Hi, Most chainsaws use three mixes, which are 32:1, 40:1 or 50:1. Most are labeled somewhere on the saw. 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, it is supposed to smoke some. If you see any oil 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 for this chainsaw? Is synthetic oil okay to use in it?


Generally 2 stroke engines work on a ratio of 50:1
100ml of 2 stroke oil in 5L of petrol.
Use good quality 2 stroke engine oil for the mixture, Stihl and Husqvarna both have high quality engine oils, designed for more efficient lubrication and emissions quality.

What type of petrol do I get for the chainsaw


What make and model of chainsaw do you have?

Chainsaws take the same gas you put in your vehicles, however the gas must be mixed with 2 cycle oil. The ratio of gas and oil depends on the make and model.

Reply back and I will look up the gas/oil ratio for you.

Thanks,

I inherited a Rancher 50 20" chainsaw from my uncle only noone know the oil gas mixture.


using good quality 2 stroke oil use ratio 50:1

that is 20 mils of oil per 1 litre of petrol that you mix

put oil in can 1st then add petrol and give good shake

so if mixing 5 litres pour in 100 mils of 2 stroke oil and add 5 litres of fuel only

cheers hope it helps

What is th petrol and oil ratio for a homelite petrol chainsaw 33c- csp 3314


Generally you're looking at a 50:1 ratio on most chainsaws and I wouldn't see any reason the homelite should be any different. Usually it's one 2.5oz container of the oil mixture to one gallon of gasoline but check the label to be sure.

Homelite chain saw --first time user--do you mix oil and gas--two compartments--is the first compartment for bar oil


In the compartment closest to the chainsaw bar, you need to fill this with chain and bar oil. Any good name brand will work fine.

In the other compartment you need to add a mix of petrol and oil in the ratio specified for your saw. If unsure, 25:1 petrol/oil ratio should be ok.

Need to know the correct levels of oils in a chainsaw


Most McCulloch saws use a 40:1 oil ratio if using McCulloch branded 2-stroke oil. They state 20:1 for other oils, but this is probably overkill as most name branded 2-stroke oils these days are pretty good. I would probably go for a 30:1 or 35:1 mix to err on the side of caution. This will not affect performance, it may just mean you need to change spark plugs a little earlier than usual, but the cylinders will at least be well lubricated.

Please rate my response on FixYa.
