SOURCE: what is the gas and oil mixture ratio

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!

My mom has Husq 125BT backpack leaf blower, the blower runs ok once it gets started but after about 15 minutes it shuts off and is extremely hot, what causes that and what do i need to do to fix it?

sounds as though she is not using the correct oil to gas mixture OR she is using two cycle oil that is for outboard engines not air cooled engines.

I added 0.4 oz of oil to 1/2 gallon of gas too much to mixture. How can I dilute the mixture without starting over?

??? Take a gallon gas can, pour the I/2 gallon oil/gas mixture into it and then add the correct amount of undiluted gasoline to the correct mixture. For instance, if you need a .2 oz/I/2 gal ratio then add 1/2 gal gas to what you already have. Remember, it is always better to have a little too much oil than gas.

I have a husq/136 chain saw 2002 replaced oil ppump and pich up tube it still pumps to much oil on chain

this can happen when the two plates are missing that go on each side of the blade, or there is a oil adjust screw that controls output of oil, but lots of oil is a good thing as long as it last a tank of gas, if not it can be a bad thing !

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.

I am borrowing my friends brand new Husqvarna 142 which has never been used and she cannot find her owner's manual. What is the oil to gas ratio?

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.
