How to properly mix two-stroke oil and petrol for a chainsaw

Tips for properly mixing fuel for a chainsaw:

  1. Always mix the petrol and oil in a clean container intended for fuel.
  2. Always start by filling with half of the petrol to be used, then add all of the oil, mix (agitate) the fuel mixture and add the remaining petrol.
  3. Do not mix more than one month’s supply of fuel at a time.
  4. Mix (agitate) the fuel mixture thoroughly before filling the machine’s fuel tank.
  5. Mix the correct ratio as specified by the manufacturer.

To find the fuel mix ratio, please refer to your operator’s manual.

The fuel and oil mixture should always be 2% (50:1). We recommend that you use Husqvarna oil mixtures.
