The manual probably says 40:1 (3.2oz.oil to 1 gal gas) but if you use a good modern 2 cycle oil,50:1(2.6oz .oil to 1 gal gas) will suffice.

    The manual for the Yard Broom II, models UT08012 and UT08512 says 50:1. It is troubling to me how many people on here (all of the answers I've read so far, actually) are just guessing at the answer to this. Getting the mixture right is important for the machine to run properly. Also, mixing too lean a mixture (too little oil to gas) would ruin the engine, possible in just one use. Using too heavy a mix (like the 40:1 or, unbelievably, the 32:1 I saw one person recommend) would likely only foul the spark plug. Still, It's aggrevation you just don't need. When in doubt, check the manufacturers website. They often have manuals available online. Homelites website can be found at www.homelite.com. It is odd that it doesn't have the mix ratio on the cap though. I had the same problem with one where I work.

When in doubt, check the manufacturers website. They often have PDF versions of manuals available there. Homelite's can be found at www.homelite.com. It is odd though that the mixture is not stated on the gas cap. I had the same problem with one where I work.

What is the fuel to oil nixture for my attact II (200mph.)leaf blower


Your manual states it is 50:1 which is 2.6 ounces of oil/gallon of gas...or 1.3 ounces in 1/2 gallon of gas. This is a common ratio for Homelite 2 stroke engines. I recommend synthetic oil.
Specs are on page 8 of your manual.

The mixture should be at a 50:1 ratio, using Premium Exact Mix™ 2-cycle engine oil. If Premium Exact Mix™ 2-cycle engine oil is not available, use a high quality 2-cycle engine oil, mixed at a 50:1 ratio.
