Stihl ultra

Recommended Posts

About a year ago I switched from using Stihl Super 2 stroke oil to Stihl Ultra (always mixed with premium petrol).

In that year I’ve have 2x Ms150t, 346xp, 357xp and a 441 seize.

 

Bad luck? Just seems a big coincidence.

 

Anyone elsi having issues?

Baffling. Sounds like a mixing issue but yr too experienced for that to be the case- dunno why the hell all my saws have run for ages on old Stihl red, then this new stuff arrives and saws fail  😳  k

I’ve just noticed that you can buy XP oil in 10ltr which makes it a bit cheaper than ultra, so will be switching to that. That will also keep my Husqy gimps happy

You have had failures with ultra too? So far so good here after a year or so.

 

I disliked the change from red to blue when I did it because the red gave an instant check that the oil was there whereas I find it harder to notice the blue.
