weed eater 15-inch cut

Greetings to all,
what is the spark plug gap for this weed eater "Featherlite Fl20". Someone put oil in the tank, then put gas in the tank and tried to mix the mixture in the tank...How do I clean the system out...

Gap the plug to .030". Dump the old mix out, refill with the proper mix, and push the primer several times. The primer will circulate the new fuel into the carb, and flush the old mix out.

Actually, the plug gap will be .025". I've seen these low end units with substandard ignition armatures not have the power to fire a .030" gap.
