All 2 stroke motors use more or less the same oil/Fuel mix, BUT You MUST know the exact amount for your particular engine. I believe for your motor it is 40:1.
The commonest Ratios are about 5% (20:1) - 6% (17:1) and newer motors are usually 2% (50:1). I have also included 3% (32:1) because many tuned motors use this ratio.

SOURCE: Hi I have an Echo GTX 2000 weed eater and I need

Daniel;
That mix is 32:1. It makes for harder starting, carbons up pistons, cylinders, and mufflers.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil is 50:1.
You are correct, 50:1 is what Echo recommends.

What kind of oil do i use to mix with gas for my Poulan gas trimmer. Can i use WD30 motor oil or does it have to specifically say its for 2stroke engines? the ratio on the trimmer says 40:1 so i assume...


DO NOT USE MOTOR OIL!!!

There is a special 2-stroke engine oil mix that you can purchase at various stores that have outdoor equipment or you can also find mix at Walmart. There are instructions for proper mixing on the bottle.

Remember not to put 2-stroke mixed fuel in your lawn mower unless it is also 2-stroke (rare). And the converse is also true, do not put your 4-stroke lawn mower fuel in your 2-stroke weed eater.

Do you add the oil first or the gas first?


If you're talking about mixing two-cycle oil with gas for a two stroke motor, always mix it in a gas can then pour it in the weed eater. It's easier to put the oil in the gas can first then fill it with gas to get the two mixed well.

What ratio of oil and gas do I mix together? How do you start it? I bought the weed eater used.


If you bought it used, you can bet that they didn't run it out of fuel before they stored it, so the gas evapoated out of the carb and all that was left was oil, so mix your fuel 8 to one eight parts gas and one part oil, you'll have to hit the primer botton several times.

My weedeater brand trimmer won't start


I believe you have the wrong GAS AND OIL MIXTURE. MOST WEED EATERS are a Ration of 90:1 or even less 75:1 For WEEDEATER I would use a 50:1 or if you choose 32:1 should work. Use a good 2-stroke oil. DO NOT USE ANY OTHER OIL> You see the more oil you use the harder it is to start. Don't forget to Pump the fuel Bulb on the side before trying to start it.About 3 x should do it. GOOD LUCK and it is and does effect me when their is death by a LOVED ONE. My prayers are with you! From Mddoc13 ( BOB)

Need to know how much oil to mix with gas for a 4 cycle ryobi weed eater


You only need to mix oil with gas when it is a 2 cycle engine. 4 cycle engines run on straight gas. Since you didn't post your model number, here is a site you can hopefully find your owners manual at. Hope this helps.

Do you use mixed gas for a ryobi weed eater??


Unless it has a tag or decal on it saying it is a 4 cycle then it uses mixed gas/oil at about a 50:1 ratio. Straight gasoline will freeze the piston in the cylinder in mere minutes.
