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.

How much gas to mix the oil in?

First check that your Mantis needs an oil/gas mixture, most of the newer Mantis tillers have four-stroke motors meaning they have oil in the crankcase and use straight gas. If your Mantis needs oil mixed in the gas use a 50:1 ratio. That's usually 2.6 ounces of two-cycle oil (it's sold in bottles that size) to one gallon of gas but read the oil bottle to get the proper mix ratio.

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.

Toro proline model 53030 how do you install line and what size line? also what gas do i use ? thnks

they are usually .60 or .80. mm line size. You use any gasoline that is FRESH ONLY! I can not over stress how many problems that saves you over time. But for that model (and many like it) you must understand its a 2 cycle engine (or 2 stroke) now this is VERY IMPORTANT. Gasoline alone in any 2 stroke engine will destroy it if used alone, without mixing special "2 cycle or 2 stroke" oil with it. Look at the gas cap, or a sticker or a label on the trimmer and you will see a 2 cycle oil to gasoline ratio indication number. That means what it implies, and yes, you mix the two together. Common mix ratios are typically 30:1 (30 parts gas to 1 part oil) Some vary up to 50:1 some as low as 25:1. If its not on the trimmer try the owners manual ITS THERE! generally that means a 2.5 ounce bottle of 2 cycle oil (Not Car Motor oil! There is a big difference in performance for 2 cycle motors. You need to mix 2 cycle oil types only) poured into a 1 gallon container of gas. Shake it up, fill your trimmer with that. Here look at this link. (Copy and paste it into your browser'd address bar, then hit enter.) They will show you all you need to know on how to restring the line.

Gas/oil ratio for a Homlite yard broom UT 08026H blower

It's 40:1 but there are oil mixes out there now that you can buy that you mix with one gallon of gas and then it is safe for all 2-cycle engines...a real plus if you own multiple units with different mix ratios.

Need to know oil to gas mix ratio for Craftsman 32cc, 360 cfm, 170 mph blower vac? Can someone provide ratio?

40:1 is the standard mix. Go buy one of the little containers ( 3.2 ounces) of 2-cycle oil and mix it with a gallon of gas in an approved container (like a gas can). How you mix it is, pour some gas in the container...about 1/4 of the gallon, then pour in the oil, mix well, by shaking the can then add the remaining gasoline and PRESTO, you have a 40:1 mix!
