Welcome to the forum  :)

Just to highlight that this thread is over 13 years old, and many of the previous contributors are no longer members or no longer post regularly, so whilst it's possible that newer members may have a manual, don't necessarily get your hopes up too much  :)
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

is it the 4 stroke model or the 2 stroke ? if it is 4 stroke you need lead replacment fuel. 2 stroke is lead replacment fuel  with 2 stroke oil mixed in

It is a Briggs and Stratton engine - an American engine. They normally only do petrol engines at that size, and it is most likely a 4-stroke, so its unleaded fuel straight from the pumps at the garage.

Briggs and Stratton did make a 2-stroke model once, but it never proved successful, so they stopped making it.

I guess it's all down to what age the machine is, and that will depend on whether it needs lead replacement fuel or not. I would hazard a guess that it won't need lead replacement petrol, because I borrowed an old Briggs and Stratton rotovator once - and it was very old, and that was 4-stroke with petrol straight from the pump - I did check with a local garden machinery dealer first, which is what I suggest you do before firing it up.
I may be Welsh, but I love ewe anyway!
