What oil do i need

For 2-strokes any good quality synthetic 2-stroke oil will be fine. They usually come in pre measured bottles. Use one bottle per 1 gallon of fuel. I prefer Lucas or Red Max oil. Stay away from Stihl oil

Should I use 2 stroke oil or synthetic 2 stroke oil

Synthetic oils claim to extend the shelf life of mixed fuel. If you are going to use the fuel within 30 days of mixing use regular 2 stroke oil.

Required fuel oil mix

Two-stroke oil with a 50:1 (Gas:Oil) mix ratio is required for the Husqvarna 125B leaf blower. Using the wrong oil or improper mixture ratio can drastically affect the performance of the leaf blower.

What is percentage of oil for Ryobi cs 30

Fuel/Oil Mix ratio is 40:1. That is 3.2 oz oil per gallon of gas, or 1.6 ounces of oil/ half gallon of gas. I highly recommend using a good synthetic 2 stroke oil. Many benefits there.

Dont know what the oil gas mixture is suppose to consist of

Your manual (from Sears) states that your mix ratio is 40:1. You will need 3.2 ounces of Poulan "Pro" synthetic 2 stroke oil mixed in 1 U.S gallon of gas or you can mix 1.6 ounces of the oil in a half-gallon of gas. They suggest using the Poulan "Pro" brand synthetic oil. I do also. Synthetic oil significantly reduces wear, allows the machine to run cooler, and burns cleaner with less by-products and emissions. You can view a PDF file of your manual here:

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.

Your manual states it is 50:1 which is 2.6 ounces of oil/gallon of gas...or 1.3 ounces in 1/2 gallon of gas. This is a common ratio for Homelite 2 stroke engines. I recommend synthetic oil.
Specs are on page 8 of your manual.

Which oil should be used for mastercraft 60-3975-8 snowblower

A good rule of thumb is: In 2 stroke engines, use synthetic or synthetic-blend 2 stroke oil
In 4 strokes, if it is cold, using regular SAE oil...SAE 30 only...if using synthetic oil (highly recommended), then you can get away with using a multi-viscosity oil like 10-30. Synthetic 30 weight is OK too. Just in cold temps, standard multi-viscosity oil does not perform well and manufacturers like Briggs caution against using it, stating engine damage can result.

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.

Do I need to add oil to the gas? do. Add about 4 ounces of synthetic 2 stroke oil to 1 gallon of gas or 2 ounces to 1/2 gallon of gas. The ratio is 50:1 which equates to about 3.6oz/gallon. The extra won't hurt, especially if your equipment is tuned to the "lean" side.
