Homelite XL Chainsaw


My saw has another hole in the gas tank other than the one for the fuel line. Its on the outside corner of the tank towards the top(the pull rope side) Should there be something in it like a plug? It is spitting gas out when it runs.

did the hole get knocked in their? If gas is comming out while running . This is not for chain oil . That wouldn't be going in the gas ? I have had that brand and only the gas line . the oil for the chain i belive is moved to the bar by crank case preasure. Thro a line to the chain by the clutch. And some have the push button for extra oil. Look up the model of the saw in google and see what you can come up with.

I don't think so. It looks like its a factory hole. Possibly for venting?

If you could post a picture that would help a lot.
