    35 to 1 for older but a bit newer went to 40 to 1 and even newest version reach 50 to 1.

    Just what I remember

    So I guess if I use my 32:1 lawnboy mix that should be good and save me another different mix.

    Default 1 Mix For All Ratio Mix

    I have been using the small 3.2 oz bottle of 2-cycle engine oil, this will mix with 1 gallon of gas and is good for any ratio it is used by lawn care company , we have used it for 15 years or more on some of the 2-cycle we are still using today. At one time we had 3 different mix ratio and that was a problem keeping the right mix. This is sold almost any where.

    Default gas/oil mix

    I use the 3.2 oz oil for 1 gallon of gas too. I was told the 32:1 mix was designed for old type oil that didn't do the job as well as modern oil does. Running too much oil will dirty the plug and cause carbon deposits in the ports and combustion chamber. If your saw emits smoke that is a sign of too much oil.

    Click here, then go to the chainsaw collector site.
    They list your saw there with all kinds of specs.
    They have been a great help in the past when dealing with my Dolmar saws.
    Good luck
