Need some help guys

Recommended Posts

There is a major argument on a chainsaw forum over gas and oil ratios used in race saws. Can anybody help me locate some info...I am with the crowd that says 32:1 is a better ration than 50:1 when running built up saws. If anyone could just point me in the direction of where I might find some data I would sure appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

That argument makes no sense.

It does not take into account the quality of the oil, and the type of oil.

Synthetics require less oil, but can overheat and fail

Petroleum requires more oil, but handles overheating better

 

Plus, adding more oil makes the motor run leaner (less gas)) which makes it run hotter, which makes it detonate......

 

 

Fuel/oil ratio is part of the jetting tuning factor.

 

 

It's a dumb argument.

 

You've heard of google, right?
