Question about Homelite Garden
Dear tech support person,
I figured out how to put in new string and how to start it up. I did one area of the yard.
I'm trying to surprise my husband with the trimming done and it ran out of fuel. Do I just put gas in it or use some sort of mixture of oil and gas?
I can't find it in your list below. But it is a 25cc gas Homelite Trim n Edge Zip Start. The number I found on the machine was UT20779.
I'd appreciate good help. I don't want to mess the machine up putting the wrong stuff in, but, I want to get this done.
Thx so much! JT
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.
