Though nothing might ever happen, I would hate to hear that someone was injured mixing gas and electricity. I would probably go to your local ace hardware or something like that, and find bar and chain oil much like the product shown in the link above
How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

Most STIHL gasoline-powered equipment runs on a 50:1 mixture of gasoline and 2-cycle engine oil.
Bar-and-chain oil comes in two types: summer and winter. Egelhoff explains that summer and winter oils have different viscosity. Winter oil is thinner, allowing it to run smoothly even in cold temperatures and when stored for awhile. Summer oil is thicker, heavier and formulated to work in hot conditions.
This means that the viscosity of this oil ranges (5w30) from 5 when it`s cold to 30 when it is hot. This oil is good lubricating for light-duty diesel and petrol engines. So, you can use it as a Chainsaw Bar Oil.
Excess oil can produce a smoky exhaust, oil leaking out of the muffler, and sometimes loss of power. While not ideal, these issues can be fixed by simply replacing the fuel in the tank with properly mixed fuel. But running a two-cycle engine with too little oil can actually destroy the unit.
Don`t use automobile motor oil for your gas mixture. Use only two-cycle engine oil. Automobile motor oil contains noncombustible additives that will foul your two-cycle engine.
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?
Motor oil flings off the chain more quickly, so if you try Terry`s tip, be prepared to refill the oil on your chain saw more quickly than with regular bar and chain oil.
Naturally, the chain of your chainsaw will need to be oiled well to function perfectly. To make sure that it functions well, grab some WD-40 Multi-Use-Product. WD-40 works great for both – rust prevention and lubrication.
