Fuel Mix. To make fuel for the FS55R string trimmer, mix 2.6 U.S. fluid ounces of high-quality, two-cycle, air-cooled engine oil in 1 U.S. gallon of midgrade unleaded gasoline. Shake well before fueling. The gas should have an octane rating of at least 89, with not more than 10 percent ethanol.

Is premixed fuel better?
