Tanaka ECS 351 chainsaw

I got this chainsaw given to me, it has no manual. I am use to mixing oil with the gas as you normally do in a 2 cycle engine. This chainsaw has a tank for gas and a tank for oil. Does the 2 cycle oil go into the tank that says oil instead of mixing it with the gas, hope someone can help. Thanks Jim

Have you ever used a chainsaw before?? They can be a VERY dangerous machine in the hands of an inexperienced operator. Please be VERRY careful.. You mix the fuel & 2 stroke oil for the fuel tank part of the saw.. The oil tank is to have a bar & chain lube put in it for lubricating the cutting chain... Please have an experienced person instruct you on using this equipment as it takes some skill to use it safely. As always, Understand the machine & the conditions it to be used in & be careful!!!!
