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!

What is the gas / oil ratio mixture for husqvarna 455 rancher model ?


50:1 that's 2.6 ounces of 2-stroke oil (preferably with fuel stabilizer) to one gallon of gas. I recommend using 89 octane gasoline for all small engines. It has little or no ethanol in it, as opposed to the 10% typical in 87 or 86 octane fuel. This will prevent a lot of fuel issues, especially if you are not using the tool daily or at least weekly.

Need gas and oil mixture ratio


The gas oil ratio on all Poulan models is 40:1.
First, I recommend a synthetic oil mix if you can find it and also recommend running a 93 octane gasoline.
Second, I would mix no more than 1 gallon at a time, unless you are doing a lot of cutting.
Gas/Oil mixtures do not last that long. I don't give them more than a month, and generally try to run any mixture within 2 weeks.
Think about it, gas cam gum up on it's own when let sitting for too long. Imagine what it can do with oil mixed in it.
Good luck with your saw, and be careful when cutting.

What is the ratio of gas to oil for a 35cc engine


Mix 3.2 ounces of Poulan 2-cycle air cooled engine oil to one gallon of fresh unleaded gasoline to obtain the recommended 40:1 fuel to oil ratio.
Over a period of time oil will separate from gasoline. To properly insure oil and gas mixture, I recommend thoroughly shaking your oil and gas mixture before refueling your unit.
If the saw is to be stored for longer than 30 days - drain the fuel tank, re-tighten the gas cap, and start the unit and let it run until it stops.

What kind of gasoline?


  1. Check your manual for the proper gas-and-oil mixture. For almost all modern two-stroke engines, a 50-to-1 mixture is recommended. That requires about 2 1/2 oz. oil for every gallon of gasoline.


  2. Use only two-cycle oil for your mixture. This oil is made especially for these engines and can be purchased at gas stations, hardware stores or any other place where you buy regular motor oil.


  3. Pour the proper amounts of gas and oil into a fuel can. Shake the can well to mix it.


  4. Label your gas can with the mixture ratio. You can use the same mixture for other two-stroke engines.


  5. Shake your fuel can thoroughly every time you refuel. After a while, the oil will settle out of the gas, and shaking it up ensures that the oil and gas are properly mixed again before you put the fuel into your chainsaw.
