You just fill it to the top, it is for lubricating the chain and bar. For the engine you must use gas premixed with 2-stroke oil for chainsaws in the correct mix.

I strongly advise you to try to find a manual for the saw and study it carefully. Gas-powered chain saws are one of the most dangerous tools you could have in your hands and requires knowledge about how it works, how to operate it safely, how it should be adjusted and serviced, how to determine if the safety systems are functioning, what safety gear you must have etc.

I lost the owners manual and wondered if i had to add oil to the gasoline

Yes, you do have to add oil to the gasoline. All two-cycle engines must have oil added to the Gasoline, unless they have an oil injector, and chainsaws do not have an oil injector.

While you do not mention the make of your chainsaw, most modern saws use a fifty to one mix.
Older ones typically used a 25 to one mix, and very old ones used a 16 to 1 mix.
A thirty to one mix will work just fine, since you do not have a manual for your saw, and therefore do not know what the particular manufacturer recommends. You may be able to find out
what your saw takes on the Web, or, maybe from wherever you bought your saw.

Just follow the directions found on the bottle of quality Two-Cycle oil, and add the oil to the gas can.
Do NOT add the oil to the saws tank. You must mix the oil/gas first in a can, THEN fill up your saw.

I bought a used McCullogh chainsaw and don't have a manual. Am trying to find out the oil-gas ratio.

most modern, light duty chainsaws use 50:1 gas:oil mixture (2.5 oz oil to 1 gal gas)

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.

Need to know gas oil ratio on poulan micro xxv deluxe

Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

No manual for Remington electric chainsaw. What oil do I use?

Here is a link to the owner's manual you requested... This one should work for you. According to the manufacturer, Use SAE 30 motor oil for best results. (For temperatures below 30° F, use SAE 10. For temperatures above 75° F, use SAE 40.) DO NOT use Bar & Chain oil. If you have additional questions you may want to contact Master Distributors at 800-446-1446. I hope this helps!

I dont have the manual and Im not sure what ype of oil I should put on this chain saw. On the left The nob sais oil (which kind?) and on the right side it sais oil/gas mix (which kind?) what do i put on...

The Left knob needs chain oil. Available in most hardware stores. The right is gas mixed with 2 stroke motor oil. Usually a 50:1 mix. Ie. 50 parts gas to 1 part oil. 2 stroke oil comes with a built in measuring tool and directions printed on the bottle.
