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

The older 1970's micro 25 uses a higher oil ratio at 16:1, the 40:1 will damage the engine. Need to use a good small engine 2 cycle oil NOT outboard type. The web site for the owners manual is:

It is probably 40:1 ... if you will look at your instruction book or visit the Poulan web site, you wiull fine out exactly what the mix is.

How does the oiler work on a poulan micro xxv


The oiler operates off the crankshaft under a cover behind the sprocket. Find the oil port near the back end of the guide bar where the oil pump injects the oil onto the chain. That port could be plugged. Your little Micro probably does not have an adjustable oiler but just in case invert the saw body and see if there is a + and - in the casting just under the sprocket. If so, moving the slotted adjustment towards the + increases oil flow.

Sometimes sawdust enters the tank when being filled and plugs up the inlet to the oil pump. Keep an old 1" paintbrush with your oil can so you can brush away the debris before opening the oil tank to fill while in the woods.

We need a manual to help replace the fuel line on a Poulan Deluxe Super 25


You do not need a manual; exactly like the video that follows:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3706813-2_cycle_fuel_system_repair
No primer or second carburetor connection. Be kind to the oil pump; they are no longer available.

All fuel components are on the "Ignition, Electrical & Flywheel" print here (filter and hose are available):

Poulan Micro Super XXV Deluxe S250?


Just like the video:
Fuel Line Replacement by SmallEng.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrXpU70Hmi0

The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best. Fuel components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:

I have poulan micro xxv chain not being oil when


wow thats an oldie, That saw uses a diaphragm pump located just above and in front of the clutch drum. Its going tobe hard to find one if its bad, Try cleaning out the oiler hole in the bar first, Then try running the saw without the bar and chain on and see if it pumps.Also check the oil pickup tube in the tank, It has a small screen on the end of it thats prone to sawdust clogging it. If it still does not oil then I suggest you locate the gasket and diaphragm for the pump before you take it apart. Remember to clean everything before reassembling,, Good luck

What is the proper gas/oil mix for a poulan xxv counter chainsaw?


I'm not sure about that specific saw. Most I have seen are 40/1. Check the gas cap, it may be stamped on it.
