Generally 2-cycle engines use ratios of 32:1 to 50:1. As a rule if you start with 40:1 you should be O.K. If your concerned that it might be to lean then start with 32:1 and if it smokes too much add 25% more gas to make it a 40:1 ratio.

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.

Homelite 25cc 2cycle trimmer.built in March of 1999. what is the proper oil to gas ratio?


If you use a synthetic 2-stroke oil, you can easily get by running a 40:1 ratio mix...that is 3.2oz oil/gallon of gas. A richer oil mix won't hurt either (say 20:1 (2X the oil of 40:1). I recommend synthetic always be used alongwith Stabil fuel treatment because after about 30 days, gas loses its volatility and begins to breakdown without it...causing fuel problems.

Do I mix the gas with 2 cycle oil for the homelite mighty lie 26vt gas grass trimmer and what is ratio I need?


Your MightyLite trimmer requires a 50:1 fuel mix. Use a high quality 2 cycle oil that is made for lawn equipment. Do not use outboard boat oil...it will cause your trimmer to run too hot. If you use the mix that has fuel stabilizer in it, then the bottle will be 3.2 ounces. Use one 3.2 ounce per gallon of gasoline.
Good luck!

What is the proper oil to gas ratio for a Homelite 16 inch 150 Automatic that is approximately 40 years old?


Most of the old Homelites were 32:1. I eliminated the mix problem for all my equipment when I started using a synthetic 2-cycle oil called OPTI-2. Somehow it works for all 2-cycle saws/trimmers/blowers etc. I've got equipment that's 20+ years old and still running strong with the OPTI-2.

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.
