SOURCE: My Homelite backpack leaf blower runs until tank is 1/2 full

I believe you to be correct in your diagnosis.
1) remove the fuel tank
*this will give you an idea of how lines are routed and fitted into tank
2) install a new hose through to tank fitting and make sure to retrieve the old hose & filter inside the tank, so that you can attach the filter to the new hose. The filter is weighted so that it falls to the lowest point to pick up fuel.

SOURCE: i need to no what oil/fuel mixture the homelite

It should have the mixture on a lable near the fuel filler cap; something like 40:1, or 50:1.Home Depot sells small bottles of 2-cycle oil for homelite engines. Mix one to a 1-gal of gasoline.

SOURCE: I have a Homelite BackPacker leaf blower. It runs

Great job with the description of the symptoms. What you are describing is a classic case of vapor-lock. In other words, a vacuum is forming in the fuel tank and not allowing the fuel to flow to the carburetor.

Look at the cap, it probably has a small vent built into it. With a little compressed air, blowing from the outside in, try to clear the obstruction. This may not work, but don't worry. Just replace the fuel cap. Your local lawnmower repair shop can probably get a new cap for you. Otherwise, go to www.homelite.com click on the parts tab, enter your model number (starts with a "UT") and order a new one.

Good luck!

What is the gas to oil ratio for a Homelite backpack blower model # UT08111A


50:1
consider using stihl 50:1 oil as it is made to run in any 2 stroke engine at any ratio that way you only need one fuel tank correctly mixed for all 2 stroke operations

Previous homeowner left a homelite b250 0 801 backpack BLOWER. What type of fuel does it use note no owners manual on homelite site


It uses Hi test gasoline. NOT regular. You'll be having hard start problems if you use regular grade fuel. The engine is a 2 stroke which means you MUST mix oil into the gasoline before you put it in the blower gas tank. The proper 2 cycle oil can be had at any home improvement store or garden departments in places like Walmart. Do not use automotive oil or you will have a huge amount of smoke when you run the blower. You can get an owners manual by going on Homelite's website too.

Why does my Poulan Pro PPBP30/30cc backpack blower have no power?


It may be fuel starved from either blockage in the carb or a broken intake fuel line. You can dump the fuel and mix up a back of fresh fuel with some system cleaner added and run it through and see if the unit picks up a bit. If a system cleaning doesnt improve performance with the gas tank empty look inside the tank and see if the fuel line is broken off or split. Many times fuel lines just get broken from alcohol fuels and age.

Put a new carb on my stihl 400 backpack also a new fuel filter and air filter starts great and runs at full speed and then the rpms drop can bring back to full speed but will drop again no fun blowing


Lucy, the problem is that you have a blocked tank vent/ gas cap. Try just loosening the gas cap,just a crack not even one turn. You are bypassing the tank vent. Now start it and see if it runs longer with out boggind down.If this fixes it, you will need a new gas cap.

Let me know
