Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

1 quart fuel:3/4 ounces of oil = 1 Gallon fuel:3 ounces of oil or slightly less than 43:1. Not what a current manual recommends.

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardless of what the manual reads. HTH

I do not know the oil-to-gas ratio to mix/buy. My husband passed away, and I cannot find the manual. Help, please. THANK YOU


Can you find the model number on the Homelite Mighty Lite BlowerVac?

For the UT08520 and UT08921 26cc blowers and the UT08550 and UT08951 blower vacs, you can mix the Homelite Premium Exact Lubricant with gasoline following the label directions. For other synthetic oil additives, use 2.6 oz of additive per 1 gallon of gasoline. (It's 20ml to 1 l if you use the metric system.) That's a 50:1 ratio (gasoline to additive).

Many Homelite Blower manuals are available here: http://manuals.homelite.com/documents?page=5 . You should try to find your exact model and then check the manual to confirm that your model blower vac uses this same ratio of oil to gasoline. You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

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.

What is the fuel to oil nixture for my attact II (200mph.)leaf blower


Your manual states it is 50:1 which is 2.6 ounces of oil/gallon of gas...or 1.3 ounces in 1/2 gallon of gas. This is a common ratio for Homelite 2 stroke engines. I recommend synthetic oil.
Specs are on page 8 of your manual.

I need to know the correct ratio of fuel mix for homelite blower/vac


It is 50:1. That is 2.6 Ounces 2 stroke oil/ US Gallon or 1.3 ounces of oil / 1/2 US Gallon. I recommend synthetic and adding Stabil brand gas stabilizer to the mix. It helps greatly.

Does my vac attack 2 need crank case oil?


It will have a 2 stroke engine, so the oil will be mixed with the petrol, so no you won't need any crank case oil.

Does this blower use 2 cycle mix; I have a homelite vac attack II 200mph blower and it is having trouble starting


Yes it will use a fuel mixture of 40:1(3.2 oz of two cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas). Any fuel sitting over 30 days now is considered bad fuel. All the manufacturers schools this year and told us this. We are finding it to be true.
Good day.

What is the oil-gas mix for a homelite superxl chainsaw? For 1 gal.


16:1 ratio for most 2-stroke oil brands. A service manual recommends tro check the ratio marked on the bottle if using Homelite brand 2-stroke oil. For other oils, 16 parts of gas to 1 part of oil.

For 1 gal of fuel, that is 270cc of oil required to meet the 16:1 ratio.
