Best Practices for Mixing Fuel for your Saws

☑ All Stihl gasoline-powered equipment runs on a 50:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil.

☑ With too much oil, you can cause carbon build-up on your spark arrestor.

☑ Not enough oil can lead to scoring on the piston and cylinder and bring damage to the saw bearings.

☑ Use 89+ octane fuel with low or no ethanol added.

☑ Only mix enough for a few days of work.

☑ Do not exceed 30 days of storage.

☑ Ensure proper mixing procedures based on your gas can's capacity.

☑ Always use all of your remaining fuel before you refill again.

☑ Call Esch for cutting equipment, diamond blades, walk behind saw parts and service, and expert advice!
