    There are many different model 3300 Homelite saws and I do not like to reply without checking the correct OM. Given what you provided I cannot locate the correct OM for your saw. IMO It will not harm a properly operating saw to run it on 50:1 regardless of what your OM says.



    The following is correct for saws manufactured for about the past 10 years.

    Oil Mix Ratio:

    Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1.

    1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.

    4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.

    McCulloch, Poulan & Wen; recommend 40:1.

    1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.

    4 liters of premium fuel to 100 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.

    Chinese chainsaws recommend 25:1.



    You can get an OM for your saw here:

This should run well with 40:1 ratio using modern synthetic saw oils only. Always premix the fuel and oil in a can before adding to the saw, then agitate the saw to mix the old with the new. Hope this helps!

XL-12 and 15 agree with your mixture, no 16 listed.
32:1 = 1 gallon of premium fuel to 4 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.

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).

What is the mix for my Homelite 16" 33cc chainsaw?


50:1 is the fuel to oil ratio. Never use petroleum oil (engine or boat motor oil). Always use a synthetic saw oil available from home centers, hardware stores and saw dealers. The bottles are usually graduated to various ratios for a gallon of fresh gas. Always premix in it's own container and shake the container thoroughly each time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Be sure to use bar/chain oil for the chain as well, and keep the chain sharp and well adjusted. Hope this helps!

Do not know what mixture or how to use


40:1 mixture for the fuel:oil ratio.16:1 will cause your saw to barely run(if at all) and if it does, will fog out every mosquito for 4 blocks. You can use any reputable 2-stroke oil, though stay away from outboard engine oil. Get the good stuff that says Stihl, or Husquavarnah, or something like that. Even the Homelite stuff is ok. The oil tank takes regular bar and chain oil.

Gas oil mixture


The header says that it is an electric saw which would only require bar oil. A 2-stroke gas engine, however, does require fuel mixed with a modern saw oil at 40:1 ratio plus bar/chain oil in it's own tank as well. Always premix the fuel and oil in a separate can and shake well even before filling the saw. Hope this helps!

Homelite chain saw --first time user--do you mix oil and gas--two compartments--is the first compartment for bar oil


In the compartment closest to the chainsaw bar, you need to fill this with chain and bar oil. Any good name brand will work fine.

In the other compartment you need to add a mix of petrol and oil in the ratio specified for your saw. If unsure, 25:1 petrol/oil ratio should be ok.

What is the oil-gas mix for a homelite superxl chainsaw? For 1 gal.


16:1 ratio for most 2-stroke oil brands. A service manual recommends tro check the ratio marked on the bottle if using Homelite brand 2-stroke oil. For other oils, 16 parts of gas to 1 part of oil.

For 1 gal of fuel, that is 270cc of oil required to meet the 16:1 ratio.
