Fuel Mixtures?

I was wondering if my line trimmer takes a 40:1 mixture and my blower takes a 50:1 can i use the same 40:1 fuel mix on both the trimmer and blower? or do i have to mix 2 different cans of 40 and 50.

I use 50 to 1 in all the 2 stroke stuff, no matter what the individual pieces call for.

The machine doesn't know the difference.

My own procedure which is time tested and works 100% for me in all my 2 cycle stuff is AMSOIL SYNTHETIC 2 cycle oil mixed at 80:1.

Never once had an engine problem. No excessive smoke, cleaner burning, higher power, no clogged screens or plugs.
I use it in Lawn Boy 6.5hp wb, trimmer, BR600 and EBZ8000 and Stihl chainsaw. Just took a Husky 140b blower out to upgrade to Stihl but the Husky still runs strong after 10 years.
Graduated marks on the bottle, easy to mix. No I am not a dealer, just telling you what works for me. Have a great weekend.
