That should be a 50:1 gas to oil ratio. Just make should the measurements are concise, and that your fuel mixture is well mixed. If anything you,d prefer to err on the side of a little tto much oil rather than not enough.

If it is brand new, I'd suggest runninit at about half speed for a minute or three, then moving on up to about 3/4 for another minute.

When you go to cut, rev the engine up to a fairly high speed before putting the saw to the wood. In most cases, you want to let the weight of the saw do most of the cutting, versus bearing down on the sae. Yhat puts undue strain on it, sepecially for a used saw. Try not to allow the saw to "bog" down, so the engine speed drops considerably while cutting.

How much oil do I use per 1gallon of gas for a Husqvarna 223L weed eater?

for a 40/1 mixture use 3 ounces of oil ( 2 stroke) to a gallon of gas for a 50/1 ( which is what I recommend ) its 2.5 ounces to each gallon of gas, if you find that the machine is smoking a little too much,, back up on the oil just a hair,, but I don't think you'll need to

Need gas/oil ratio for Husky 350. Thanks

50:1 is the correct ratio. Be sure to shake the fuel can just before filling each time to prevent oil starvation. Don't make up more than a gallon at a time unless sawing is your business. Always use fresh fuel and a modern synthetic saw oil. Hope this helps!

What is the gas oil ratio for the Husqvarna 130BT

The ratio is 50:1. Use a good quality 2 cycle oil for mowers and equipment, not for boat motors. You can probably buy a bottle for the 50:1 ratio with just the right amount of oil. Look for a bottle with 2.6 oz. That is the correct one. You can use either regular oil or synthetic oil.

If you need an owners manual, go to and look for the homeowners manuals. Search for yours with a space between the 130 and BT( 130 BT )
