My new 40 volt Ryobi leaf blower is one of the handiest tools I've bought. No cord to deal with, or no smelly, cranky motor to start. Plenty of power (300CFM) for blowing off the sidewalks, gutters, and cars. Wide open, it will run for at least 15-20

What oil was used in the previous interval? I'm not sure that the Schaeffer 9000 5W30 is LL-01 approved, but it didn't cause a bad report. Was your fuel mileage better this time using this oil?

A 5 to 1 or a 4 to 2 of darn near anything is ok. Keep in mind that you need to stay close in viscosity to what your engine specs. Mix away my friend. I am slowly recruiting more to the darkside.
