SOURCE: I just purchased a Stihl 041AV chainsaw and need

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.

Background:
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.

If this answer was useful, please give it a vote! Thanks.

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.

SOURCE: need to know the oil to gas ratio for a 056 stihl

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.

Have a stihl MS180 and it is not pumping any oil out of the hole and slot that makes contact with the bar. How do you remove the oil pump?


To remove the oil pump you need the following:
Assembly tool 1123 890 2200 Removing oil pump Puller 1130 893 1400 Installer 1130 893 1500
I would recommend trying to clean out the oiler first.
Please comment on this and tell us what type of oil you were using. There are rumors of wrong oil clogging or wearing the oilers. Was it used motor oil? Thanks Joe
