Most likely not the answer you are looking for but here is a shot:

Pick up a bottle of the Echo brand 2-cycle oil. It will say "Extended Life" on the labeling. This is meant to run in Echo products, but it is a very FINE and well engineered oil. Mix it according to label directions for 50:1 ratios. (2.6 Oz. to 1 Gal. Gasoline)

When mixed at this ratio it provides MORE than adequate engine protection for ALL 2-Cycle engines, including those that run in 40, and 30:1 ratios.

I mix one 2-cycle tank to label instructions on the Echo oil for 50:1. It handily runs in my Echo chainsaws, non-echo trimmer, Poulan Pro leaf blower, etc. They all run different ratios, but THRIVE on the Echo mix without as much oily residue and smoke to boot!

CAUTION: I do not know of ANY OTHER MAKE of 2-cycle oil that CAN DO THIS *SAFELY*.

Remember:

Always mix your 2-cycle fuel starting with *fresh* gas.

Mix only that which you can use in 30 days.

Use 89 Octane fuel to make your mix in small piston 2-cycle engines.

Clean and re-oil intake filters @ every 10 hrs. operation time. Check and re-gap your plug when you service your filter!

DRAIN unused fuel from tank back into gas mix container. Restart and let engine idle to run any remaining fuel out of engine and carb. Storing fuel in ANY 2-cycle longer than two weeks is going to gum them up and nothing short of a carb rebuild will get them sputtering back to life again!

Fuel mixture Z830sd Homelite trimmer


Since my research shows this to be an older unit, I recommend a 40:1 mix. That is 3.2 ounces of 2 stroke oil / gallon of gas, or 1.6 ounces of oil in half-a-gallon of gas. Here is a mixture chart.

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.

Trimmer bogs down and stalls and does not seem to run up to full speed


May need carburetor adjusting or you may have some bad fuel mixture. I would mix up some fresh fuel mixture and try it. I would get my new gas from the gas station and not from the can in the garage.
Good Day.
