In the compartment closest to the chainsaw bar, you need to fill this with chain and bar oil. Any good name brand will work fine.

In the other compartment you need to add a mix of petrol and oil in the ratio specified for your saw. If unsure, 25:1 petrol/oil ratio should be ok.

Have a poulan wild thing and the oil bar compartment has gas in it


I would drain the oil and gas or whatever is in it. I would also drain the 2 cycle mix from the gas tank and start with a fresh gas and oil mix and fresh bar oil. The mix for the Poulan Wildthing is a 40:1 mix.

You are definitely going to smell gas when using any chain saw.

What type of GAS and OIL need for the chain saw?


Hi gjoun...
You will need "Chain and Bar" oil to lube the chain and bar. Special oil made just to lubricate the chain and bar as the chain is running.
For the engine you can use the low grade of gasoline...and 2 cycle oil.
Fuel mix...50 to 1 = 1pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.
Please take time to rate me

I have a HOMELITE XL-12 chain saw. Web sites say it takes a mix of oil and gas. But mine has a place to put oil in. Which should I do?.


The mix of oil and gas should be a 32:1 ratio which is 4 oz. of oil to every gallon of gas. I am assuming that what you are seeing is the oil tank for the bar oil. You need to use bar and chain oil for this tank as it is what keeps the chain lubricated. Do not use two cycle oil for the tank marked oil.

Need gas/oil mix for Homelite 330 10604A, HJ


To the best of my recollection the 330 is an older model saw and should be running about a 16:1 ratio. 8oz. of oil to 1 gallon of fuel. Hope this helps.

Note: You're always better being a bit richer (lower ratio) than you are leaner (higher ratio).

Need fuel mixture specs


50:1 is the fuel to oil ratio using a modern synthetic saw oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Be sure to mix the fuel and oil in it's own container, and to shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

Just got a homelite 33cc 14 inch chain saw, do you mix gas and oil on this chain saw?


Yes you do! The ratio is 50:1 fuel to oil. Be sure to use a modern synthetic saw oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Be sure to use fresh fuel and mix the two in it's own container. Be sure to shake the container thoroughly each time just before refueling to prevent oil starvation in the engine. Don't make up more than one gallon at a time unless sawing is your business. Hope this helps!

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!

I need to know the oil & gas mix ratio and what weight oil for the mix


On the container of 2 cycle oil you buy, it will have a mixing chart. 50:1 (means 50 parts of gas to 1 part of oil) usually uses around 4 ounces of 2 cycle oil to each gallon of gasoline. The other compartment is for bar & chain oil, that is what lubricates the bar & chain.

Correct mix of gas and oil for Chain Saw


The ratio is 40:1, provided this is a gasoline homelite chainsaw. Find the suitable amount to put into the gas can at a ratio of 3.2 oz per gallon. The bottles that you buy the oil in have marks on them telling you how much there is, and often times, are sized to dump into a preset amount of gas. Put the oil in the can, then put the gas in the can, cap, and shake. Always shake before dispensing.

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!
