You can use a 40:1 mix if it smokes then cut it back to 32:1 but a little more oil is better than not enough so start with the 40:1

I have got 26cc homelite hedge trimmer what type of 2 stroke oil do i need for it, MANY THANKS


You can use any brand of two stroke oil as long as it says on the container that it is suitable for air cooled engines and you need to mix it at a ratio of 25 to 1. Regards Phil

Wat is mix ratio for homelit ht-17 hedge trimmer????


If ever in doubt, always run them on a 25-1 fuel oil mix, this is good for any small two stroke engine, always use a good two stroke oil designed for use in chainsaws, not out board oil.

Homelite gas trimmer ut20602 from 1998 need oil mix ratio...is it 40:1 or 50:1


Use the 50:1 ratio oil mix.the oil bottle will tell you how much oil that you will need to mix with how much gas you have,40:1 will make the trimmer smoke too much and it will foul plugs prematurely but won't hurt the machine.

What is the proper oil to gas ratio for a Homelite 16 inch 150 Automatic that is approximately 40 years old?


Most of the old Homelites were 32:1. I eliminated the mix problem for all my equipment when I started using a synthetic 2-cycle oil called OPTI-2. Somehow it works for all 2-cycle saws/trimmers/blowers etc. I've got equipment that's 20+ years old and still running strong with the OPTI-2.
