Question about Husqvarna 450 e-series 18" Chain Saw
There seems to be a "drain plug" in the bottom of the oil tank. It is a grey plastic. Does it screw in?
The grey plug in the base of the oil tank is the oil filter it will twist 1/4 turn and pull out, to replace push back in and turn 1/4 turn there is a leg on it that locks into the orange tank, there is a screw driver slot in it to assist this, they can be really tight try not to force too much or you will break it.

The hose is leaking. You will have to replace the hose. You do not have to disassemble the saw in half as many seem to think. Just some of the parts that are in the way. You can insert a wire and pull the hose out from the oil tank along with the filter. It goes in and you remove only the parts that are in the way where the hose comes out.

SOURCE: Bar oil leaking
I think it is quite normal to have some oil leakage in chainsaws, some oils are lighter than others and may cause more leaking. My saws always leaks a little while sitting on the shelf. If it bothers you an easy solution is to remove oil & gas before storing. Maybe storing it lying on its side also helps. Good luck!
