My echo uses 50-1 ration. Home Depot sells the small containers for Echo Leaf Blowers that you mix with one gallon of gas.

What is the fuel/oil mixture for my echo pb 250 blower


Sometimes, the fuel ratio is stamped on the fuel cap. Your ratio is 50:1. Echo specifies using 89 (mid-grade ) octane Here is a chart that tells you how much oil you need in a gallon of gas...Just 1/2 it for a half-gallon mix. A copy of your manual is also here.

What kind of gasoline?


  1. Check your manual for the proper gas-and-oil mixture. For almost all modern two-stroke engines, a 50-to-1 mixture is recommended. That requires about 2 1/2 oz. oil for every gallon of gasoline.


  2. Use only two-cycle oil for your mixture. This oil is made especially for these engines and can be purchased at gas stations, hardware stores or any other place where you buy regular motor oil.


  3. Pour the proper amounts of gas and oil into a fuel can. Shake the can well to mix it.


  4. Label your gas can with the mixture ratio. You can use the same mixture for other two-stroke engines.


  5. Shake your fuel can thoroughly every time you refuel. After a while, the oil will settle out of the gas, and shaking it up ensures that the oil and gas are properly mixed again before you put the fuel into your chainsaw.

What fuel does my Echo pb500H use??? 2 stroke oil gas mixture????


2 stroke means that it is a gas mixture. 4 stroke means that there is no gas oil mixture.

Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing or handling, or serious personal injury may result.

A 50:1 ratio with 89 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD certified. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FC/FD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines.

A 50:1 Ratio = 1 US Gal. 89 Octane + 2.6 fl. oz. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL

Echo Power Blend Universal 2-Stroke Oil can be used in all of our 2-cycle air-cooled equipment ever made. You may also use this oil in any other brand of 2-cycle air cooled equipment, but it should always be mixed at the 50:1 ratio whether or not it was a 32:1 or 16:1 etc. machine. This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more.

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!

Gas oil ratio mix echo pb251c handheld blower


40:1 is the standard. You can achieve this by mixing a 3.2 ounce bottle of two-cycle oil with a gallon of gasoline. The best way to do that is to buy a one gallon gas can, add a little bit of gas then pour the entire 3.2 ounce bottle of oil into the tank, swish that around for about 5 seconds then fill the can the rest of the way.
