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.

What is proper gas/oil ratio for homelite grass trimmer


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.

Was given a homelite zipstart versatool string trimmer (25cc). what is the proper gas to oil ratio for this tool?


between 32:1 and 50:1 should be OK.

The best bet is to buy the premeasured 2 cycle fuel/oil mix in the bottles. They come with 8oz for a gallon of fuel.

Homelite zip start 2cycle trimmer.


I had this same problem, would run a couple of seconds, stop, and you couldn't start it again.
Had good gas/oil mix 50:1 and 25cc Homelite. Had replaced the fuel filter, gas, spark plug, and took carb apart and cleaned with carb cleaner and primer bulb worked fine. None of that fixed it. What did? Take the muffler off and see if it will start and run with the muffler off. If it does, chances are the muffler is clogged. Also check the exhaust ports and clean them out if plugged with black oil carbon residue.
My muffler was clogged up, took it off, cleaned out the exhaust ports, there was some oil that was in the muffler(oil that didn't burn during combustion). It now starts and runs like a champ on first or second pull.
