Not to worry, just drain out any old gas, put in a little new gas, shake it a little, pour that out fill it up and use it. If its bad varnished w/ old gas use stuff called Seafoam pour it in, shake it up let it sit over night and pour that out use like normal.

What is the gas/oil ratio for this chainsaw? Is synthetic oil okay to use in it?


Generally 2 stroke engines work on a ratio of 50:1
100ml of 2 stroke oil in 5L of petrol.
Use good quality 2 stroke engine oil for the mixture, Stihl and Husqvarna both have high quality engine oils, designed for more efficient lubrication and emissions quality.

Husqvarna 55 1997 7351593 whatis the oil to gas mixture


The mixture is 40:1 that is 40 parts petrol to 1 part 2 stroke oil. Use good quality 2 stroke oil, e.g. Husqvarna or Stihl, rather than the cheap stuff you get at car service stations. This will prolong the life of your chainsaw.

What is proper gas mixture?


fuel mix ratio is 50:1 using good quality 2 stroke oil

ie if you mix 20 mils of oil for every 1 litre of petrol that you mix
that is 50:1

or if you want a 5 litre mix put in 100 mils of oil into a clean petrol container 1st then put in 5 litres of fuel only and give good shake

mix it @ ratio 50:1 that is 100 mils of oil per 5 litres of petrol

or on a 1 litre basis it would be 20 mils of oil per litre

run it on 25:1 mix that is 40 mils of oil per litre of petrol

be sure to put required qty of in clean container 1st then add petrol qty to the can and give good shake , then fill your 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

What is th petrol and oil ratio for a homelite petrol chainsaw 33c- csp 3314


Generally you're looking at a 50:1 ratio on most chainsaws and I wouldn't see any reason the homelite should be any different. Usually it's one 2.5oz container of the oil mixture to one gallon of gasoline but check the label to be sure.

Can't rememeber what fuel or oil it needs and how to start it


Start with a 40-1 mixture this should not hurt engine for a long time if you are just a casual user. The oil in the chain reservoir is chainsaw bar oil and I usually top off each time I refill the fuel. To start Turn on switch, close choke, hold throttle to open position, You may need to place saw on the ground hold down with foot in the handle while pulling cord. Once it tries to start place choke in mid position and try to start again. Once it is running place choke in full open position.
