Is it safe to use 40:1 fuel/oil mix ratio in this blower

This question is from 165 MPH 391 CFM 25.4cc Low Noise Handheld Gas Leaf Blower

June 23, 2013
I've been using a 50:1 fuel/oil mix ratio in this blower w/o any problems for some time now, but I have other tools that require a 40:1 ratio and would prefer not having to prepare two different premixes. Would it be safe to use a 40:1 premix in this blower, and are there any downsides to doing this ?

Answer: 
40:1 is fine with a high octane gas and the right mixture of Stabilizer. I use the highest octane fuel with 40:1 in all my equipment and they've been running for years. Just keep your gas mixture agitated(give the gas can a shake on a regular basis). I learned that from a small engine repair man who sharpens my mower blades!

Answer: 
40 to 1 is what I use. The extra oil should give you a longer engine life as the oil is a lubricant. Other than emissions, I do not see a down side.

Answer: 
It's not going to ruin your blower if you run a richer mixture than normal in it but it might smoke more noticeably than with 50:1 and you'll likely get quicker carbon buildup in the exhaust. It's not a major difference though, and provided you use quality synthetic 2-cycle oil and good gas and maintain your unit properly, it shouldn't cause any long-term adverse effects.

Answer: 
50:1 is the average now a days with the good quality premixes. I understand it being a beating to mix 2 different cans of 2-stroke blend. I would mix 1 container at 45:1 and make sure to use 93+ octane fuel.

Answer: 
40:1 will not burn up the motor. It will mainly be a richer premix then the 50:1. More oil = more smoke, cooler engine temp, and it may foul out the plug.

This oil is the highest quality 2-cycle oil on the market today. There is no need to have more than 1 tank of fuel for your 2-cycle equipment any more. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, all 2 stroke engines require that the gas be mixed with 2 stroke oil. And be sure to note that each piece of equipment has a recommended gas to oil ratio. So be sure to add the proper amount of oil to the gas. Because I'm an old geezer I take a thick black magic marker and put HUGE XXXs on the gas can that contains the mixed gas/oil so I do not use it on anything by accident.

use standard 2 cycle oil mix you will find at home depot over by trimmers and blowers section.

To keep my ECHO leaf blower running for many years I use mid to high grade octane gasoline and not the lowest - 87 octaine I have talked to several people who own lawn care businesses and they say the higher octane gas will extend the life of the unit and its parts.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Found the secret to make this run better and move more air Now this may void any warranties, but my last Echo blower is 20 yrs old and still runs, I wanted something newer and easy starting as soon as I got this home it made me mad full throttle it didnt have have much go power or blowing power it worked but wasnt like my old one, pulled carb off made sure butterfly was opening all the way and it was, after 15-20 minutes of looking it over i noticed a stack of metal plates over exhaust port took off the 5 screws and found a restriction plate removed and put back together and started it up and man this thing woke up and works awesome it did increase exhaust noise a small amount but it works awesome now i will also show plate i removed May 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best DIY blower for around the house! Great blower for around the house and yard. I do my gutters with this unit. Usually I use a mulcher blade on my riding mower and need to followup with the blower to breakup and spread out cutting. Work well very satisfied. May 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad customer service I have had the blower for 10 months when the starter cord assembly box broke. Echo sent me to a repair shop for the warranty work. It is a simple component swap and its going to take 30 days to replace! The repair facility put a $40 hold on my credit card! Echo could care less about using common sense and just sending me a new starter. My yard is a disaster! Echo does not care! I had a STIHL for 9 years before it finally broke down. Never again will I buy an ECHO product! August 26, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not as high quality as expected Usually loving the Echo brand, as I have their weed eater. Must have had too large of an expectation. Didn't have the power I needed nor wanted. I take care of my family's lawn. So I was searching for powerful and well made. I ended up returning it, a day later. I brought home a toro, and love the power and durability. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo is the best, bar none This is just one tool from Echo that I own I also have the their Shred n Vac, and gas trimmer straight shaft. They are the best lawn tools you can have, I tried other brands and they just don't last or get the job done. Stick with a winning team"Echo" is one! August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy It was a great buy for me. It has started on the second pull every time And is powerful. I would recommend it to everyone. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product started right up, and works great. I had the same one that I bought probably 15 years ago, and bought this one because the old one finally wore out. It was cheaper to buy a new one than have the old one repaired. This one is a little bit lighter than the old one and quieter, but works the same.Nice that it is lighter and quieter! Feels about the same, still solid. I am happy with it so far. I have to figure out the blow tube a bit better, as I think I didnt get it on there correctly so the end fell off, but I am sure it will be fine. August 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Blower Not as strong as advertised. Start commercial grade but I doubt a professional would use it August 23, 2016
