Q: How do I mix gas and oil? A: Mix 3.2 ounces of Poulan 2-cycle air cooled engine oil to one gallon of fresh unleaded gasoline to obtain the recommended 40:1 fuel to oil ratio.
Proper Fuels

Poulan engines are designed to run best on 87-octane regular unleaded gasoline — avoid using diesel fuel and E85.

A single fuel pipe runs from the tank, under the floor of the car to a mechanical pump on the engine. The pump delivers fuel to the carburettor. Whenever you check fuel pipes, disconnect the battery to prevent stray sparks igniting petrol or petrol vapour.
Most vehicles have rubber fuel hoses connecting the fuel pipes on the chassis to the fuel pump or carburetor on the engine. Rubber hoses are flexible and can be cut to length as required, but they have a tendency to perish over time and can rub through if not properly secured.
Oil mix ratios explained

If your manufacturer recommends a 50:1 fuel/oil mix, it means you need 50 parts of gas to one part two-stroke oil. To mix one gallon of fuel at 50:1, add 2.6 ounces of two-stroke oil to one gallon of gas, as shown in the chart below.

For a 50:1 ratio of gas to oil, use 2.6 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas. For a 40:1 mixture, use 3.2 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas.
STIHL recommends that customers use a minimum of 89 octane fuel. If a customer chooses to use a 91 or 93 octane fuel, no damage to the engine will result. However, using an 87 octane fuel could lead to serious engine damage.

The (clear) fuel intake line runs from the top of the carburetor (straight nipple) and goes to the short post on the back of the primer bulb. The return line (blue) comes from the long post on the back of the primer bulb and goes into the bottom of the fuel tank.

Poulanproleafblower not primeing
ANSWER : Either your fuel
is broken inside the tank or your carb is blocked up inside. Empty the fuel tank and look inside and see if you fuel inlet line has a little plastic or metal filter on the end. *(this is called a “clunk”) The clunk keeps the fuel line in gas no matter which way you have the blower tilted. Chances are you will see the clunk just laying in the bottom of the tank with whats left of the fuel line still attached. If the fuel line and clunk are intact then your need to get a diagram of the carb and do a dissembly and cleaning. The carbs have tiny screen filters which jam up with debris and gelled fuel. So a rebuild kit with new filter would be a good thing to get if your carb is cruddy. You can look online at Poulanpro and see which kit you need to buy. They are 10-15 bucks usually. New fuel lines is also a good idea if you are going this deep into the unit. Be safe and good luck!
