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

What is the gas and oil spec for Homelite Edge/Treamer and were can I find the online manual - UT20930


50:1 mixture. Trimlite, Trim 'n Edge, and EasyReach models.
Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Unleaded gasoline. Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix oil with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix oil is not available, use a high quality 2-cycle engine oil, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US). Do not use automotive oil or 2-cycle outboard oil.
Homelite manuals are quite hard to find. I'm sorry that I can't help you with that.

What fuel does the csp 3314 use? I bought this chainsaw second hand and i am unsure what fuel to put in it. Thanks in advance for any assistance Kelly


You need to mix 3.2 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas. Some may disagree but a 40:1 ratio is better than a 50:1 mix. It gives more oil in the mix to keep the cylinder/piston lubricated. Any less and you will burn up the engine. With this new mixture you may need to get a professional to readjust the carburetor to this new mix.
