Question about Garden
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.

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

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.
