I was at the local Dolmar/Echo dealer today and he had a customer's 6800 in the shop. It had a hole burned through the oil tank.

With the 6800, the oil tank is part of the plastic rear handle - gas tank assembly. I have not had my 6800 tank off and had never noticed this?

The hole burned in the oil tank is the same story as always - The muffler retention bolt area of the muffler was bad and allowed the muffler to leak out the bottom seam.

So this saw is going to need a muffler and a tank assembly if they can find them.

Your 6000i / 6800i has the same plastic tank set up?  If so I never noticed it when looking it over.

You know, I had never noticed but that's the way all the 6000/6800's are made with the oil tank included with the handle. They must have had a few burn through with the two piece muffler?

The replacement model 6400/7300/7900 chainsaw handle assembly, terminates at the front AV spring. The oil tank is with the crankcase.

I mean was yours plastic? I never noticed that.  I knew about the dolmar oil / fuel tank deal.

Here is a dolmar 166 metal oil / fuel tank I had to split to repair.

I went out to the shop and looked. Sure enough, the oil tank is part of the PLASTIC handle/gas tank assembly. It is sort of tucked in behind the starter cover and not noticeable that it is separate from the crankcase.

Plastic or Metal?  Thats all I was trying to see. Being I never noticed it being plastic.
