Smile Chainsaw - Homelite 240

I have a Homelite 240 which is about 20 years old or more. What is the best 2 cycle mix ratio to use? 32:1 or 40:1

Also, -- what is the best gas treatment to use for all this Ethanol based gas? Sta-Bil Ethanol Treatment or Lucas Ethanol Fuel Stablizers?

Twenty years ago I would use 32:1 since the oil you mix with the gas would be different than the oil you have available today. 40:1 will work fine, using a good grade of two stroke oil.

I use Stabil, but Lucas is high quality in a lot of products.
