The quick/easy answer: Use Stihl (or comparable) two-stroke engine oil at 40:1. A good name brand gas is less likely to gunk up your engine.
The old manual recommended Castrol SAE 40 mixed at 20:1 with regular gas.
All the modern Stihl chainsaw manuals recommend using 90+ octane unleaded gasoline mixed with Stihl two-stroke engine oil at a 50:1.
Since this is an older saw that runs at a lower RPM than modern saws, you probably don't want to run it quite as lean as 50:1. 40:1 is going to be about the right mix
If you want a printed manual for your chainsaw, you can request one here.
Chainsaw collectors corner has some other useful specs here.

SOURCE: chainsaw gas/oil mix ratio
I have two Stihls that are well over 20 years old. I use the factory recommended mixture, 1 part 2 cycle Stihl oil to regular gas. (1:50)
That is still what the factory recommends. Don't use a cheap 2 cycle oil, go to a Stihl store and buy their 2 cycle oil in the orange plastic bottle.

Stihl chainsaws are 1:50 oil to gas ratio. Make sure you use good high-quality 2-stroke oil, preferably that which is made by Stihl.
