Are you saying your running 50:1 in a newer 5020 poulan and if you went to 40:1 would you need to adjust carb?   

If you are tuned right on with 50:1 and went to 40:1 without tuning it could be little lean or not. Seen both.  Just adjust the carb to mix ratio being used. 
But if your tuned fat at 50:1 and go to 40 you might notice it running better.

----------------------------------

Going backwards here. I tune all saws that comes in with 40:1. I tell folks this.  I have only ever had to retune 2 that come back because folks ran 50:1 and with their mix saw was tuned to fat.

Hope all of that makes since.

I was just wondering about, i have 2 chainsaws. One is a little poulan from the 70s and one is a newer poulan one from a couple of years ago. I was curious if you could adjust a new one to 40:1 that would normally run modern 50:1, Thanks.

Yep. 

My new poulan 2013 I swear even came with 40:1 mix bottle. I dont ever recall a poulan saying run 50. I could be wrong though.

Yep page 10 40:1 https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/pdfImages/61/61edc374-df0a-4c2f-935e-cfb6d6cbc188.pdf

I think I may have a newer 4218 I took on trade still. I will see what it has on it.

2017 4218 manual does say 50:1 on it  https://www.poulanpro.com/us/support/owners-manuals/

Nothing on the newer yellow 4218 I have. But I adjusted it to 40:1 when it came in. Takes a spine tool or redneck bic pen ;)
