Answer: 
The unit comes with a small container of oil that you mix with one gallon of gas. It is supposedly formulated to combat inferior gas and protect the motor during periods o non use.

Answer: 
50:1 ratio is correct for this model. They sell small, one bottle to each gallon, or you can buy a large bottle that has a dispenser to add the correct amount of oil and gas treatment to your gas. The later is the more economical product.

Answer: 
I use 28:1 in all my stroke engines. Some engines recommend 32:1 (old Lawnboy, etc), but 28:1 is fine for all 2-stroke engines. I fly giant scale RC planes and I use the same gas/oil mixture in my $600 and $1000 2-stroke aircraft engines as I do in my lawn equipment. You can only harm a 2-stroke engine by adding to LITTLE 2-stroke engine oil, not by adding to much.
Full synthetic 2-stroke engine oils Read More

Full synthetic 2-stroke engine oils like Amzoil is a different story. You can't harm anything permanently by adding to much oil to the gas, but typically you mix 50:1 with the high-performance 2-stroke oils.
What I do is buy a 2-stroke oil (Opti+) that comes in a graduated bottle, and mix one gallon at a time. Read Less

With the newer trimmers you shouldn't have a leakage problem as the gas tank caps are well made and they fit securely. If this was not the case you'd have leakage using the unit when you turn it upside down for trimming purposes.

Answer: 
I would say no. The instructions specifically state that a 50:1 gas/old ratio is required. I would not deviate from this. Deviated from 50:1 could cause motor breakdown and/or gum up the valves with too much oil in the gasoline. When it comes to details like this, I would deviate. Hope this helps.

You'll never damage a 2-stroke engine from adding too much 2-stroke engine oil to the gas.
Having said that, you WILL damage a 2-stroke engine by adding too little oil to the gas.
Adding too much oil to the gas mixture may cause horrendous amounts of smoke, and the engine may not run properly, but no lasting damage will occur.

There are two VERY DISTINCT kinds of 2-stroke engine oil 'high performance' synthetic like Opti+ and Amzoil, and then the conventional stuff like Valvoline. Conventional 2-stroke engine oil is mixed 28:1 or 32:1. However, the synthetic is usually 50:1. Read Less

Hi RonB,
Yes, your Toro will accept .080" size line. The cutting ability and duration between bump-feeds will be compromised, but it can be used. When purchasing new line, use the recommended .095" size.

2-Cycle 25.4cc Attachment Capable Curved Shaft Gas String Trimmer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 191.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Try making it less cheaply. This is a major disappointment to say anything bad about Toro, but I think they have given in to cheap manufacturing standards. I got this home, it fell together perfectly, had it ready to use in 5 minutes or less. I filled it with gas, and when I pressed the primer bulb, I was greeted with squirts of gasoline on my hands. The bulb was only attached at one end. The other one had either lost its clip or simply never had one. I drained it, disassembled it, re-boxed it and returned it. I went for a Husquvarna. I have always used Toro products and they seem to last forever. I'm hoping that this is an aberration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great value for the money The trimmer was easy to assemble, starting as per the instructions and had great speed on the trim line. This is the second one I have owned, the first with weekly use lasted 6 years.
Date published: 2016-10-11
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product ever Impossible product to use. The string feeder constantly stops working so that you have to stop and manually pull it out. If you pull it out too long, rather than just cutting off, it wraps around the shaft and stalls the machine. The poor design of the string assembly makes it so that you'll spend about 1 hour each time respooling the string. Do yourself a favor and buy something else. It has gone in the garbage, and I'll try to find another brand that actually works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Trimmer The trimmer was easy to assemble. It starts exactly as it is supposed to if you follow the directions. The trimmer cuts great. I love that you can turn the shaft upside down for edging. It is a bit noisier than I expected. The trimmer is light in weight and is easy to handle and maneuver. It appears to be well made and should last many lawn-cutting seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic trimmer. Excellent trimmer. Easy to assemble. Started up without a hitch. I love the way the trimmer feels, handles and operates. The handle on the shaft with it's offset added to it's easy handling. I have used the Weedeater brand for years but felt it was time to shake things up. I personally will stick with Toro and Home Depot from now on.
