SOURCE: I have a 240 Homelite chainsaw and need to know

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 3 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

SOURCE: 18"poulan chainsaw

Start at 1.5 CCW form lightly seated then tune for performance like this:
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

I think your starting procedure may be the cause of flooding. Flooded is the #1 cause of hard starts in 2-cycle engines. Read carefully the recommended start in your manual. most miss the second note. It should be similar to this (read 3, read it again):
Warm start in the manual says 1/2 choke BS. Close choke, (sets fast idle) open choke, pull rope.
Start Procedure
Cold:

  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts (usually first pull).
If you still have trouble reply as you did before. I will get back to you. HTH

What is fuel mixture for solo motosage 60135


Some say 100:1 with synthetics. I use synthetics on 80cc and larger saws in the range of 40/50:1. I never go higher than that....saws are just too expensive to be stepping over dollars to pick up pennies. A lot of people are trying to make mixing ratios like some kind of mystery voodoo. You'll always be fine in the 40/50:1 range with a good synthetic oil.

What is the correct fuel/oil mixture for an older Eager ****** 16 inch chain saw?


It really depends on the model number of your Eager Beav er unit. Anything within the last 6 years is 50 to 1 older models can be anywhere from 25 to 1, to 32 - 1 up to 40 - 1. t all depends on the model number.

The usual fuel mixture is 40 - 1 or 3.2 oz. per gallon.

Your chain saw would have to be pre-1995 to use a mixture greater than 40-1. If your chain saw is other than that then use a 32 - 1 ratio. 4.oz per gal.

This is a great fuel mixture calculator:

If you know your model number you can use this page to get an owners / operators manual:

Does this take straight gas?


Your saw most likely requires a gas/oil mixture. a 1:50 mixture (1 part oil to 50 parts gasoline) is common among newer saws. Some older saws (20 years or more) require a richer mixture, commonly 1:40. I recommend you consult the users manual for the saw.

Hope this helps.

Is the oil gas mixture 32 to 1 standard on all chainsaws i have a mini mac 130


Only McCulloch and Poulan recommend 40:1. All professional grade saws except Chinese (25:1) recommend 50:1 or 1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil. All saws, once adjusted for 50:1, (maybe not Chinese) start easier, are less likely to carbon foul, and allow your grandchildren to breath easier.

Does it run on 30 weight oil or a mixture of gas and oil?


It is an electric chainsaw, you need bar oil. Your manual says use 30 weight non-detergent. That is what bar oil is, with a few additives to help keep it on the bar and chain. It can be purchased at home centers and hardware stores and is less expensive than most motor oils. HTH
