    I have just purchased a chain saw. On looking at the diagram you put petrol in the front tank and oil in the rear. In the hand book, oil in the front, petrol in the back. they come across the same thing?
    Its very confusing :?: .
    If anyone has a Ryobi chain saw .Having come across the same thing.

    Chain bar oil in the forward tank,and fuel in the back one.
    Usually the caps are marked but they can be the same size - and get switched over!

    Yes as above, chain oil in the front one (next the chain/bar) and a fuel and OIL mixture in the back one.

    Don't FORGET to mix 2-Stroke oil with the fuel.

    Not a bad little saw, but the plastic gear wheel that secures the chain bar and allows chain tensioning is very much on the flimsy side......always press the plastic gears together firmly to prevent the teeth stripping.
    Unfortunately there's no modification available - just a new complete bar plate (£36).
