We have lost the information to make the gas mix for the trimmer. We used the gas mix we had last year and it put out a white exhaust. What is the gas/oil mix?

Don't use any fuel that is over 30 days old. It loses its volatility and absorbs moisture and creates gum and varnish. Only use OLD fuel that has had fuel stabilizer added to it. To give you the proper gas/oil mix without knowing what machine you have, suffice it to say it is 40:1 or 50:1. Here is a chart explaining how much oil you add in a gallon of gas. To mix a half gallon use one-half the amount of oil stated. And GET RID of that old fuel mix!

My 10 year old weedeater hedge trimmer ran fine last year when I put it away for the season. When I tried to start it this year it wouldn't even fire. I put fresh fuel mix in and a new spark plug and...


I would check for spark and check the fuel lines, especially if fuel is left in it. Also if fuel left in you will have to empty the lines and carburetor or pull it enough to clear. Another thing to consider is that if fuel was left in it that the carburetor may need a rebuild, replacing the diaphrams.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Trimmer is producing alot of white/blue smoke, got it to start and it will keep running, but the smoke seems excessive when using it. Not sure what the problem is.


This engine does NOT used mixed gas at all! It uses straight unleaded gas. If your using mixed fuel of any mixture ratio in the engine it is really going to smoke badly. What fuel are you using please?

What is the gas and fuel mixture for a homelite st-185 weed eater


If it's not been started for that long, ensure that any remaining crud in the tank and fuel lines is cleaned out before even attempting to start it.

Put in a NEW plug, then mix up some 50:1 mix of unleaded and good synthetic 2-stroke oil (Sthil or similar). This will produce an almost smoke-free exhaust, and won't foul the plug.

If it does start, be prepared for LOTS of smoke initially, as all the old oil from inside the engine burns off.

you need to clean the carburator of varnish from the oil/gas mix,over time and especially if it has set with gas/oil in the lines it will create a varnish buildup and plug the fuel lines,another thing is to remove the muffler which can get carboned up from the same oil/gas mix during combustion and block the exhaust port and create back pressure and cause loss of power to throttle

Weed eater wont start,put straight gas in it.


if you didn't mix any oil with the fuel,you probally burnt the piston and cylinder up.the only to find out if you did is to pull the muffler off and look inside the cylinder and see if there are any scoring on the piston.if there is you need to replace the piston and cylinder assembly.most cost $100.00 or more.usually they are not worth repairing.i know this is not good news but i hope this helped,let me know.................

Ryobi string trimmer 32.1 what do mix gas and oil or just gas?


Ryobi trimmers I have had use a 32:1 oil mix. Just pick up a little bottle of Ryobi 2-cycle oil and read it to see that it will give a 32:1 mix in a gallon of gas. Pour it into a gallon of gas, and maybe a little fuel stabilizer too, shake it up and you should be good for the season.
