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 8oz/2gal - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (Stihl 2.6oz/1gal)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few months. Anything over 6 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

    If it sputters as it dies it is probably a fuel adjustment or dirty carburetor.

    If it goes from full speed to dead stop it is most likely electrical - ignition module (sometimes they stop working when hot; rare) or associated wiring.

Front speakers keep cutting out


If they cut out when they are turned up they are busted, get new ones. If they are cutting out when you hit a bump or something, then you have a loose wire somewhere between the player and the speaker, maybe check the doors and see if one might be crimped.
