562xp chainsaw
« on: February 09, 2013, 02:23:08 am »
can anyone tell me how much fuel a husqvarna 562xp auto tune should use, like how long with a full tank mine seems to be going through a lot of fuel

They burn more fuel when you are running synthetic Stihl Ultra at 32:1

They are supposed to be conservative on fuel but the 562 is the most powerful chainsaw of the series with the same size tank and it burns more fuel if you are used to the 555.

Is the saw stock or running without gasket?

What saw are you comparing it to about the fuel usage. A 60 cc will use a decent amount of fuel.

Fuel usage should be close to the 455.  A hair more at most.  Reason I asked about the gasket, an air leak will force an autotune to richen the mixture considerably to safe the engine.

would spraying carb cleaner around the intake to see if it kills the engine hurt anything being that the auto tune is there on the side of the carb
