Ratio of oil to gas question

Just bought this based on all the good reviews. I didn't find the instructions for the mix ratio of oil to gas very clear. Looks like you can use 40:1 or up to 50:1 on this blower. I fired it up with 40:1 and it runs just fine but was wondering what ratio most of you are using and if so for how long? Wouldn't want to go to 50:1 and find out it burns out the motor over time.
Asked by: MouseKiller16
The manual states that the mixture of gas/oil should be between 25:1and 50 :1. The maximum ethanol content is 10 percent.

why is this now discontinued at home depot? it had high ratings. this is still available at Lowes but now I'm hesitate to purchase it?
Asked by: momjones
Ours is a couple years old and it is ready for a carb rebuild. But it has leaked gas for at least the past year. In today's disposable society, we will probably just replace it with a good one. It worked great for the first year to year and a half. But then it became really hard to start - 10 pulls. Gradually it became hard to get it up to speed and keep it running. Bottom line - buy a Stihl once and pay the extra money and get something that will last.

23.9 cc 170 mph 441 CFM Hand Held Gas Blower is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 392.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gas leaf blower! Bought this Hitachi Model RB24EAP blower new at Home Depot 5 years ago in early Sept 2011. What sold me was the price ($99 on sale) and the 7-year Consumer Warranty that was offered. Have used this blower regularly for 5 years to blow debris from sidewalks & driveway on a large corner lot withOUT any issues. Starts on first or second pull of the string starter. Have had a couple of other gas blowers over the years....this is the best by far. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best leaf blower on the market Best hand blower out there. Have had it for three seasons now, most powerful hand held blower I've ever used. Starts on the second pull every time ! choke once and then no choke for the start. I'm a small engine machanic and have never done any maintenance to this blower in 3 years. Always starts on the second pull. Well done Hitachi ! Couldn't ask for a better blower and its a good price too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryobi Gas Blower This Ryobi gas blower is super light, and easy to start, we are very happy with this purchase through Home Depot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs Great, Light, and Priced Well! So I bought this thing about a year and a half ago based on online reviews and also my neighbor's recommendation. This thing runs absolutely like a charm. Starts incredibly easy, is very light, and has plenty of power. It also comes with a 7 year warranty. Pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Cant recommend this thing enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Depot has dropped this leaf blower Home Depot has stopped carrying this brand. Its the best you will ever find for the price. Starts very easy, instant full speed, no warm up. I don't know why but it will blow harder than any other i have owned, including ones i have taken back that were worthless. Go any where you can find it to purchase, its worth the trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so good but one tiny problem. This Blower is so amazing it has a decent size fuel tank. Its very light and quiet. The only issue i have is the air intake is on the left side. I am right handed and clothing somtimes get sucked againt the grate. Takes getting used too. But I love it.
