Found a nice Husqvarna 562 xp chainsaw at garage sale. Can someone tell me the correct fuel/oil mix for this saw? Thanks for any info.

Butch, ya gotta spell the whole idea out or even more people are going to get more confused. What Butch's line should have read is "Oil percentage does affect tuning, if you dont reset the carburetor more oil equals less fuel which equals leaner FUEL/AIR mixture which equals bad for engine." Too many people don't/can't grasp the difference between the fuel mixture lean/rich idea (a "richer" mix has more oil v gas, "leaner" has less oil v gas) and the fuel/air mixture idea where relatively more air in the fuel/air mix is leaner than an intake of a fuel/air with relatively more fuel in the fuel/air mixture. This seems to be a big thing lately.

One thing those saws don't do is to let you know when the air filter is dirty. The old ones would start running poorly, so you would know to clean it out. Or at least know something was wrong.

The auto tune saws keep leaning the fuel mixture to compensate for restricted air right up until the time they run so lean it wipes out the piston,ring and cylinder.

So keep the air filter clean.

Autotune carb.. No adjusting them.

Husqvarna had a recall on them at one time due to carb and timing issues. Very hard to start cold and nearly impossible to start when hot. Quite Husqvarna years ago so I cant say if the newer ones that got a carb upgrade is better or not.

I do like the pre- autotune Husqvarna saws. Like Winchester Model 70 rifles. The pre-64's fetch top dollar while you cant get half of what you paid for a new Mod 70 that you bought a year ago today.

Oops, I assumed they were like my 576 and available both ways. I have a 550 and the autotune works pretty well,,, after 5 trips back to the dealer for software upgrades.

I have 4 different gas chain saws, from 46 years old to almost new. I mix all my fuel 3 oz to the gallon of ethanol free premium. If any of them start running less than perfect I add a little Sea Foam and it usually comes back to running perfect. I did have to change a spark plug recently, on a Stihl hand held brush cutter that my dad bought 30 years ago, I'm pretty sure it was the original plug.

Almost everyone runs somewhere between 40-1 and 50-1 and most swear they have the best answer. That tells me that either ratio or anywhere in between is OK as long as the saw is tuned correctly. Personally I run everything at 50-1 and like most everyone else I have no oil related troubles. Oil percentage does affect tuning, if you dont reset the carburetor more oil equals less fuel which equals leaner mixture which equals bad for engine. The factory says 50-1 so that is what the saw is factory tuned for. If you dont know how to properly adjust the carburetor for another ratio use 50-1 and go cut wood.

Bottom line is worry less about mix ratio and more about using the proper oil, proper tuning and keeping the fuel fresh and you are well on your way.

It's spec'd for 50-1. That doesn't mean you have to run it with a 50-1 mix. Many of us err to the side of caution and use something a little richer, int he 40-1 area. The 50-1 mix idea is an air quality thing, not what's best for longevity of the saw. I might be a good idea to have a reputable saw shop do a tune up and make sure it's set up right.

hope you got a good price. that is a professional saw. As already said 50:1. it will take up to a 24 inch bar. it should last you a long time. I had a husky 61,bought in 1988, it was a great saw but some one wanted it more than I did so they took it. now I have a 455 rancher.

My Husqvarna 359 and 394XP call for 50:1. I use 50:1 in all my other 2 cycle equipment also,Stihl and Echo brands.

You can get the manual at their website--I looked it up there and it says 50:1
