50:1 sounds right you want to have enough oil to see smoke this means that the piston is getting oil if you don't see smoke if it isn't smoking there isn't enough oil an it will run hot an not have full power it is better to have to much oil then not enough up to a certian point to much oil an you willn't have full power

What is the gas and oil mixture ratio


Hi, McCulloch chain saws have different mixtures depending on whether you use their brand or generic and is also dependent on the model. The three mixes are 32:1, 40:1 or 50:1. If you are unsure, use the 40:1 and watch the smoke, too much smoke use less mix, but don't run with too little. If you see any coming from the exhaust it is too much and can't burn it all. Good Luck, hope this Fixsya!
