Answer: 
For reference, read the Manual, page 19, you need fuel mix with specific oil. Follow this:
1- Midgrade Gas: or higher (car gas with 89 octane) is good enough
I like to use premium gas for my leave blower (92/93 octane), but that's only personal choice. It costs a few cents more but gives you better quality.
2- Echo 2 Stroke Oil: Go to Home Depot, get a few of them. Each is a 2.6oz bottle.

3- You mix 1 gallon of gas with 1 2.6oz oil bottle, and shake it well (30 times or so), and it's good to use in the machine.

Answer: 
92 octane regular gas is correct with this blower, as with any small motor. Be sure to mix 2 stroke oil with the gas. Mixture is 2.6 of 2 stroke oil to 1 gallon of gas.

Answer: 
This uses a 50:1 gas to oil mix, for two stroke engines.
In addition to that, I'd recommend using an ethanol free gasoline for the mixture, since ethanol in small engines is notorious for rotting fuel lines and gumming up the carb.

Answer: 
I just received a $250 repair estimate for a 2 year old blower. The stated reason is "gummed up carburetor" due to the use of ethanol. With a repair bill like this one, this blower is not one I would recommend. I'm not pursuing a warranty claim.

Answer: 
What issue did you have? There should have been no issues, 89 or higher octane properly premixed is fine. I use Amsoil Saber Professional at 90:1 and 93 octane. The blower is designed to accept 10% or less ethanol.

Answer: 
in my opinion, throttle on the tube is more convenient for me, because I can control everything in one hand and leave the other hand free to do other works if necessary. There are only 2 functions to be handled, 1 is to control the blow which you use constantly, 2 stop/running which you use for ignition or stop and don't touch during operation. So, it does not make sense to separate them into 2 handles.

Answer: 
You need to keep your hand on the tube handle anyways, so why add an extra contraption on the opposite side for $30 more? The hand trigger is easy to use and has a switch to auto-select the speed (just point and blow) which is great for people with arthritis or carpel tunnel.

Answer: 
It's really personal preference. I find it's easier to use on the tube, since you've already got one hand tied up controlling the tube anyway. Then your other hand is free to pick up larger debris like branches.
With the throttle on the hip, you need both hands to operate the blower, unless you use the cruise control feature.

Some models have ratings that state the amount of airflow exiting at the pipe. Stihl calls this rating "Newtons". Do you have a rating like this?

Answer: 
Echo does not appear to rate or test ANSI 175.2 standard.
comparing the airflow volume and speed between units is what you will need to look at.
The speed (velocity) rating will give you a comparison between how well heavier materials can be moved.
The volume rating will give you a comparison between how much materials can be moved.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 67 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Power This gas back pack blower has nice power. I upgraded from a hand held blower to this unit and I can now blow my yard in half the time. Not to mention I don't have kinks in my neck and shoulders from the hand held. Very easy to put together - it took about 10 minutes. Operating is easy - just like any 2 stroke motor. I use this blower on a weekly basis for about 30 minutes and need to fill the gas up about every 3rd time I use. May 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful My 1st Echo product. Purchased from Home Depot- 06/30/2014 w/ 5-yr.Consumer Warranty.First 2-seasons worked fine.3rd season & under 2-yrs.old primer bulb stuck inwards. Brought to Echo Service dealer for warranty repair & was charged $192.95 for carburetor replacement. Echo refused to honor the 5-year Consumer Warranty it advertises. Echo claims stale fuel problem instead of honoring warranty. I'll never purchase another Echo product. Save yourself a headache and buy Husquarvanna. July 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with purchase! This is the first backpack blower I have purchased and I wish I would have upgraded sooner. The price made it hard justify being that it cost more than my lawn mower but my wrist always hurt when using a standard handheld gas blower and if I was going to upgrade, I better get the most power available for leaves in the fall. This blower doesnt disappoint. I hope the quality gives me years of reliable sercice. August 7, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Powerfull Blower Got this blower to replace a 265ln that had a blown motor. Noticeably more power. Jobs that took a half hour on the old one now take 10 minutes. Starts in 1 pull every time, and even with a 58cc motor it is still easy to start the motor. Not the lightest at about 23 pounds but the power cuts your usage time down. Had it about a month time will tell long term but so far everything works really well. July 9, 2016
