SOURCE: Correct gas to oil ratio for Homelite Mighty String Trimmer Model

most trimmers are 50:1. or 40:1. i would use synthetic 2 cycle oil and use the 50:1 ratio. i know guys with trimmers that require 50:1, and they use synthetic at 80:1 with no problems for years. they say the engine runs cleaner. i am a part-time lawn care operator.

Oil to fuel ratio


Many of the 2 cycle motors use a 40:1 gas to oil mix. There should be a label on the motor that tells what the mixture should be. You also can buy a premixed container that has the gas ad oil mix all in one can. Just pour it in the gas tank, then pull the starter cord.

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.

Toro proline model 53030 how do you install line and what size line? also what gas do i use ? thnks


they are usually .60 or .80. mm line size. You use any gasoline that is FRESH ONLY! I can not over stress how many problems that saves you over time. But for that model (and many like it) you must understand its a 2 cycle engine (or 2 stroke) now this is VERY IMPORTANT. Gasoline alone in any 2 stroke engine will destroy it if used alone, without mixing special "2 cycle or 2 stroke" oil with it. Look at the gas cap, or a sticker or a label on the trimmer and you will see a 2 cycle oil to gasoline ratio indication number. That means what it implies, and yes, you mix the two together. Common mix ratios are typically 30:1 (30 parts gas to 1 part oil) Some vary up to 50:1 some as low as 25:1. If its not on the trimmer try the owners manual ITS THERE! generally that means a 2.5 ounce bottle of 2 cycle oil (Not Car Motor oil! There is a big difference in performance for 2 cycle motors. You need to mix 2 cycle oil types only) poured into a 1 gallon container of gas. Shake it up, fill your trimmer with that. Here look at this link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuGfDNH6fXk&feature=related (Copy and paste it into your browser'd address bar, then hit enter.) They will show you all you need to know on how to restring the line.

What is the correct ratio gas to oil for my stihl fs 66 trimmer


Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the oil manufacturer's recommended ratio. Today it is usually 50:1.
Fuel in the USA contains ethanol; try to use up your mix in a month or less. HTH
