This is often a matter of opinion. I use 32:1, others 40:1 or 50:1.

SOURCE: what is the correct ratio gas to oil for my stihl fs 66 trimmer

Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the oil manufacturer's recommended ratio. Today it is usually 50:1.
Fuel in the USA contains ethanol; try to use up your mix in a month or less. HTH

How engine oil i put?


You mix the petrol with "2 stroke oil" at a ratio of 40:1. Use good quality 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl rather than the cheaper ones you get in service stations.

You also need to use Chain Oil which goes in the opening marked Oil. You can get chain oil from any tool hire company or hardware store. It needs to be refilled each time you refill the fuel mix.

What type oil for chainsaw, both w/gas for fuel and also chain lubrication


You mix 2 stroke oil with the petrol/gas at a rate of 40:1 (40 parts petrol to 1 oil). For longer life use a good quality oil like Husqvarna or Stihl rather than the cheaper types you buy at car service stations.

The oil you use for the chain lubrication is just known as chain oil and can be bought at tool hire outlets.

What is the oil/gas ratio for a McColloch "Titan


40:1 is the ratio for modern saws so I expect it's the same for the older ones. Use good 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl brands rather than the cheaper stuff you can buy at car service stations which don't really protect a saw.

I have an old model 1975 , what miks petrol/oil is right.


Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL supplier's recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Homelite chain saw --first time user--do you mix oil and gas--two compartments--is the first compartment for bar oil


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.

Chainsaw gas/oil mix ratio


I have two Stihls that are well over 20 years old. I use the factory recommended mixture, 1 part 2 cycle Stihl oil to regular gas. (1:50)

That is still what the factory recommends. Don't use a cheap 2 cycle oil, go to a Stihl store and buy their 2 cycle oil in the orange plastic bottle.

Im trying to find out the mixture ratio of oil to gas for my craftsman 55cc 18 in bar chainsaw


Fuel oil mixture is deturmined by the brand of mixed fuel you use, not the machine. The machine will state what it's recommended oil brand states. Example a stihl chain saw will be 50:1 with stihl oil but if using echo oil it would be 35:1.
