Video of the Day

Use a gas can to make your mix. Your local hardware store should have gas cans designed for two-cycle fuel. These cans hold 1 1/4 or 2 1/2 gallons.

Measure the one gallon of unleaded gas you put in the can. Echo recommends using 89 octane fuel.

Add 2.6 ounces of two-cycle oil to the gas can.

Fill the tank on your chainsaw and get to work.

Tips & Warnings

  • Measure the fuel and oil precisely for long engine life.
