Answer: 
50:1 I try to use ethanol free fuel on the advise of a small engine mechanic. The TruFuel premix works well, it's not cheap, but for the amount I use, and given the limited availability of non ethanol fuel, it's definitely not a deal breaker.

Answer: 
I personally would not use an internal combustion engine indoors or in a confined space. Carbon monoxide poisoning and exhaust fumes are hazardous. I would strongly advise against using this for other than blowing or vacuuming leaves out doors.

Answer: 
I would not recommend using this product indoors. It's a gasoline engine.
This is far too bulky to be used in a car, but it would probably work well for a truck bed or something similar. I've even seen my neighbor use the blower option on his to dry his truck after washing it. Gets every little bead of water off. Smart idea.

Customer Reviews

150 MPH 400 CFM 26cc Gas Leaf Blower Vacuum is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 253.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for your Buck I have owned this for 1yr and have found it adequate for general residential use. Good for blowing off decks, patios and driveways. Great to blow dry leaves out of landscaping. Blower is not so good at packed down wet leaves. Also it you have a larger yard with plenty if fall clean up as I do, then purchase a backpack blower. This will work, but will take a while. Leaf vacuum and mulcher is ok for small piles and areas. If you plan on doing the whole yard, you will dump the bag plenty on times. The bag tore after the first year of little use, so not very durable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY! Do not waste your money. I bought this blower and before I used the initial oil that came with it for a gallon of gas, it died. I took it back to home depot and they told me that it was dead, had been run low on oil, and could not be warrantied.. Tried to explain that I am still using the oil and initial gallon of gas that I mixed and that was exactly what the booklet said do. No dice. Didn't care. Called Ryobi to explain the issue and same thing. Basically, we are sorry, but if he said its been run low on oil, then that is what we go with. Will never waste my money on another Ryobi product. Customer service does not care about their products and home depot does not care to listen when you explain, that you followed the book. Heading to lowes to buy another leaf blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money Just picked one up earlier today and it works great! Starts very easy within 2 pulls and runs great. The exhaust down the tube quiets the blower down. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2016-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for home and even large driveways The simple version is this is perfect for a $100.00 blower. It is not commercial grade but doesn't masquerade as such anyway. Had it about 6 months and used it plenty, Pushes dirt, grass, weeds, small stones and light sticks around no problem, my driveway is about 2000 sq ft (with an uphill) and takes me about 30min or so to completely clean it. I have never pulled it more than 4 times to get it started, but I use the pre-mixed gas from home deport every time (THIS IS IMPORTANT). A couple of primes and a choke and starts right up. I haven't used the vacuum part so I can't attest to that, but for my money I would buy this again in a second.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just purchased one. After reading the reviews I have a few tips. #1 fresh fuel every time. And put a fuel stabilizer in the can with the mix oil before filling gas can. #2 Cold start-pump bulb until you see the fuel and bulb gets firm. Full choke for two pulls and half choke and full throttle. Should start right up and run it at half choke for 30 seconds while revving up and down to get the motor warm.choke off and away you go. #3 I am going to drill some small holes in connections of blower tube and eliminate any problem with blower tube falling off. #4 get a piece of webbing like the bag has and put it around bottom handle and around neck and shoulder to get some weight off your arm's. Good Luck

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ryobi Blower First Impressions I have used this blower less than 6 times. Starting is difficult despite following the priming instructions. It takes 15+ pulls to get it going. However, once started it runs fine. Restarting when warm is quick. I am using new gasoline and oil that came with the blower. Also, compared to a Stihl that I have used, the power is noticeably less. It is OK for easy blowing, but if leaves are wet or small, or embedded in the grass, this blower struggles. The design uses a left-side air intake which is against your leg if you are right-handed. But I knew this before purchase. It is just another feature that could be better. I have not used it for vacuuming yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ryobi gas blower/vac Ryobi changed the design of the vacuum attachment tube. It's now nearly impossible to use this product as a vacuum while moving around the yard. I know since I have purchased 5-6 earlier versions and the tube to the vac bag was much different (much better). Fortunately for me, the pull rope broke after two attempted uses. I returned the product for refund after a few days. I'm really disappointed in Ryobi, and am now looking for something similar from another manufacturer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheapest and possibly the worst Bought this about 5 weeks ago, and didn't get it unboxed until last week. After 10 minutes of use, the vibration from it had made my hand go numb. After 15 minutes, I put it down, drained the fuel, reboxed it. Tried to return it to the Home Depot store where I had purchased it, and they said "Tough Luck - it's been over 30 days". On the Ryobi box it says "30 Day Satisfaction Guarantee". Another tough luck. And reading the manual, there is a warning that prolonged use will cause your hand to go numb because of the vibration. I purchased this to replace a Troy Built blower that I had used for many years. Next time, I'm going to get something other than a cheap Ryobi...
