Answer: 
If you are going to mix your own use the included 40-1 or 50-1 oil, use premium gas. I choose to use the pricey pre mixed ethanol free fuel sold at the store. Ethanol will kill a weed eater, chainsaw or blower by rotting the fuel lines. It is worth the price to me in time to have a tool that starts every time without problem and I get that on my Poulans, and Echos. You will never get a Homelite to last Read More

Answer: 
It uses a 50:1 mixture gas to oil. Note I suggest that you don't get gas with ethanol. You can get the gas already premixed at the Home Depot, but you will pay a premium. We have a Race Trac convenience store here that sells gas with no ethanol. I just buy the 2-cycle oil and mix with the non-ethanol Gas myself.

This saw has a 2-cycle engine so use regular gasoline (50:1 mix) - do not use Ethanol gas. It helps to use an additive that removes Ethanol.

I am aware the manual states that 10% alcohol can be used by I wouldn't use the stuff if you want a longer better running life from your saw. The fuel air adjustments are generally on the upper side in front of the handle, but before adjustment clean the air filter and a clean tank of the true gas already mixed in the can and run it a little while to see if it gets right. If I recall right you close the screw clock wise then 1 1/3 turn counter clock wise on both, that should get you where you can fine tune it. Read Less

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 195 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If you need a paper weight if you are looking to cut anything good luck and the best part is they don't honor the warranty. This was my last purchase at Home Despot. It took them 2 months to contact me after sending it in only to tell me they could fix it for $250 i told them that was a deal when i asked what was wrong with it they told me they couldn't tell me which was a real what the heck moment. So if you are looking to roll the dice on a piece of junk then throw them bones otherwise save a little more and buy something that doesn't say HomeLIte and made in china on it July 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Barely adequate for home use I would never buy one of these personally, but it was a gift. Very cheap and flimsy feeling, but then a Stihl costs 3-4x as much, so you have to factor that in. Carb was out of whack from the get go and it would barely run. After adjusting the l and h mixture screws (which i think is illegal now) it starts right up and runs great for awhile, but any kind of extended use under load makes it overheat. It has some goofy tree hugger catalytic muffler that gets REALLY hot which I believe is the source of all my woes, but it doesn't make evil blue smoke. Thanks mother government! May 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this Chain Saw 16" blade, just the right size for home use. This Chain Saw is a perfect fit for home use for felling trees and cutting up thick branches for firewood. I recommend this to anyone that needs one for felling the trees and cutting up thick branches into firewood. It helped me clear up the over grown trees in my back yard. December 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by awesome Worked perfect to knock down couple trees starts pulls easy. Comfortable to handle June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Spend the money and get a real chain saw So bad I'm ready to toss it in the trash! Difficult to start, constantly over heats, chain comes off far too often all make it not worth the aggravation. My fault for trying to save a few bucks - don't make the same mistake I did. June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1 season then throw it away Worked well for first season. Then season 2 nothing.. cleaned everything, new spark plug, clean fuel, clean carb, NOTHING. Tech support was useless. June 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Not a bad saw at all...do your maintenance! We bought over 12 acres of old-growth woods and scrub-brush. Right out of the hardshell case, filled it up with the properly mixed fueloil, filled the reservoir with bar-oil (any oil will do, but, I recommend used oil from your car's oilpan, as I am a cheap bastiche, n' can find uses for used motor oil...doesn't hurt anything in the saw, and why buy high dollar oil for the bar when it's used merely for bar/chain lubrication?), and felled 2 foot diameter white oak and red oak trees, by properly notching the trees in the direction to fall desired, and carefully cutting behind the direction of travel. First off, I do NOT recommend it, but, I got rid of that stupid nosepiece, as I am an experienced chainsaw handler and needed to be able to nose-dive occasionally, for proper under-bucking and over-bucking of limbs from felled trees. While not very powerful, this chainsaw IS very light and maneuverable, making fairly quick work for firewood. Having read a number of reviews here about how this saw wouldn't run, kept dying, etc., I would suggest the owner check the carburetor for valve sticking issues (rebuilding and cleaning these tiny carburetors is very easy, and WORTH learning how to do), and pulling the sparkplug for wire-brushing and cleaning the electrode frequently. If you do not like taking chainsaws apart and maintaining them, don't buy a chainsaw! I've had this saw for four years, n' I replaced the clutch once, and five new chains (the 16" chain wears out pretty quickly, as I have HOUNDED this poor little chainsaw). Of course, during storage, the bar oil reservoir leaks the oil out all around the bottom of the case, but, I've learned to use the last of the oil in the reservoir before storing for the few weeks/months between use. I ALWAYS use compressed air to blow the oily sawdust from under the clutch and drive cover; leaving a film of oil all over the metal surfaces. This little saw has knocked down some serious trees, like Red Oak, White Oak, Pines, Bays, Magnolias, WHATEVER! Proper maintenance is key to keeping ALL chainsaws running strong and safely! Yes, this is an in-expensive little chainsaw, built for occasional use; such as trimming boughs and branches, and if you truly need a PROFESSIONAL chainsaw, don't buy this one! That being said, I will buy another Homelite, no problem, when, and if, THIS one finally dies of over-use and rough handling. Still using it, 'tho, and it has knocked down and bucked dozens of 40-60 foot trees. White oak makes for good firewood! May 28, 2016
