I have a power washer with a Kihler Courage XT-7, 173cc

Customer Question
I have a power...

I have a power washer with a Kihler Courage XT-7, 173cc engine. Does this take gas only? Or is it a gas oil mix? I lost my owners manual thanks ***** *****

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?

It's probably 5 years old, and I have'nt used it in 1 year

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No; just whether it takes gas? Or gas/oil mix
