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's the gas oil ratio for model UT20044A Weed trimmer?


Homelite says to use there Premiums Exact Oil at 50:1 ratio. Then they say if you don't use the Premium Exact to use high grade 2 cycle at the ratio of 2.6 oz. per gallon of gas. That also works out to very nearly 50:1. Do not use regular motor oil.

Thanks for using FixYa.

What type of petrol do I get for the chainsaw


What make and model of chainsaw do you have?

Chainsaws take the same gas you put in your vehicles, however the gas must be mixed with 2 cycle oil. The ratio of gas and oil depends on the make and model.

Reply back and I will look up the gas/oil ratio for you.

Thanks,

Need gas/oil mix for Homelite 330 10604A, HJ


To the best of my recollection the 330 is an older model saw and should be running about a 16:1 ratio. 8oz. of oil to 1 gallon of fuel. Hope this helps.

Note: You're always better being a bit richer (lower ratio) than you are leaner (higher ratio).

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.
