If the saw in not over 30 years old, it should be safe to use 40:1 fuel to oil mix providing that you use a modern synthetic saw oil. Don't use boat motor oil or other petroleum based oils. Premix them very well in the saw's own fuel can and agitate the can before each use. Regular chain/bar oil is used in the oil tank. Good luck!

2 stroke petrol chainsaws requite a 2 stroke fuel oil mix, 50:1.
50 parts fuel to 1 part oil.

How engine oil i put?


You mix the petrol with "2 stroke oil" at a ratio of 40:1. Use good quality 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl rather than the cheaper ones you get in service stations.

You also need to use Chain Oil which goes in the opening marked Oil. You can get chain oil from any tool hire company or hardware store. It needs to be refilled each time you refill the fuel mix.

What is the fuel mix for 359


hi there troyandbec

pauly46 here
'
the ratio you should use is 50:1

that is 20 mils of 2 stroke oil for every 1.0 litre of petrol that you mix

so if you want to make 2 litre mix use 40 mils of 2 stroke oil , then add 2 litres of petrol only and give good shake

note use good quality 2 stroke oil , such as sthil or husqvarna oil from your outdoor power shop


but if using general 2 stroke oil from a garage use 40 mils of oil for every 1 litre that you mix
this ratio is 25:1 this mix is on the richer side

cheers hope this helps

What type oil for chainsaw, both w/gas for fuel and also chain lubrication


You mix 2 stroke oil with the petrol/gas at a rate of 40:1 (40 parts petrol to 1 oil). For longer life use a good quality oil like Husqvarna or Stihl rather than the cheaper types you buy at car service stations.

The oil you use for the chain lubrication is just known as chain oil and can be bought at tool hire outlets.
