Stihl saw leaking chain oil?


Chainsaws can become messy even if the oiler is working correctly. Check the oil level frequently during a cutting session. If frequent refills are necessary, the oiler may be defective

Stihl chainsaw 210 owners mannual


Fuel needs to be mixed with 2 stroke oil at a ratio of 50:1
50 parts fuel to 1 part oil.
Also it requires 'chain oil' used as a lubricant and bar coolant, this goes in the tank beneath the exhaust.

I need to know a fuel oil ratio.


Regardless of what the manual says once adjusted your saw will perform better with this mix.
Do you need bar oil? Available at any Hardware or Home Center.
Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL suppliers 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
