I had the same problem! I found that the needle valve in the carb was not shutting off the fuel flow when not running. Either replace needle valve or put a shut off valve in the fule line. Should take care of the problem

I'd like to be able to tell you, but without the Model # of your machine, I'm unable to do so accurately. It should tell in your manual what the ratio is.

Good Luck!

What is the fuel mix for 14 inch chain saw csp3314

it depends on the make but sthil now have a oil that is suitable for all mix ratios up to 50:1
you can start at 20:1 and run the engine
if the exhaust is very smoky , change it to 40:1 and again check the smoke
50: 1 is thinnest oil ration for all engines
The ratio is correct when you can just see smoke when at revs
you can always google and type in--- oil/fuel ratio for ( make ) chainsaw model csp3314---or possible look at the filler cap as the ratio is commonly printed in the plastic cap

On a gas chain saw, do you mix the gas

there is usually a fuel/oil ratio (i think yours is 50:1) you must buy the 2 cycle oil and mix it with gas at the ratio reccommended by the manufacture. the bottle may say 6 oz per 1 gallon = 50:1 So 1 bottle of 2 cycle oil for every gallon of gas. mix them in a proper fuel can. then let the cutting begin.

What is the oil to gas mixing ratio for a poulan SM 4018 Pro chain saw?

The ratio is 50:1 fuel to oil using fresh fuel and a modern synthetic saw oil available from home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Be sure to mix in it's own container, and shake thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

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!

What is the oil mixture for husqvarna chain model 235

50:1 fuel to oil ratio is correct for this saw. Be sure to use modern synthetic saw oil, not a petroleum product like outboard motor oil. Premix the fuel and oil in it's own can, and shake thoroughly just before filling the saw each time. With these modern fuel/oil ratios, serious engine damage can occur if not thoroughly mixed each time. Hope this helps!

I need to know the proper gas oil mix for the 42cc engine

50:1 is the correct fuel to oil ratio. Be sure to use a modern synthetic oil made for chain saws, and premix the fuel and oil in it's own can-- shake the can thoroughly just before filling the saw each time. With the very lean fuel to oil ratios used today, it is important to keep the oil in suspension to prevent engine damage. Hope this helps!

Mcculloch 310 oil mix ratio

The proper gas/oil ratio is 50:1, that is 50 parts gas, to one part (2) cycle oil.

If you plan on leaving gas in the tank when not being used, I always recommend adding some gas stabilizer, such as Sta-bil, which makes starting the chain saw easier regardless of how long the fuel mix has been sitting in the tank or saw (up to 2 years according to Sta-bil label)

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
