Gas/oil mix for a weedeater

I inherited a Homelite weedeater. What is the correct oil/gas mix for it?
It is 200 miles away right now, so I don't know the model number. Did they
have different mixes for them, or all the same? It didn't come with a
manual. Went to Home Depot, and snooped, but it wasn't on the outside of
the box.

Edwin has the right answer again. He quoted Homelite and posted from experience. I mix for my Homelite weed whacker at 50:1 as well. Its the same mix I use in my Husqvarna chain saw. I buy either those little 2.6oz bottles and mix them with 1 gallon of gas or use one of those bottles with the measuring dohickey thing. I only mix up 1 gallon at a time. I do not know about synthetic oils and such. Regualr old 2 cyl oil in fresh gas is all that required. My homelite is about 10 years old and wont quit. (I really want an Echo, RedMax, Stihl or Husqvarna trimmer but that will have to wait till my homelite dies)

That is good. My new Husky saw came with those bottles, and will use the same mix. I wanted to be sure. Having two different mixes around has disaster written all over it.

This works out ot 50:1. This may be a synthetic oil and, if so, regular oil would be a diferent ratio.
What is the appropriate fuel-mix for my unit? Answer: Mix Homelite Premium Exact Mix oil with unleaded gasoline. When using the 2.6-ounce Exact Mix oil, thoroughly mix the entire contents with 1 gallon (4 liters) of fresh, unleaded gasoline. When using the 16-ounce Exact Mix oil, squeeze the oil to the 2.6-ounce fill line in the reservoir. Mix this with 1 gallon (4 liters) of fresh, unleaded gasoline. Exact-Mix engine oil, when mixed with gasoline according to the instructions on the oil package, will provide complete lubrication protection for the engine. Additionally, Exact Mix oil contains an antioxidant fuel stabilizer. Under average conditions, fuel mixed with Exact-Mix oil will stay fresh up to 30 days.
2 ounces 2 cycle engine oil to one gallon regular gasoline.

Most small engines like chainsaws run well on 32:1, which means 32 ounces of gasoline per one ounce of two stroke oil.
This means four (4) ounces of oil per galon of gasoline. Be sure to buy "two cycle" oil, not ordinary motor oil. Many two cycle oils have picture of chainsaw on the front of the bottle. Two cycle and two stroke are different names, same thing.
If you use too much oil, the motor will smoke, and foul plugs early. If you use no oil, or too little, you risk the piston rod siezing to the crankshaft. Which makes for a "throw it out and buy another one" moment.

Dear Rich, Two ounces would make for 64:1 mixture, which is more lean than anything I've seen. Except for some new synthetic oils which run 100:1. What is the source of your information?

I stand corrected. I took a look at one of those little bottles and it's 2.6 onces I don't know what made me think it was 2 ounces. I need coffee... : )

I have a LawnBoy lawnmower and I take 2 cans of lawnboy oil and mix it in my 5 gallon gas can. I not only use this gas for my lawnmower, but snowblower, chainsaw, weedwacker, hedge trimmer, and lawnblower. I've been doing this for many years and have never had any problems with any of the engines. My advice is get a can and mix the oil in it and use. one can of oil to a 2 1/2 gal can. In other words my comment is "one size fits all".

Lost the manual a long time ago - Interestingly I still do have my husqvarna manual. The dealer (A chainsaw only shop) not only told me to use high octane but told be if at all impossible to only use Mobil! Go figure. Doing hurricane cleanup with my husky after katrina I couldn't be picky about the gas, brand or octane and yet never had a problem.
There is no need for a homelite manual for confirming fuel. Its 50:1, same as your chainsaw.

What type of gasoline should I use? Answer: All Homelite 2-cycle engines operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use, mixed with high-quality 2-cycle oil formulated for air-cooled engines.

Your Husqvarna 2.6oz bottles will be perfect. Don't get sucked into brands and think you must use homelite oil in a homelite, etc.

Even at 2.6 ounces, sounds a bit lean to me. I know the technology is improving, but I'd be tempted to run a bit richer than that. Use the 2.6 ounce, and only pump 0.8 galons, that kind of thing. I'd risk a fouled plug before risking a siezed piston.
Thanks for going back for a second look.

When I took my small engine repair course, we were told that outboards are water cooled. They run a lot cooler, and the outboard oil won't handle ethe heat of air cooled engines.

HOw many oz in your Lawnboy can? I think 32:1 will run in just about anything. Lawnboy oil is supposed to be really good product, and I'd believe it would run in anthing two stroke.

Homelite String Trimmer Gas/Oil Mixture

16:1 is a safe mixture on older two strokes. Sixteen parts gas to one part oil.

That is not optimal performance, though. If you're just using it on occasion and want to get by this mixture will work. You will foul the plug every now and then. The harder you run it the less fouling occurs. You'll also have a little smoke from the exhaust. But the engine will have all the lubrication it needs providing the carb is set properly.

If you want to push the performance you can go to 32:1 or 40:1 and stop there. There's nothing magic about a definite ratio say 40:1 compared to 39:1. It's just easier to figure out how much gas to use to a given amount of oil.

If you go to the lighter oil mixes, use a good grade of oil, like the factory stuff or stihl two stroke. It's a little more expensive, but you won't use much over a gallon of mix a month in trimmer, unless you're commercial. Only mix it in quarts to avoid old fuel problems.

Set your high speed carb setting for max rpms at full throttle, then cut it back about a 1/16 turn to get a little richer mixture. That's for running the engine a little cooler and for lubrication. Never leave that setting at max rpms. The leaner mixtures get the higher revs but less power and are death on a two stroke.
