Depending on how long he ran it there may be internal damage to the engine. if you have not ran it i would suggest draining the tank and replacing with the proper mix. start the blower and see how it act. if he did do any damage you will know as soon as you start it. if you are not able to get it started the the rings may be junk.

Oil petrol mixture for Rockwell 26cc weedeater


Two cycle engines run on a mixture of gasoline and oil. Each engine type is designed to run on a specific gas-to-oil mix ratio.
IMPORTANT: Use only oil that is labeled for use in "Two-cycle" or "Two-stroke" engines. Home Depot and other stores now have "premixed fuel" of gas and 2 cycle oil.
To mix two-cycle fuel, start by putting correct amount of oil in gas can. Then slowly add correct amount of gasoline. Do not try to mix gas and oil directly in gas tank of equipment.

IMPORTANT: Do not use any fuel that is over 30 days old. Do not mix more fuel than you are likely to use in a month. Old fuel can gum carburetors and prevent starting. Always use fresh fuel.

The chart below shows correct amount of oil per gallon that each mixing ratio requires. Expect that yours will be between 32 gas to1 oil and 50 to 1. 32:1 and 50:1 are most popular.
Ratio GAS:OIL UNITED STATES OIL per 1 U.S. GALLON Gasoline
(128 oz.)
*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 IMPERIAL GALLON Gasoline
(160 oz.)
*INTERNATIONAL OIL per 1 LITER Gasoline
(metric)
32:1 4 oz. 5 oz. 31.25 mL 40:1 3.2 oz. 4 oz. 25 mL 50:1 2.6 oz. 3.2 oz. 20 mL

What is mixing ratio for weedater


The ratio is generally 40 to 1. That is all I have ever used. It depends also though on the quality of the oil you use. Synthetics can use a different ratio than mineral oils.

Unit not starting


Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

Gas/oil ratio for a Homlite yard broom UT 08026H blower


It's 40:1 but there are oil mixes out there now that you can buy that you mix with one gallon of gas and then it is safe for all 2-cycle engines...a real plus if you own multiple units with different mix ratios.

Gas oil ratio mix echo pb251c handheld blower


40:1 is the standard. You can achieve this by mixing a 3.2 ounce bottle of two-cycle oil with a gallon of gasoline. The best way to do that is to buy a one gallon gas can, add a little bit of gas then pour the entire 3.2 ounce bottle of oil into the tank, swish that around for about 5 seconds then fill the can the rest of the way.

Need to know oil to gas mix ratio for Craftsman 32cc, 360 cfm, 170 mph blower vac? Can someone provide ratio?


40:1 is the standard mix. Go buy one of the little containers ( 3.2 ounces) of 2-cycle oil and mix it with a gallon of gas in an approved container (like a gas can). How you mix it is, pour some gas in the container...about 1/4 of the gallon, then pour in the oil, mix well, by shaking the can then add the remaining gasoline and PRESTO, you have a 40:1 mix!

My redmax eb7001 emits white smoke while running, the more power...the more smoke


Your fuel-oil mixture has too much oil in it. The standard ratio is 40:1 which means one of the little bottles of 2-stroke oil (about 2.6 fluid ounces) is added to 1 gallon of gas. Homelite recommends a 50:1 ratio but 40:1 is better, at least in my opinion.

The last time you made the mix, did you pour the oil into the gas or did you pour the oil into a little bit of gas in the gas can, shake well and then fill it with a gallon of gas? The former can give you lots of smoke as well because it is not mixed thoroughly. The latter is the best way to mix because the agitation and the flow of gas mixes the oil better.

Other possible causes to this problem are: how old is the mix you are using? Did this mix sit all winter last and you sre using it now? If so, did you add some Stabil to the mix before storing?

Depending on your answers to the above questions, you can determine why you are getting so much white smoke.

My recommendation to you is to:
(a) Empty the blower gas tank.
(b) Mix a fresh batch of oil and gas in an approved fuel container.
(c) Pull the spark plug and inspect it, if it is black/sooty replace it.
(d) Pour the new mix into the tank and start the blower.

This should get rid of the excess smoke, if it doesn't, let me know here. Good Luck!

Homelite broom help I put way too much oil in now it's smoking!


i agree finding the ratio is no as easy as it should be. yes. drain the tank. don't use the old gas somewhere else. use fresh gas & mix ratio in separate gas can or container. use a bit of ether/starting fluid into the air-filter inlet opening help fire it up. a new plug is fairly low cost and easy and that might also be needed after the oil bath and 3 years.
