I am not familiar with the model No. but most chainsaws are Two Strokes and require a fuel & oil mix. The fuel tank cap should indicate by symbols or words the fuel requirements. If unsure call your local agent or chain saw retailer.
The standard Fuel / Oil mix for most two strokes is 25 : 1

Do you have to mix oil and fuel before putting in the fuel tank if so what oil and petrol do i need to use


Yes. You need to purchase two-cycle oil and mix it with petrol according to the chainsaw manufacturer instructions (this information is in the manual). It will specify the appropriate mix for your chainsaw.

What cuases valves to burn in an engine


Weak mixture is main cause ,but what is the psec on this engine as modern fuel is unleaded and if this is a 1990 then it could have been made to only run on leaded petrol ,unleaded engines have a stelite coating on the valve and the seat in the head to run on unleaded fuel ,or the valves have been ground in more than once and the coating has been worn away .Check with the dealer if this model is designed for unleaded fuel ,if it has a cat on it then its designed for unleded fuel

Can 94 jetta run on leaded or unleaded petrol


It is best to run this engine on unleaded petrol. A high grade unleaded will give you extra performance and cause no damage. Leaded fuel was designed for cars made in the 60's to 80's that had used softer materials in their cylinder heads, leaded fuel pro-longed cylinder head life and reduced pre-ignition. Unleaded fuels are a cleaner, safer fuel to use.

Clean old petrol can thoroughly


Not to worry, just drain out any old gas, put in a little new gas, shake it a little, pour that out fill it up and use it. If its bad varnished w/ old gas use stuff called Seafoam pour it in, shake it up let it sit over night and pour that out use like normal.

14" Ryobi petrol chainsaw will only run for 10 seconds


You are on the right track. Keep priming which indicates the fuel mixture is too lean to run. In other words the fuel line is partially clogged up. A drop of water on the gas tank would cause this problem. The fuel is fed on the suction basis. So clean up the fuel tank, (disassembly the carburator) reservoir, needle, float, offrice and fuel filter. A can of carburator cleaner (spray one) is a big help.
