Most 2t use 2% oil mix ,i like to add a small amount of diesel as well but its only a personal preferance ,yes i know it stinks when running but diesel is a lubricant as well as a fuel and i fine that in my strimmer and chain saw it helps to reach parts other beer can t reach ,yes i know its a pun but i find the small amount of diesel helps to lubricate the crank main bearings ,so 5 litres of petrol 2% oil and half a cup of diesel ,they never sieze up with this mix

What kind oil is i fill in fuel tank

First you must know the proper fuel to oil ratio. I have seen saws run 50:1, 40:1, and 32:1. When you buy some 2 cycle oil there will be instructions on the container on how much oil you need to add per gallon of gas to get the ratio you saw needs. On some saws the ratio is listed on the fuel cap.

What is the oil/gas ratio for a McColloch "Titan

40:1 is the ratio for modern saws so I expect it's the same for the older ones. Use good 2 stroke oil like Husqvarna or Stihl brands rather than the cheaper stuff you can buy at car service stations which don't really protect a saw.

I need to know the proper gas oil mix for the 42cc engine

50:1 is the correct fuel to oil ratio. Be sure to use a modern synthetic oil made for chain saws, and premix the fuel and oil in it's own can-- shake the can thoroughly just before filling the saw each time. With the very lean fuel to oil ratios used today, it is important to keep the oil in suspension to prevent engine damage. Hope this helps!

Most all of these saws use a 50 to 1 ratio. However, i like to use a two cycle oil that has a TCW3 rating to it. This helps to fight again moisture and condensation when the saw isn't being used.
