What is the gas/oil mixture for the poulan wild thing chain saw please?


Use a quality 2-cycle air-cooled engine oil. Poulan recommends a good quality 2-cycle air-cooled oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 40:1 (A 40:1 ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 onces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline). When mixing fuel, follow the instructions printed on the container. Always read and follow the safety rules relating to fuel before fueling your unit.. Be Safe!

I bought a reconditioned Poulan pro PP4629AVX and I can't find a manual for it. What is the oil to gas mixture? Thanks Steve


The fuel-oil mixture ratio for all Poulan two-cycle products is 40:1. You can obtain this ratio by mixing 3.2 oz. of oil with one gallon of regular gas.

Fuel mix ratio for poulan counter vibe 3400 chain saw; mix ratio


A different site that lists 40:1. http://www.acresinternet.com/cscc.nsf/ed1d619968136da688256af40002b8f7/4a98e23d38cbda9b88256bf80015de57?OpenDocument
Oil mix is controversial. Some think more is better, todays saws run much faster and carbon up much quicker. Ask the mechanics at a local saw shop. I will wager they say 50:1 regardless of the age of the saw. Me too! The Echo site now says use 50:1 regardless of what is printed in the OM. It is your saw Mike; run what you want.

Fuel mix ratio for poulan counter vibe 3400 chain saw and for a homelite st-145 weed trimmer


Oil Mix Ratio: (last 5-10 years)
Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
McCulloch, Poulan & Wen; recommend 40:1.
1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
4 liters of premium fuel to 100 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
Chinese chainsaws recommend 25:1.

If me I would have the Poulan tweaked to run properly on 50:1 and use that in both. It will start easier and take much longer to carbon foul.

I use 50:1 in everything.
Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL suppliers recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

I would like the fuel mixture for my poulan chain saw. %oil,%fuel


If you don't know the model, then go with a 35:1 or 40:1 ratio. 40:1 seems common on most smaller saws from Ryobi and Poulan is a relation to those. The 35:1 suggestion is just for a little buffer in case. Generally it is ok to run a richer oil mix. It just means you may have to change spark plugs more often, however, your combustion chambers will be better lubricated and probably last longer!

Sometimes there is a little sticker or marking on the fuel tank cap or somewhere near it that indicates advisable oil:fuel ratio... Have a close look, it may be indicated somewhere on the saw itself.
