Between 32:1 and 50:1 should be OK.

The best bet is to buy the premeasured 2 cycle fuel/oil mix in the bottles. They come with 8oz for a gallon of fuel.

What is the gas to oil ratio for weed eaters?


Most gas weed eaters use 2-cycle engines. For the Homelite 2-cycle engine trimmers, use a 50:1 ratio of gasoline to the Homelite lubricant. (For 1 gallon of gas, add 2.6 oz of the oil.)

Many Homelite tool manuals are available here: http://www.homelite.com/service_support/product_owners_manuals . Scroll down to find your string trimmer.

I hope this helps.

Homelite 25cc 2cycle trimmer.built in March of 1999. what is the proper oil to gas ratio?


If you use a synthetic 2-stroke oil, you can easily get by running a 40:1 ratio mix...that is 3.2oz oil/gallon of gas. A richer oil mix won't hurt either (say 20:1 (2X the oil of 40:1). I recommend synthetic always be used alongwith Stabil fuel treatment because after about 30 days, gas loses its volatility and begins to breakdown without it...causing fuel problems.

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.

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.

Homelite zip start 2cycle trimmer.


I had this same problem, would run a couple of seconds, stop, and you couldn't start it again.
Had good gas/oil mix 50:1 and 25cc Homelite. Had replaced the fuel filter, gas, spark plug, and took carb apart and cleaned with carb cleaner and primer bulb worked fine. None of that fixed it. What did? Take the muffler off and see if it will start and run with the muffler off. If it does, chances are the muffler is clogged. Also check the exhaust ports and clean them out if plugged with black oil carbon residue.
My muffler was clogged up, took it off, cleaned out the exhaust ports, there was some oil that was in the muffler(oil that didn't burn during combustion). It now starts and runs like a champ on first or second pull.
