The owners manuals for all Husqvarna products in the US call for a 50:1 fuel ratio. That being said, there are lots of opinions out there... Some believe that extra oil is good protection and promotes longevity of the machine. Some of the confusion may come from the fact that Husky equipment is distributed world wide and some countries specify a more oily mix like 40:1 or even 33:1. A support person explained it to me that different countries have different grades and quality of fuel... If you don't mind a little more smoke and maybe shorter plug life a little extra oil won't hurt, but you may not get maximum power from the device.

Fuel mixture Z830sd Homelite trimmer


Since my research shows this to be an older unit, I recommend a 40:1 mix. That is 3.2 ounces of 2 stroke oil / gallon of gas, or 1.6 ounces of oil in half-a-gallon of gas. Here is a mixture chart.

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:

Need to know the gas and oil mixture for a Homelite 2 cycle weed wacker


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.

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.

Do not know what mixture or how to use


40:1 mixture for the fuel:oil ratio.16:1 will cause your saw to barely run(if at all) and if it does, will fog out every mosquito for 4 blocks. You can use any reputable 2-stroke oil, though stay away from outboard engine oil. Get the good stuff that says Stihl, or Husquavarnah, or something like that. Even the Homelite stuff is ok. The oil tank takes regular bar and chain oil.

I have inherited my dad's Echo chainsaw - CS-3900, but not the manual. My question is simple - how do I know if I should use a 50:1 or 32:1 oil to gas mixture?


Oil to gas mixture is more a function of the oil than the saw. If you use high quality oil like Echo brand, (or Stihl or Husqvarna) you'll be fine at 50:1. If the saw is older than 15 or so years you'd be a little safer running 32:1. It'll just smoke a little more at 32:1. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
