SOURCE: i need to know a fuel oil ratio.

Regardless of what the manual says once adjusted your saw will perform better with this mix.
Do you need bar oil? Available at any Hardware or Home Center.
Fuel/Oil Mixture

  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL suppliers recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

SOURCE: Ineed to know what the fuel to oil ratio is for

Run 30:1 or 32:1. With modern synthetic oils, you could probably get along with 40:1 without trouble (and a lot less smoke). Good luck!

I have an 04 husky cr 125 and the fuel ratio i had is 32-1 and it fouled on me! i just go around the yard but sometimes on trails. should i go to a 40-1 ratio? or a 50-1 ratio?

Some guys will tell you to go to 50-1. Don't. 40-1 would be okay. If that doesn't stop the fouling, go to a hotter spark plug. An example would be BR8ES to BR7ES. The lower the number, the hotter the plug. By the way, you ARE using two stroke ENGINE oil and not MOTOR oil aren't you??? Please rate my answer.

What motor oil do i use for my 2005 CR125 honda

You need to use a 2 stroke motor oil. Look for oils that say 2 stroke motorcycle oil, injector oil or smokeless. Do not use a standard automotive motor oil, your bike will smoke. It should be pre-mixed with your gasoline. I am relatively sure the ratio is 32:1, but you should check your owners manual to be sure. At this ratio you would use 4 ounces of oil to each gallon of gas. This ratio allows for an all-around use of your bike. If you are not going to use the bike at high speeds for extended periods, you may want to consider a different fuel/gas ratio - 50:1.

The above information is recommended for a Stock motorcycle.

Model PM374 mixture ratio please

Hello George:
I cannot find an OM for your saw. I did find 3 IPLs the oldest being 1993. I have 2 McCulloch (1983 & 87) saws both older than yours and their OMs recommend the current mix ratio of 40:1
Oil Mix Ratio:
The following ratios have been recommended for the last 10-15 years.
Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
McCulloch, Poulan & Wen; recommend 40:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 100 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
Chinese chainsaws recommend 25:1.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.
Thank You for using FixYa.

The bike uses around 600ml of gear oil, but you should always check the level at the level bolt. When the bolt is removed, fill oil until it flows out the level hole. Replace bolt. Run the motor briefly and then inspect the level again. Add more oil if needed. Use BelRay trans oil 10w80.

The fuel mix should be 3.5 percent oil to unleaded fuel.
If you are not racing, mix 30:1
Always use a good fully synthetic oil
