The right gas to oil ratio will depend on your backpack leaf blower. Usually, a two-cycle engine uses a 50:1 or 40:1 2 stroke oil to gas ratio. But to know the exact measurements of the oil and gas you need to mix, it is best to go and check your owner`s manual.
Genuine Poulan 2 cycle engine oil; 40:1 ratio – 40 parts of gasoline to 1 part Poulan oil. This blend is designed to extend engine life and to provide smokeless exhaust.
For a mixing ratio of 1 : 50 you need 5 litres of high-octane gas and 0.10 litres (100 ml) of STIHL two-stroke oil.
Most modern chainsaws, string trimmers, leaf blowers and other small-engine two-stroke equipment recommend a 50:1 oil mix ratio, but some recommend 40:1 and older two-stroke equipment might even call for 32:1.

Most STIHL gasoline-powered equipment runs on a 50:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil.
40 to 1 ratio

This equals 25mls of two stroke oil to 1 litre of petrol.

Mixing 2-stroke

For example, if you need to mix 5 litres of 2-stroke fuel at a 50:1 ratio, you will need 5 litres of petrol and 100ml of oil.

50 to 1 ratio is yet another common recommendation for many newer leaf blower models. To get the right 50 to 1 mix, add 2.6 ounces of oil to a gallon of gas. A 60 to 1 mix calls for 2.1 ounces of oil for the same gallon, while an 80 to 1 mix needs just 1.6 ounces of oil.
For most engines like lawnmowers, leaf blowers, snow blowers, and generators, experts recommend that you use unleaded gas with an 87-octane rating and a max of 10% ethanol.
Two-cycle engines, like those in leaf blowers, require a gas and oil mix — the oil is a special type designed to mix with gas, and not motor oil. The oil bottles will generally be for mixing with either a gallon of gas or 2½ gallons of gas, depending on the volume of the oil.
In fact, the 4 stroke engine will pollute less burning 50:1 than a 2 stroke using the same fuel. This is because the valve system on a 4 stroke provides more complete burning. You better never run 2 stroke on pure gas, though… That will quickly ruin the engine.
Per the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the specific ratio – the ratio of the discharge pressure over the suction pressure – is used for defining fans, blowers and compressors. Fans have a specific ratio of up to 1.11, blowers from 1.11 to 1.20 and compressors have more than 1.20.
Mixing ratios

For a mixing ratio of 1 : 50 you need 5 litres of petrol and 0.10 litres (100cm³) of STIHL two-stroke oil.

100:1 – Mix 50ml of oil per 5ltrs of fuel.

Recommended by Yamaha and Suzuki for most of their small two stroke engines up to about 30hp, this ratio requires the least amount of TCW3 two stroke oil. The result of using this ratio (less oil) is reduced spark plug fouling and less smoke.

You want to mix 2.6 ounces of oil to one gallon of gasoline for a 50:1 mixture. If you`re mixing up two gallons of gasoline you will have to mix 5.2 ounces of oil to two gallons of gasoline for a 50:1 mixture. I would recommend using fresh gasoline that has an octane rating of 89.
A: Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We have reached out to the manufacturer and their answer is, “Yes, the TruFuel 50:1 Pre-Mixed Fuel Plus Oil will work in the Husqvarna 130BT back pack leaf blower as long as the owners manual specifies 2 Cycle 50:1 fuel mixture.
10W40 oil has a higher viscosity, retaining more thickness than 10W30 as the temperature rises. In that case, 10W-40 motor oil would technically provide better protection against engine wear contact in higher temperatures.

NO, all blowers are designed to be run on a specified mixture, when using the manufacturer`s recommended two stroke oils.
