It means that 50 parts of gasoline should be combined with 1 part of 2-cycle oil. So 2.6 fl.oz of oil per gallon of gas.

    I have purchased two Echo blowers PB-250-LN. Had no problem with the first one. Second one after about a year, the plastic recoil spring holder broke. Warranty repair would have cost me more than repairing it myself. This basically is a good product, but the plastic used here is a no no. Too much stress for plastic. However, I did just buy a PB-2520 for my grandson as well as one of the string trimmers. Please do not cut quality in critical areas like the recoil spring holder.

    + PROS: Basically a good product
    - CONS: Low quality plastic of the recoil spring holder
