Straight fuel (no premix) in chainsaw

Straight gas without premix was accidentally put into my chainsaw and ran for about 10 minutes when it stopped. It wasn't until after it stopped and wouldn't start that the wrong fuel was discovered. Is there any hope to fixing this problem?

It's a Poulan PRO PP4218AVX. Thanks.

Sorry, but probably not. You'll probably need a cylinder, piston, rings, gaskets and seals at the least. The parts would be more than I would put into repairing that saw, let alone the time.
