Enter the 3 digit model number (no XPs, Es, just the numbers)
Serial number decode – for use with IPL

06 = year produced – 2006 (single digit before 2000)
15 = week produced - March

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 the gas/2 cycle oil mixtuure for a husqvarna 55 chainsaw


These saws were normally ran on a slightly richer mix. The reason was becuase of the mix oil available. I would recommend running a 40:1 or 50:1 mix. Make sure you use an "FD" rated mix oil and Premium ethanol free fuel.
The premixed fuels / oils are even better. They contain the FD rated oil 95 octane fuel and no ethanol.

Yes, this saw does use mixed oil / fuel. The ratio should be 50:1 and always use a quality FD rated mix oil. This is where cheaper is NOT better.

Unable to locate adjustment control for chain oiler model 345 husqvarna chainsaw


Not all 345 machines had an adjustable oiler, it is retro fittable if it does not, however if it hs an adjuster, the screw is located on the bottom of the saw between the cranckcase and the fuel tank, just below the sprocket, there will be an oil symbol and a - and + sign there, the pump is three position, for 13/15/18" bars.

Unleaded fuel with Husqvarna two stoke oil mixed at 50-1, for the chain you need a non fling chain oil, both should be available from your local Husqvarna dealer.

Would it be possible for you to let me know what oil /fuel ratio can be made for a CR125cc 2004 HUSQVARNA. well the previous owner had 40:1 yet he may have been trail riding how can i alter my performance...


Yes 40 - 1 mix is a common race mix and if you dont do weekly maintenance and regular rebuilds you would be better at 32-1 33-1 mixes as this is more oil to fuel mix so better lube and lower burn temperature inside the motor.
when changing to higher oil mix make gradual changes to the fuel mix 1 tank at a time and record your ration as your bike will respond to the changes sometimes well sometimes bad but if you do small steps and record the result you will know what mix is best for your area and bike
In short the more oil you can give it and still ride well the better fore engine life (within reason) but you will lose some performance compared to less oil mix like 40 - 1 ratio (race mix)

Could you please tell me the fuel mixture for husqvarna chainsaw


All Husqvarna machines are built to run on Husqvarna oil at 50-1, with the exception of the 3120XP this machine runs a 25-1 mix due to its size, always try to use the manufacturer of the saws oil , wheather it be Husqvarna, Stihl, Poulon, all manufacturers produce there own oil, they know the lubrication requirements of there machines, so what i am saying is Husqvarna two stroke oil mixed at 50-1.

The mix fuel mix is 40:1. Use Husqvarna 2 stroke oil not the cheap stuff on sale at car service stations. The chamber for oil is for chain oil which can be bought at most places that sell or hire machinery like chainsaws, lawnmowers etc.

Need fuel mix ratio & plug gap 4 husky 154 sg chainsaw


Hi there, No problem.
Recommended fuel mix ration if using Husqvarna brand premium Two-Stroke Oil is 50:1. If using another two-stroke air cooled engine oil, you should use 25:1 fuel:oil ratio.

Regading the spark plug, the recommended plug is a Champion RCJ7Y with a plug gap of 0.5mm (or 0.020 inches).
