You mix it yourself. Just use a good multi-mix fuel oil that way you don't need the exact ratio as you use as directed on the bottle or package.

What is the gas/2 cycle oil mixtuure for a husqvarna 55 chainsaw


These saws were normally ran on a slightly richer mix. The reason was becuase of the mix oil available. I would recommend running a 40:1 or 50:1 mix. Make sure you use an "FD" rated mix oil and Premium ethanol free fuel.
The premixed fuels / oils are even better. They contain the FD rated oil 95 octane fuel and no ethanol.

What is the mix for my Homelite 16" 33cc chainsaw?


50:1 is the fuel to oil ratio. Never use petroleum oil (engine or boat motor oil). Always use a synthetic saw oil available from home centers, hardware stores and saw dealers. The bottles are usually graduated to various ratios for a gallon of fresh gas. Always premix in it's own container and shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Be sure to use bar/chain oil for the chain as well, and keep the chain sharp and well adjusted. Hope this helps!

What gas to oil mix


50:1 is the proper ratio. Be sure to premix in it's own can using a modern synthetic oil made for saws and shake thoroughly just before filling the saw each time. At these lean lubrication levels, proper mixing is essential for long engine life. Hope this helps!

Gas oil mixture


The header says that it is an electric saw which would only require bar oil. A 2-stroke gas engine, however, does require fuel mixed with a modern saw oil at 40:1 ratio plus bar/chain oil in it's own tank as well. Always premix the fuel and oil in a separate can and shake well even before filling the saw. Hope this helps!

Always premix fuel and a modern synthetic saw oil in a separate can before use. Never run a 2-stroke saw engine without mixed fuel. Motorcycles use an oil injection pump that allows the burning of straight gasoline, but no one has come up with similar system for saws. Use 40:1 ratio fuel to oil. Hope this helps!

Petrol and oil


If the saw in not over 30 years old, it should be safe to use 40:1 fuel to oil mix providing that you use a modern synthetic saw oil. Don't use boat motor oil or other petroleum based oils. Premix them very well in the saw's own fuel can and agitate the can before each use. Regular chain/bar oil is used in the oil tank. Good luck!

Gas ratio


Most saws built within the last 30 years or so can be run with 40:1 using modern synthetic saw oils. A number of late model units run 50:1. Make sure to premix the fuel and oil before adding to the saw. Hope this helps!

I have a 3300 homelite chainsaw 16'bar,what is the oil,gas ratio?


This should run well with 40:1 ratio using modern synthetic saw oils only. Always premix the fuel and oil in a can before adding to the saw, then agitate the saw to mix the old with the new. Hope this helps!

Just bought a ut10830 chainsaw no/owners manual- how much oil /pi


You just fill it to the top, it is for lubricating the chain and bar. For the engine you must use gas premixed with 2-stroke oil for chainsaws in the correct mix.

I strongly advise you to try to find a manual for the saw and study it carefully. Gas-powered chain saws are one of the most dangerous tools you could have in your hands and requires knowledge about how it works, how to operate it safely, how it should be adjusted and serviced, how to determine if the safety systems are functioning, what safety gear you must have etc.
