If it's not been started for that long, ensure that any remaining crud in the tank and fuel lines is cleaned out before even attempting to start it.

Put in a NEW plug, then mix up some 50:1 mix of unleaded and good synthetic 2-stroke oil (Sthil or similar). This will produce an almost smoke-free exhaust, and won't foul the plug.

If it does start, be prepared for LOTS of smoke initially, as all the old oil from inside the engine burns off.

Pls HELP What gas/oil mixture for homelite 2006 UT20026 & 1999 UT20724 both r Straight shaft Weed eaters, Sam


Just buy and use a good multi-mix oil. I have been both using and selling a Pro-mix that when mixed with fuel can be use any 2 cycle 16-1 to 50-1 mixes. Saves a lot time hunting for different mix containers. Other than it is 40-1.

Lost manual does this weed eater take regular gas or is it a mix


Want to give us a hint as to what kind of weed Eater this is? Most gas models use a mixture but the ratio can vary between manufacturers.

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.

At any home store, wallmart or HDW you can find a 3.2 oz. bottle 2cyl oil for a one gallon of gas and not have to guess. That would be a 50:1 mixture

Weed eater wont start,put straight gas in it.


if you didn't mix any oil with the fuel,you probally burnt the piston and cylinder up.the only to find out if you did is to pull the muffler off and look inside the cylinder and see if there are any scoring on the piston.if there is you need to replace the piston and cylinder assembly.most cost $100.00 or more.usually they are not worth repairing.i know this is not good news but i hope this helped,let me know.................
