Herein, is a chainsaw a two stroke engine?
2-Stroke Gas Chainsaw Engine It is called 2-stroke engine because that is the number of strokes or motions of a piston head that it takes for it to produce power. In a 2-stroke engine, the first movement of the piston pushes draws in air and fuel as it moves downwards in its cylinder.
Similarly, do chainsaws take mixed gas? Read Your Manual Your manual will tell you the fuel mixture you need. Many gas-powered chainsaws run on a 40:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil. Stihl chainsaws and others run on a 50:1 mixture of gas and 2-cycle engine oil. Some older models use a 30:1 ratio.
