    Dolmar says their saw should use their own 2 stoke oil at 50:1 but other bands at 40:1. I use Stihl oil for
    my Stihl which is 50:1 Do I need to have 2 gas can. I have put 2 tank fulls of gas though the Dolmar before seeing the differant mix ratios. It ran good. Two differant mixes would be a PIA

    Nope, there's no need for two cans of mix! Stihl oil is good oil, and that's all that Dolmar is really concerned with since "other brands of oil" that a guy might use could be anything. You'll be A-OK running Stihl oil at 50:1 in your Dolmar.

    he is right unless it is under warranty. Maybe its an old saw, then the stihl oil is fine.
