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.

What is the gas and oil spec for Homelite Edge/Treamer and were can I find the online manual - UT20930


50:1 mixture. Trimlite, Trim 'n Edge, and EasyReach models.
Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Unleaded gasoline. Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix oil with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix oil is not available, use a high quality 2-cycle engine oil, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US). Do not use automotive oil or 2-cycle outboard oil.
Homelite manuals are quite hard to find. I'm sorry that I can't help you with that.

It wont start


First, make sure that the gas mixture is correct (gas and oil mixed in the right proportion). Next, press the primer bulb 3-4 times, turn the choke lever on to Full Choke, and pull the starter cord until the engine seems like to wants to start, but dies. Next, switch the choke lever to Half Choke and start the gas trimmer, giving it gas by pulling on the trigger. Once it has warmed up fully, you may be able to reduce the Half Choke to No Choke, although my 20+ years of experience with dozens and dozens of models tells me that many trimmers run better, although smoking slightly, when you keep them at Half Choke. One last tip, when pulling the cord, try pushing the trimmer away from you with the opposite hand at the exact same time that you are pulling the starter cord--the equal and opposite push-pull technique may sound like something from karate (and it is, in a way), but it is really helpful when trying to start trimmers. Best of luck, Bill

PS: Check you owner's manual (at home or online) for the proper gas/oil mixture. Empty any old gas out and replace the spark plug, if required.

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.
