Question Homelite Bandit Leaf Blower Fuel

Help!
I inherited a Homelite Bandit (150 hp) leaf blower and there is no owner's manual to go with it. I know how to start it but I need to know what kind of fuel goes in it. (I know it's a mixture... but just have no idea of how much of each or what are the two items to be mixed) Is it gas and oil?? Is there anyone who can help me with this? I would REALLY APPRECIATE IT if anyone can offer some insight on the matter.

Using a push broom on a large driveway is the pits.......

Thanks!

Oops! I meant 150 MPH, not 150 HP, for the leaf blower. (If it was 150 HP, that would be a KILLER leaf blower...) Sorry....

Hello Carol109, I have a Bandit weedeater and it uses 40:1 which is one gallon of gas and 3.2 ounces of 2 cycle oil. Use any quality 2 cycle oil and you should be able to find it in 3.2 once bottles....Mike

If you are intrested - if you want to calculate the number of ounces of 2-cycle oil that is needed per gallon of gas. 128 divided 40 (the ratio you need) = number of ounces per gallon of gas (3.2 in this case).

Equalivants - 128 ounces = 1 gallon
