Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
How long did you run your old blower without a proper mixture of oil and gas? Is your old blower performing to your satisfaction, now that you have added the correct fuel/oil mixture?
Thanks for this information. I have a suggestion for you.
I suggest that you start your blower and use it for fifteen to twenty minutes. At this point it will have reached full operating temperature. If your blower will continue to operate at full power, beyond this time frame, then it will be okay.
Keep in mind that heat causes expansion. So, if your blower will continue to operate, after it reaches full operating temperature, this means that the damage from the straight gas wasn't too extreme.
Just make sure you use the correct mixture from this point on.
