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 mighty lite 26bv gas Blower won't run full speed or only in Full Choke


Sounds like a lean condition. Rebuild carb, replace fuel lines and fuel filter and you should be ready to blow the leaves.

How much oil do you use? in the mighty lite


Homelite Mighty Lite engines require the gas/oil ratio to be mixed at 50:1. That is 2.6 ounces of oil per gallon or 1.3 ounces of 2 stroke oil per half gallon of gas. I recommend using synthetic oil. It lubricates much better, allows the engine to run cooler and smokes less.

I need to know the correct ratio of fuel mix for homelite blower/vac


It is 50:1. That is 2.6 Ounces 2 stroke oil/ US Gallon or 1.3 ounces of oil / 1/2 US Gallon. I recommend synthetic and adding Stabil brand gas stabilizer to the mix. It helps greatly.

What is the proper pre-mix ratio for my Homelite ht180v blower?


Most all of the 2 stroke Homelite products use a 50:1 fuel mix. That is 2.6 ounces of oil (use synthetic) to 1 gallon of gas. Going to an even 3 oz. won't hurt. It will actually help if your machine tends to run and has been tuned on the "lean" side.

Homelite gas trimmer ut20602 from 1998 need oil mix ratio...is it 40:1 or 50:1


Use the 50:1 ratio oil mix.the oil bottle will tell you how much oil that you will need to mix with how much gas you have,40:1 will make the trimmer smoke too much and it will foul plugs prematurely but won't hurt the machine.

How much oil do i put in the gas for my homelite gas blower


Probably be best if you supplied the model number off the unit, but it's pretty safe to say that if it is a newer model (less than 15 years old) if you bought a very good brand of synthetic 2-cycle oil, you would be safe mixing it at 40:1. (About 3.2 oz per gallon)

Don't use regular auto engine oil, make sure it's for lawnmowers/motorcycles, etc.
