Drain tank completely, pump primer to drain that back into the tank, empty tank again. Refuel with correct fuel oil mix 50:1. Hopefully if it wasn't run too much, it might not have dameged the cylinder and piston. keep your fingers crossed

SOURCE: Gas/oil mix ratio for Ryobi Trimmer

SOURCE: Just plain gas or a mix in my Homelite 25cc zip start gas trimmer

you will have to mix oil and gas in a one gallon container
your ratio will be 40:1 that is 3.2oz of oil to one gallon of gas
you will need two cycle oil as some are pre bottled at this amount and some you have to measure as some dispensers have markings for you.
Do NOT USE MOTOR OIL OR OUTBOARD MOTOR OIL.
I would use 89 octane mid grade especially if fuel will be sitting.
Look for the 2 cycle oil that contains a fuel stabilizer in it if possible if not thats fine.

Dont want to throw you off but some will say you can use a 50:1 mix---2.6 oz to 1gallon
if you can find the SYNTHETIC type 2 cycle oil this would be your alternative and would be ok to use also.

I have a B&S weed trimmer Model 21032. I wish to put in some gas stabilizer but I don't know the fuel tank capacity. Any idea?


The easiest way is to mix it in your gas can as you buy gas at the service station.
If it's a 2cycle, most of the oil mix I buy says on it that stabilizer is included in the oil mix. Fuel stabilizer does not take the place of your 2cycle oil mix. I haven't ever had problems with my 2cycle gas going bad even when left for awhile.
If it's a 4cycle you can mix the stabilizer in when you buy gas.
For now, guess at the fuel tank size ( a quart ? ) and work out the ratio to add to the trimmer tank. A teaspoon maybe. A little too much won't kill anything.

Just brought new mech choice 25cc petrol line trimmer put petrol with oilmix in ,follwed instructions cant get it to start why,did we miss something out in getting it to start


How did you mix the fuel? Best to make it up in a jerry can. Mix the fuel and oil in the can. It may well be flooded. Try starting with ignition on, choke open and full throttle, might take up to ten pulls.

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

If this is really helpful, please rate.

Engine suddenly quit and will not restart or fire.


Hello. Begin by changing your air filter. If the air filter is dirty or has too much oil in it the trimmer will not start. Next, change the spark plug. Then check the fuel filter inside of the tank to be sure it is not clogged.

Finally, I do have a customer now and then who accidentally puts in the wrong fuel [for instance straight gas instead of the gas and oil mix required]. If this is a possibility, drain the tank and start over with a fresh gallon of gas and a fresh 2 cycle oil mix. Joe

My hedge trimmer will not start... Put in new gas


It's not getting gas, due to being gummed up with old gas. Remove all of the old gas and mix up a batch of fresh gas&oil. Also get some carb cleaner. Put just a little of the gas&oil mix plus an equal part carb cleaner. Try to start it just to work the new mixture through the carb. You might use the spray start to help pull the new gas through. If it fires up on the new gas&oil&carbcleaner mix, shut it off and let it sit for an hour or two. Drain it out and try just a little gas&oiil without the carb cleaner. If all is well fill the tank. If not, repeat the whole process. If you can't clear the gum this way you may have to remove the carb to clean it. Good luck.

Troy built 27cc string trimmer Model TB21 EC. What is the gas oil mix ratio?


4 cycle engines do not run on mixed fuel. Run on straight fuel. They have a spot to put oil in just like a lawn mover, and should be changed regularly. @ stroke engines run on mixed fuel.

If you have mixed your gas and oil to a 4 to one mix you have way too much oil in your gasoline. Drain out your fuel tank and carburetor. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remove the spark plug and clean if necessary. Mix your fuel in a fuel container at 40 to one. Some sites even recommend a 50 to one mixture. (50 to one mixture is one pint of oil to 6 gallons of gasoline) Refill your fuel tank on the trimmer and try to crank, if it does not want to crank within 4-5 pulls then you may want to give it a very small shot of starting ether in the carburetor intake and try to crank again. Good Luck, I hope this helped, Please rate me, Thanks

Echo gt 2000 wont start


Mix the fuel/oil ratio an ounce of two cycle oil to a quart of gasoline or 4oz of two cycle oil per gallon of gasoline. I don't think that the fuel mix is the problem though. Check the screen at the exhaust port and clean out any carbon build-up found there. I would clean or replace the in-tank fuel filter as well. Anyway, hope this helped and best wishes.
