Previous homeowner left a homelite b250 0 801 backpack BLOWER. What type of fuel does it use note no owners manual on homelite site


It uses Hi test gasoline. NOT regular. You'll be having hard start problems if you use regular grade fuel. The engine is a 2 stroke which means you MUST mix oil into the gasoline before you put it in the blower gas tank. The proper 2 cycle oil can be had at any home improvement store or garden departments in places like Walmart. Do not use automotive oil or you will have a huge amount of smoke when you run the blower. You can get an owners manual by going on Homelite's website too.

What is the correct oil mixture for mac 130


If you are using McCulloh Custom Lubricant, mix 40 parts regular gasoline to 1 part Lubriocant (put 3.2 fluid ounce of Lubricant in 1 US gallon of regular gasoline).

If you are using SAE 40 weight two cycle oil, mix 20 parts regular gasoline to 1 part tow cycle oil (put 6.4 fluid ounce of two cycle oil in 1 US gallon of regular gasoline).

I do not know the oil-to-gas ratio to mix/buy. My husband passed away, and I cannot find the manual. Help, please. THANK YOU


Can you find the model number on the Homelite Mighty Lite BlowerVac?

For the UT08520 and UT08921 26cc blowers and the UT08550 and UT08951 blower vacs, you can mix the Homelite Premium Exact Lubricant with gasoline following the label directions. For other synthetic oil additives, use 2.6 oz of additive per 1 gallon of gasoline. (It's 20ml to 1 l if you use the metric system.) That's a 50:1 ratio (gasoline to additive).

Many Homelite Blower manuals are available here: http://manuals.homelite.com/documents?page=5 . You should try to find your exact model and then check the manual to confirm that your model blower vac uses this same ratio of oil to gasoline. You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read the manual.

I hope this helps.

Homelite whipper snipper amnyal needed. I need to know the size of the cutting cord or citting line size and the fuel mix for the homlite whipper snipper model HBC265JSNB SN1008015039 LwA N197 are all...


This Homelite gas trimmer runs on a 50:1 mix of unleaded automobile gasoline and two-cycle engine oil. That is equivalent to 2.6 fluid ounces (80 ml.) of oil to one gallon of gasoline or 4 tsp. (20 ml.) of oil per quart of gas, or 2 tsp. (10 ml.) of oil per pint of gas. Don't use automotive motor oil or two-cycle outboard motor oil in your Homelite gas trimmer; they contain additives detrimental to trimmer performance. Use mixed fuel within 30 days.

I would like to know the exact ratio of oil and gas of my homelite 720 generator,i lost the manual and i have to be more specific in fuelling it.what does it mean by 50 is to 1? thank you


Find the manual here http://www.homelite.com/service_support/product_owners_manuals b> Mixing the fuel The Generator is powered by a two-stroke, air-cooled engineand requires a fuel mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle fuel lubricant. NOTE: Always mix two-cycle engine lubricant likeHomelite's Exact Mix Semi Synthetic Lubricant with gasoline before fueling theunit. Running the Generator ongasoline alone will ruin the engine. NOTE: Recommend you use ONLY Homelite or G-oil® inyour product.( Or any 2 cycle motor oil in this is not available) Use a mixture of 50 parts unleaded regular gasoline and 1part two-stroke engine lubricant (50:1). Use branded 87 octane (R+M+2) unleadedgasoline or gasohol (maximum 10% ethyl alcohol, or 15% MTBE, no methylalcohol.)
NOTE: Always mix lubricant and gas in the properproportions: 2.6 ounces of lubricant to one gallon of unleaded gaso­line. To mix the lubricant and fuel together for use: 1. Pour 1/2 gallon of gasoline into a clean gas canor other container approved for fuel storage. Do not mix the fuel and lubricantdirectly in the Generato's fuel tank. 2. Add 2.6 ounces of two-cycle engine lubricant tothe gasoline mixture. 3. Add the remaining 1/2 gallon of gasoline. 4. Close the container holding the gas/lubricantmix and swirl the can to blend contents together. NOTE: Do not mix more than you will use in a month,and shake the container to blend thoroughly before each use. Using an old fuelmixture can cause starting difficulty or damage. DO NOT USE E85 FUEL. IT WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. NOTE: Fuel system damage or performance problems resultingfrom the use of an oxygenated fuel containing more than the percentages ofoxygenates stated previously are not covered under warranty. Ethanol. Gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol by volume(commonly referred to as E10) or 15% ethanol by volume (commonly referred to asE15) are acceptable. E85 is not. Whenadding fuel to the Generator, make sure the unit is sitting on level ground andthat the engine is not hot. Fuelonly with recommended 50:1 mixture of gasoline and lubricant as described in Mixingthe Fuel. Toadd fuel to the Generator: 1. Cleanarea around fuel tank cap, if necessary. 2. Removethe fuel tank cap. 3. Inserta clean funnel into the fuel tank. 4. Slowlypour gasoline/lubricant mixture into fuel tank. NOTE: Filltank no higher than 1/2 in. from top to allow for gasoline expansion. 1. Reinstallfuel cap. 2. Clean up any spills. J

Wht is the gas to oil ratio for a homelite vac


Yours is not a current model and I did not find a manual. The following is an excerpt from a 26cc MightyLite Blower/Vac UT08550/UT08951 "Operator's Manual":
This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean 1 gallon container approved for gasoline.
Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use.
Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix lubricant with gasoline according to the instructions on the package. If Premium Exact Mix lubricant is not available, use a high quality synthetic 2-cycle engine lubricant, mixed at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US).
Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant.
NOTE: Premium Exact Mix fuel mix will stay fresh up to 30 days. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30 day period.
PREMIUM EXACT MIX (50:1)
GasolineLubricant
1 gallon (US) 2.6 oz.
1 Liter 20 cc (20 ml)

1 quart fuel:3/4 ounces of oil = 1 Gallon fuel:3 ounces of oil or slightly less than 43:1. Not what a current manual recommends.

If properly adjusted your blower will operate fine on 50:1 regardless of what the manual reads. HTH
