What mixing oil should be used for a Homelite leaf blower?


Answer by  Jimbob (2275)

Two cycle mixing oil should be used and most likely the mixing ratio will be 32 to 1. The other common mixture is 50 to 1 but if in doubt at least make 40 to one as will still run.

These can be tricky. You need to get this fuel ration just right or you can damage the engine of these blowers and burn them out. The fuel oil mixture should be about 32:1 4oz 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas. Now this isn't exact for every blower but it should be used as a base.

The homelite manual for the Homelite leaf blower says the mixing oil should be 2 cycle oil and you should use 4 ounces 2-cycle oil to one gallon of gas or 32:1 for the fuel:oil.


Answer by  Riley (765)

It depends on the blower. If it is a 4 cycle it does'nt take mix. Most blowers today are 4 cycles. The older 2 cycle blowers do need mix. Manufacturers now offer 2-cycle oil in 2. 6 oz. containers for easy mixing. Add 1 gallon gasoline to get desired 50:1 ratio.

Two cycle small engine oil should be sued for this device. The mixing ration should be 32 to 1. Make sure that you use a proper mixing container to mix oil and gasoline. Use only those contaqiners that are recommended for gasoline.

For a 25cc leaf blower you would need to have a ratio of 32:1. Use 4 ounces cycle oil to 1 gallon gas.

Last week, I bought a quart of Marvyn's Mystery Oil. The directions said that you should mix 10% oil into the gas. I did this and it was fine.

I will suggest two cycle oil should be used with the ratio of 40 to 1.It also depends upon blower
