The main problem with running 10% alcohol fuel is that it runs hotter than non alcohol fuel.What I have done for the last 15 years in my stihl chain saws is runs fuel oil mix slightly on the rich side. Stihl reccommends mix to be 50 to 1 and I use about 45 to 1 and they run great. One saw I've been using for 10 years and have had no problems. I also use a additive called sea foam, available at most auto parts stores. I use about 4 ounces per gallon. As far as your warranty goes If you cannot get alcohol free gas I don't see where you have much choice if you want to use your saw Hope this helps. Thanks

Brand new Echo cs-400 chain saw: The chain spins fast on idle. Should'nt the chain be stationary on idle?


The manual is available here:

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/ECHO/CS-400-_E

The idle speed of the negine may be too high.
Page 26 of the manual gives instructions for adjusting the speed with the "T" screw on the carburettor.

My 18 " craftsman chainsaw will not oil the chain.


Take the bar off and clean the grove out with something like a small flat blade screwdriver.Make sure its open where it bolts on.It gets its oil through the bolt holes.If you have a way to blow the dirt out it helps.You can try running the saw without the bar on to see if its putting out any oil.If not you will have to get to the oil pump to see if its not bad.
