Use a 40:1 two-cycle oil mix ratio. One gallon of gasoline combined with 3.2 oz of two-cycle engine oil. Unsure of the age of your equipment?
The fuel and oil mixture should always be 2% (50:1).
Mixing Ratios

Use the below as a guide for creating your mixture: 1 gallon of gasoline + 2.6 fluid ounces of oil.

You want to mix 2.6 ounces of oil to one gallon of gasoline for a 50:1 mixture. If you`re mixing up two gallons of gasoline you will have to mix 5.2 ounces of oil to two gallons of gasoline for a 50:1 mixture. I would recommend using fresh gasoline that has an octane rating of 89.
Mix at 50:1 (20mls oil per 1 litre fuel) when you`re using STIHL 2-Stroke oil. To prolong the life of your 2-Stroke fuel mix you can add STIHL fuel stabiliser to extend the fuel`s shelf life up to 12 months. 15ml of STIHL fuel stabiliser will treat 5 litres of fuel.
1:25 = 1 part oil + 25 parts petrol, or 40 ml oil per litre of petrol when using other brands of oil. Any two-stroke engine oil you use in your petrol gardening tool must have the TC classification.
For a 40:1 mixture, use 3.2 fluid ounces of oil per gallon of gas.
If you are unsure 40:1 is a middle range 2 stroke fuel ratio. This equals 25mls of two stroke oil to 1 litre of petrol.
1:25 = 1 part oil + 25 parts petrol, or 40 ml oil per litre of petrol when using other brands of oil. Any two-stroke engine oil you use in your petrol gardening tool must have the TC classification.
For a mixing ratio of 1 : 50 you need 5 litres of petrol and 0.10 litres (100cmÂ³) of STIHL two-stroke oil.

ANSWER : Yep they swell after a while and will not screw in or out!
Sand the threads down so that the circumference is reduced with a course file or plumbers cloth, chamfer the threads a bit on the edges. A new one will do the same thing after a while so just fix the one you have.
