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.

SOURCE: Chain saw starts with starting fluid only but will not run.

Hi lwhssh:
Suggest you drain the fresh gas/oil and add a fresh batch but first add a gas stabilizer to your batch of gas/oil in the storage container. You will probably still need to use starting fluid for a few times When 2 cycle engines sit for a long period of time, the gas/oil mixture undergoes a change and tends to leave a residue on the delicate parts of the carb. The gas stabilizer will help that.

I always do the following for 2 cycle engines when I put them up for the winter. Empty the gas container on the device and then start it to use up any gas left in the fuel lines and carb. this keeps any residue from forming.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS please leave a rating if appropriate. Thanks

SOURCE: husqvarna 40 chain saw

This happens for two reasons. First of all, take off the chain and the bar and clean it all up as saw dust may be the culprit. The other reason is that some chain oils are too thick. you can thin it down a little bit by adding a little kerosene or gasoline.

Oil,gas mixture for a McCulloch 610 chain saw


Always use good quaility two stroke oil designed for use in chainsaws ( not out board motors ) and mix at 40-1, oil quaility has moved on greatly so it is acceptable to use less oil than was once needed.

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:

No problem; using a borrowed Husqvarna 44-don't know fuel mixtures (if any). The chamber for "oil"-is that engine oil (if so, what do you recommend) or chain saw oil (if not, is there another...


The mix fuel mix is 40:1. Use Husqvarna 2 stroke oil not the cheap stuff on sale at car service stations. The chamber for oil is for chain oil which can be bought at most places that sell or hire machinery like chainsaws, lawnmowers etc.
