opti 2 oil. It covers the entire range and it runs cleaner. JMO

Lonewolf has the right idea, Opti2 at their recommended rate will look after your auger, no matter what kind!!!!

I think it is a strike master Magnum 111  and as far as  the oil to gas mix  if you were to use amsoil 100:1 you would have the best protection you could get and it runs clean so you won't be in a cloud of smoke when you drill holes .send me an email at salandal@baldcom.net and I can set you up with some. I have the same auger and have ran it 18yrs.
grab the gaff

Iceshantyman--your auger looks the same as mine but,mine is marked OPE Magnum IIIplus @ 49cc.It is a tecumseh engine and mine is marked 24:1 oil mix but as the guys have said there are some better oils nowadays. These augers must have been made yrs ago. I bought this one 2nd hand yrs ago and it's been a gem -starts 2nd pull,everytime. I put a new plug in every year and always use gas stabilizer. I had a 3in earth auger built and use it for putting in posts. I have the idea that the ice auger was replaced on mine at some time because it's a blue color and seems newer than the rest-I just buy eskimo blades and they seem to work.Good luck with yours...hope it works as good as mine has.

I have the same auger .. It was my grandfathers .. I acquired it after he passed away .. last weekend my dad gave the original book for it (pretty cool ) he bought it in 1982 and it still starts the first or second pull everytime .. I have found all the replacement parts for it on the strikemaster website .. it was originally called  Ice Master .. fuel mixture for regular gas and oil is 24:1 .. hope this helps
