Buy a good quality oil and mix it to the OIL manufacturers recommendation regardless of what the chainsaw manual says. If you are poking around the barn and find an old can of Homelite 2 cycle oil that says mix 25:1 mix it at that ratio.
All modern oils, chainsaws, and the EPA recommend 50:1. There has been great improvement in 2 cycle technology over the years. To rich a mix causes carbon build up on the piston that breaks loose and scores the piston and cylinder, and it stinks!

Oil mix ratio for homelite chainsaw


Current models recommend 50:1
1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil. Once adjusted for this mix your saw will start easier, take longer to carbon foul, and is better for your grandchildren, regardless of what your manual says.

I have a 240 Homelite chainsaw and need to know what mixture to make the gas 50:1 40:1 what?


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

My redmax eb7001 emits white smoke while running, the more power...the more smoke


Your fuel-oil mixture has too much oil in it. The standard ratio is 40:1 which means one of the little bottles of 2-stroke oil (about 2.6 fluid ounces) is added to 1 gallon of gas. Homelite recommends a 50:1 ratio but 40:1 is better, at least in my opinion.

The last time you made the mix, did you pour the oil into the gas or did you pour the oil into a little bit of gas in the gas can, shake well and then fill it with a gallon of gas? The former can give you lots of smoke as well because it is not mixed thoroughly. The latter is the best way to mix because the agitation and the flow of gas mixes the oil better.

Other possible causes to this problem are: how old is the mix you are using? Did this mix sit all winter last and you sre using it now? If so, did you add some Stabil to the mix before storing?

Depending on your answers to the above questions, you can determine why you are getting so much white smoke.

My recommendation to you is to:
(a) Empty the blower gas tank.
(b) Mix a fresh batch of oil and gas in an approved fuel container.
(c) Pull the spark plug and inspect it, if it is black/sooty replace it.
(d) Pour the new mix into the tank and start the blower.

This should get rid of the excess smoke, if it doesn't, let me know here. Good Luck!

What fuel does the csp 3314 use? I bought this chainsaw second hand and i am unsure what fuel to put in it. Thanks in advance for any assistance Kelly


You need to mix 3.2 oz of 2 cycle oil to 1 gallon of gas. Some may disagree but a 40:1 ratio is better than a 50:1 mix. It gives more oil in the mix to keep the cylinder/piston lubricated. Any less and you will burn up the engine. With this new mixture you may need to get a professional to readjust the carburetor to this new mix.
