SOURCE: What is gas-oil ratio for homelite leaf blower

Unless you know better, I would use 40:1. That will give you more oil than needed if it is 50:1 but wont hurt the engine. Do some more checking to get the actual ratio...Lee

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.

The mixture should be at a 50:1 ratio, using Premium Exact Mix™ 2-cycle engine oil. If Premium Exact Mix™ 2-cycle engine oil is not available, use a high quality 2-cycle engine oil, mixed at a 50:1 ratio.

You can get the manual on the link below if you need it also.

could be fuel lines, fuel filter, or your carburetor needs to be rebuilt. The carb has thin rubber diaphragms that get hard over time, hot weather, or stale gas. Need more assistance,

My redmax eb7001 emits white smoke while running, the more power...the more smoke


Your fuel-oil mixture has too much oil in it. The standard ratio is 40:1 which means one of the little bottles of 2-stroke oil (about 2.6 fluid ounces) is added to 1 gallon of gas. Homelite recommends a 50:1 ratio but 40:1 is better, at least in my opinion.

The last time you made the mix, did you pour the oil into the gas or did you pour the oil into a little bit of gas in the gas can, shake well and then fill it with a gallon of gas? The former can give you lots of smoke as well because it is not mixed thoroughly. The latter is the best way to mix because the agitation and the flow of gas mixes the oil better.

Other possible causes to this problem are: how old is the mix you are using? Did this mix sit all winter last and you sre using it now? If so, did you add some Stabil to the mix before storing?

Depending on your answers to the above questions, you can determine why you are getting so much white smoke.

My recommendation to you is to:
(a) Empty the blower gas tank.
(b) Mix a fresh batch of oil and gas in an approved fuel container.
(c) Pull the spark plug and inspect it, if it is black/sooty replace it.
(d) Pour the new mix into the tank and start the blower.

This should get rid of the excess smoke, if it doesn't, let me know here. Good Luck!

Need a Manual for HomeLite Leaf Blower Vacuum Model Ut08934B, specifically for fuel mixture ratio.


Most 2 stroke engines.......99% now use 50 to 1 mix in the fuel.
Others are close to this ratio.

Older....over 20 to 30 years old ........that may have had 20 to 1 ....or other ratios run happily on a 50 to 1 ratio using the newer 2 stroke oils.
And......BONUS.......they have increased engine life because of reduced semi burnt oil build up caused by "too much oil".......particularly around the rings on the piston(s) etc.
