SOURCE: someone ran gas instead of 2-cycle in leaf-blower; now locked up

It's probably dead. If the rope won't pull buy another and keep it for parts, the repair bill will be more than it costs. Spray some wd- 40 in the spark plug hole and let it sit for a couple days, IF it frees up you got lucky but don't expect it.

Are you sure the brand is LeafEater?

I would suggest using a good brand of synthetic 2 cycle oil at a ratio of 40:1 and you would be fine.

If you happen to have one of the green units by WeedEater, check their website for a manual. You will need to know the model, tho.

If you go about 32:1 you will be OK. It may be a 40:1 unit, but better safe than sorry if you are not certain.

I don't know what fuel my leaf blower needs.


Almost every leaf blower uses gasoline mixed with 2-cycle mixing oil. Unless you have a larger, commercial model with a separate oil tank, you'll need to purchase mixing oil and mix it with your fuel. You can find mixing oil at PartsBuggy.com.

Have a Homelite 320km/h leaf blower what do I fill it with


Hi lenore thorpe

You will fill your blower with low test/ grade of gasoline..no need for the high test.
You also said that it is 4 cycle, so DO NOT MIX OIL WITH THE GASOLINE...
Please rate me

It depends, Toro made 2 cycle and 4 cycle Mowers......Look and see if there is a oil dipstick,If so it is a 4cycle , If no dipstick or plug at crankcase to check oil then it's a 2 cycle

I have a PB 201 leaf blower...I can't find my manual. Do I need to add oil to the gas before use? Thanks!


YES YES YES !!!

You must make a 50 to 1 ratio of gasoline to 2 cycle oil. I recommend to purchase 2 cycle oil that has a fuel stabilizer in it. This will keep your fuel fresh for several months instead of just weeks.

50 to 1 is 2.6 ounces of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gasoline (US)

Keep your mixed fuel in a well marked gasoline container and use it only for your 2 cycle equipment.

Good luck!

I can't find an oil reservoir on this model ? Shouldn't every engine need oil ? I can't find the dipstick, Stuck, Harry


Welcome to the wonderful world of 2 cycle engines. Your McCullough blower uses a fuel mix to lubricate the piston. You MUST mix 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle mix to every gallon (U.S.) of gasoline.

If you run straight gasoline through your blower, you will RUIN the engine in seconds!

The fuel mix ratio is crucial to the lifespan of the engine. DO NOT GUESS.......MEASURE !!

I would also encourage you to purchase a 2 cycle mix that contains a fuel stabilizer. Gasoline starts to degrade in as little as 60 days, and a stabilizer will allow your fuel to stay fresh longer.

Good luck.

Wht is the gas to oil ratio for a homelite vac


Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

1 quart fuel:3/4 ounces of oil = 1 Gallon fuel:3 ounces of oil or slightly less than 43:1. Not what a current manual recommends.

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardless of what the manual reads. HTH

I nww=eed to know the fuel mixture for my homelite gas blower


If you ran plain gas in a 2-cycle engine and it seized... you need to buy a new one. 2-cycle engines depend on oil in the gas for lubrication. If you run straight gas, there is no lubrication, the engines overheats and seizes. The end, unfortunately.
