Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Hello George:
I cannot find an OM for your saw. I did find 3 IPLs the oldest being 1993. I have 2 McCulloch (1983 & 87) saws both older than yours and their OMs recommend the current mix ratio of 40:1
Oil Mix Ratio:
The following ratios have been recommended for the last 10-15 years.
Dolmar, Echo, Efco, Homelite, Husqvarna, Jonsered, Makita, Oleo-Mac, Red Max, Ryobi, Shindaiwa, Solo, Spear & Jackson, Stihl & Tanaka; all recommend 50:1.
• 1 gallon of premium fuel to 2.6 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
• 4 liters of premium fuel to 80 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
McCulloch, Poulan & Wen; recommend 40:1.
• 1 gallon of premium fuel to 3.2 ounces of quality 2-cycle oil.
• 4 liters of premium fuel to 100 milliliters of quality 2-cycle oil.
Chinese chainsaws recommend 25:1.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

McCulloch recommends “Universal powered by McCulloch two-stroke oil”. The petrol/oil ratio must be 50:1.
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?
Today, McCulloch offers a complete line of garden products: powerful chainsaws, sturdy trimmers, lawnmowers, garden tractors and hedge trimmers.
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.
Modern gasoline chainsaws run at 50:1 mixture, 50 parts gasoline to 1 part oil. Older chainsaws can require 16:1 mixtures or 32:1 (most common). Two-stroke engines are much more efficient now, as well as having cleaner combustion. At most automotive stores, pre-mix fuel can be bought in 50:1 and 40:1 mixtures.
40 to 1 ratio

This equals 25mls of two stroke oil to 1 litre of petrol.

Turn the idle screw — I — clockwise until the chain starts to spin, then turn it counterclockwise slightly. Adjust the screw to find the highest setting possible without making the chain spin. Check the setting by holding a digital tachometer over the spark plug. It should read between 2,700 and 2,900 rpm.
With no dangerous connections or wires, McCulloch chainsaws are easy to use and very durable. The biggest advantage is that it`s cordless, and as long as you have a full fuel tank, you can take full reign of the garden. We can help you decide with these quick questions.
In 1999 McCulloch sold its European division to Husqvarna AB. Nine years later, Husqvarna also acquired the rights to the McCulloch brand on the North American market. Since then, McCulloch is a brand within the Husqvarna Group.
