try pouring a small ammount of gas into the carb and see if it will start if so then you need to make sure that the fuel lines are good, and the filter is clean. if those things check out ok then you'll probably need to clean and adjust the carb

i always like starting fluid :D

if you are using a 10% ethonol gas with your gas oil mix and letting it sit for a few months your problem could be there too

not sure if its even possible but if its popping through the carb you might want to make sure that the flywheel key didn't shear although i have never heard of that happening on a saw

Sounds like a piece of crud has the carb partially plugged. Happens, even on the first tank full if it runs completely out of fuel.:D
