I have a Stihl FS 45 and have had problems with it running for a short time then cutting out. The problem is like to be either- the filter attached to end end of the fuel pick hose that goes down into the fuel tank is blocked or- there is a crackor split in the corrugated section of the fuel pick up hose between the fuel tank and the carburettor. If such a crack or split exists it will cause air to be sucked in with the fuel upsetting the fuel/air ratio. A new hose not adjustment is the only cure

I took mine back to Bunnings and the guy there said they had a number with this problem and have found that priming the bulb 20 times not 10 as per the manual, is the fix.
It certainly fixed mine

Testimonial: "Thanks, will try it!!!"
May have a screen in the exhaust that has plugged up with carbon. You can take the screen out and it will run properly if that is the problem. Otherwise, it could need a carburetor cleaning. If you are going to rebuild the carburetor, you probably should get a carburetor rebuild kit from a small engine repair center for your particular model.

We only have unleaded here in the US, so use that and I recommend using any "synthetic" type of 2-Stroke oil. It is far superior to regular 2-stroke oil and helps your machine live longer.
