Fuel mixture Z830sd Homelite trimmer


Since my research shows this to be an older unit, I recommend a 40:1 mix. That is 3.2 ounces of 2 stroke oil / gallon of gas, or 1.6 ounces of oil in half-a-gallon of gas. Here is a mixture chart.

What is the correct fuel oil mix for a homelite whipper snipper


I believe Homelite calls for 40:1 (2.6oz. oil to 1gal gas) mixture, but if you are using a good current brand name two cycle oil, 50:1 (3.2 oz. oil to 1 gal gas) would be safe also.

GAS OIL MIXTURE


3 oz. 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon fresh fuel and
to keep your fuel fresh add some fuel stabilizer found at walmart for ethanol blended fuel ( it will say marine formula on bottle) and add it to the gas can you fill your trimmer with ,follow directions on bottle for treatment vs. capacity.

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.
