What type of petrol do I get for the chainsaw


What make and model of chainsaw do you have?

Chainsaws take the same gas you put in your vehicles, however the gas must be mixed with 2 cycle oil. The ratio of gas and oil depends on the make and model.

Reply back and I will look up the gas/oil ratio for you.

Thanks,

Ratio for gas mixture


The ratio is 40:1. Use good quality 2 stroke oil, preferably Husqvarna, not the type you can get at car service stations as the cheaper oil will cause the engine to wear more quickly.

Oil & gas ratio for an older Craftsman chainsaw?


Unless the saw is over 40 years old, 40:1 ratio will work well. Really old saws required 30/32:1 ratios when petroleum based oils were used. Be sure to premix the fuel and a modern synthetic saw oil in it's own can and be sure to shake thoroughly just before refueling each time. Check the H jet setting by warming the engine up, then pull the throttle full on. Proper adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes running free, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Be sure to check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging before making any jet adjustment. Hope this helps!

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 need to know the gas mixture ratio for a craftsman weedwacker


Hello mcguilmd:

>>All Two Stroke Engines will use a 50 to 1 Ratio using Today's Two Stroke Oils. I once had an Old Chainsaw probably from the 1950s, maybe Earlier 70s that had a sticker on it that said to use a 25 to 1 Fuel/Oil Ratio, but that would have been using Two Stroke Oils of the Time Period the Chainsaw was Manufactured. I was having a Problem with Oil Coming Out of the Muffler and Started Decreasing the Oil in the Gas. I Reduced the Oil Until it was a t a 45:1 Ratio and Decided to be Safe, I would Use a 40:1 Ratio Mix. In that Chainsaw I used 50 to 1 Ratio with no problems. Today's Two Stroke Oils compared to Yesteryears are more Efficient at Lubricating. It is like comparing Today's Synthetic Motor Oil to Motor Oils of Decades ago. All the Equipment I use in Landscaping, anything from a Weed Eater, Leaf Blower, Chainsaw, Hedge Trimmer, use 40 to 1 ratio, and I use all types of makes and models, Stihl, Homelite, Husqvarna, Shindaiwa, and Echo, Sears. I mix up a 5 Gallon Fuel can and use it in all of the Equipment for my Customers and for my Landscaping. I like my Fuel/Oil Ratio a Little Heavy, so I use a 40:1 Ratio. The Following was Copied and Pasted here from and MTD E-mail to me when I Asked for the OEMs Suggested Mixture for this Unit. The mixture, as described by the engine manufacturer, is a 50:1 ratio when using the approved types of 2-cycle engine oils.
50:1 ratio is a mix consisting of 2.5 ounces of 2-cycle oil per 1 gallon of gasoline.
The 2-cycle oil used should be approved and have one or more of the following specification titles: NMMA TC-WII, TC-W3, JASO FB, or JASO FC. NOTE: If unsure of the 2-cycle oil specifications, or the oil is not approved, use a 32:1 fuel to oil ratio. This ratio consists of 4 ounces of oil per one gallon of fuel.
NOTE: Always mix 2-cycle fuel oil and fuel in an approved gasoline safe container prior to filling the engine. Make sure to use a separate gas can for this 2-cycle fuel mixture and label it accordingly. Keep in mind that the fuel capacity of these engines normally is less than a gallon, therefore you will have to use this extra oil mixture for multiple fuel fills. Adding a fuel stabilizer will also help to increase the shelf life of fuel.
>>I Suggest Using a 40:1 Ratio and if Oil Starts Coming Out the Muffler then go to a 50:1 Ratio.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
