SOURCE: What is the fuel gas ratio for a homelite yard

The mixture should be at a 50:1 ratio, using Premium Exact Mix™ 2-cycle engine oil. If Premium Exact Mix™ 2-cycle engine oil is not available, use a high quality 2-cycle engine oil, mixed at a 50:1 ratio.

You can get the manual on the link below if you need it also.

What is the fuel to oil nixture for my attact II (200mph.)leaf blower


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.

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.

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
