You need to mix 2.6 ounces of 2-cycle oil (NOT motor oil) with one gallon of fresh gas to get a 50 to 1 mixture. Most 2-cycle oil is sold in small bottles this size and have directions on them to get the correct mixture.

What type of GAS and OIL need for the chain saw?


Hi gjoun...
You will need "Chain and Bar" oil to lube the chain and bar. Special oil made just to lubricate the chain and bar as the chain is running.
For the engine you can use the low grade of gasoline...and 2 cycle oil.
Fuel mix...50 to 1 = 1pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.

I have a HOMELITE XL-12 chain saw. Web sites say it takes a mix of oil and gas. But mine has a place to put oil in. Which should I do?.


The mix of oil and gas should be a 32:1 ratio which is 4 oz. of oil to every gallon of gas. I am assuming that what you are seeing is the oil tank for the bar oil. You need to use bar and chain oil for this tank as it is what keeps the chain lubricated. Do not use two cycle oil for the tank marked oil.

On a gas chain saw, do you mix the gas


there is usually a fuel/oil ratio (i think yours is 50:1) you must buy the 2 cycle oil and mix it with gas at the ratio reccommended by the manufacture. the bottle may say 6 oz per 1 gallon = 50:1 So 1 bottle of 2 cycle oil for every gallon of gas. mix them in a proper fuel can. then let the cutting begin.

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).

Just got a homelite 33cc 14 inch chain saw, do you mix gas and oil on this chain saw?


Yes you do! The ratio is 50:1 fuel to oil. Be sure to use a modern synthetic saw oil available at home centers, hardware stores, and saw dealers. Be sure to use fresh fuel and mix the two in it's own container. Be sure to shake the container thoroughly each time just before refueling to prevent oil starvation in the engine. Don't make up more than one gallon at a time unless sawing is your business. Hope this helps!

Correct mix of gas and oil for Chain Saw


The ratio is 40:1, provided this is a gasoline homelite chainsaw. Find the suitable amount to put into the gas can at a ratio of 3.2 oz per gallon. The bottles that you buy the oil in have marks on them telling you how much there is, and often times, are sized to dump into a preset amount of gas. Put the oil in the can, then put the gas in the can, cap, and shake. Always shake before dispensing.
