On the bandit, you are safe with a 40:1 ratio. In other words 8oz. of oil to 2.5 gallons of fuel.

What is the fuel ratio for a homelite LX30 chainsaw,ive been told 30/1 50/1 25/1 40/1. Which is correct thanks.


Find an oil you like and mix it according to the oil recommendations.
I use Opti-2 in all my 2cycle fuel mix and it's a 100:1.
What the oil manufacturer says to mix the oil/fuel is what you go by, not what the engine manufacturer says.

1990 Suzuki GSF 400 Bandit will not idle


Hi, Anonymous check your idle circuit passages for contamination also you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the choke off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air-fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air-fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air-fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air-fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

Is a gas and oil mix required for homelite bandit chain saw 33 cc. if so how much. just got it from a pawn shop


Yes! Normally 32:1 gas oil mixture is what you will need. The easiest way is to buy the oil in pre-measured bottles (Usually available in 6 packs). That way all you have to do is add one bottle per one gallon of gas.
Hope this helps.
(Don't forget bar oil)

We have a Homelite Leaf Blower HB-180V Please adfvise the correct gas mixture for this product. Thanks. Bonnie Frommeyer


This appears to be an older model, which means more oil was allowed to be mixed with the fuel and the carburetors were tuned accordingly. The EPA has changed all that now. Your mix ratio is listed at 32:1. See the simple chart.

I just bought a used bx-90 bandit and it runs great. The problem is that fuel oozes up thruthe top of the fuel tank right where the fuel line goes in. It runs down the side of the tank and all over...


Just replace the fuel lines they become hard and shrink allowing leakage. If your tank is like upper the part number is HM-0745499 or like lower part number HM-UP03825 or you can take to local small engine dealer and he will probably change cheaper than you can buy.

I need to no what oil/fuel mixture the homelite backpack blowers use


It should have the mixture on a lable near the fuel filler cap; something like 40:1, or 50:1.Home Depot sells small bottles of 2-cycle oil for homelite engines. Mix one to a 1-gal of gasoline.

BX 90 homelite leaf blower two idle screws


The initial setting is 1 1/2 turns out. Screw them all the way in and them turn them 1 1/2 turns out. This is the starting position and should start, it may need some final adjustments to run like you need it to run.
Remember more the screw is out the more fuel it will get.
Good Day.
