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

ST175G, 2 cycle engine, I lost the manual and I cant remember the percentage of the mixing oil and gas. It has been a few years since I did it. Please help. Thank you, Roger


the type of oil to use is 2 stroke oil ( not ordinary engine oil as for cars )and the ratio is 40:1
the engine type is a homelite engine and the ratio can be 40:1 or 50: 1
I prefer to set the ratio as to the smoke produced so if 40:1 produces too much smoke at full rpms , drop it back to 50:1
The correct mix is when there is JUST visible smoke at rpms
definitely no e fuels.

What is the ratio pet /oil for 36cc mccullock (it says 40: 1 on the lid is this correct)


yes

if using good quality 2 stroke oil

use 25 mils of oil for every 1 litre of petrol you mix this is 40 :1

or on a 2 litre qty mix you would pour in 50 mils of oil in a clean petrol container 1st then add 2 litres of petrol only and give good shake then fill your saw

cheers paul

hope it helps

2003 pontiac bonneville. I discovered my oil


ok, if you havent added any oil to it, the only thing I can think of is you blew a head gasket, and you have radiator fluid mixed with your oil, hence the high oil pressure. Pull your dip stick and check your oil that way, to ensure proper oil levels and to check if you do or do not have coolant in the oil, another way to check is to see if you have oil in your coolant, once the seal on the gasket is broken oil and coolant dont have anything preventing them from mixing.

Mcculloch 310 oil mix ratio


The proper gas/oil ratio is 50:1, that is 50 parts gas, to one part (2) cycle oil.

If you plan on leaving gas in the tank when not being used, I always recommend adding some gas stabilizer, such as Sta-bil, which makes starting the chain saw easier regardless of how long the fuel mix has been sitting in the tank or saw (up to 2 years according to Sta-bil label)

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Oil & Gasoline


Hi Thomas, you can find bar oil for the chain at just about any hardware store. Just tell them you need chainsaw bar oil. The oil that mixes with the gasoline is called 2- cycle mix. They will have that also. You can find the 2- cycle mix at a lot of gas stations too but a lot of guys caution not to use the 2 - cycle mix that is made for outboard motors. . Hope that answered your questions.

I dont have the manual and Im not sure what ype of oil I should put on this chain saw. On the left The nob sais oil (which kind?) and on the right side it sais oil/gas mix (which kind?) what do i put on...


The Left knob needs chain oil. Available in most hardware stores. The right is gas mixed with 2 stroke motor oil. Usually a 50:1 mix. Ie. 50 parts gas to 1 part oil. 2 stroke oil comes with a built in measuring tool and directions printed on the bottle.
