Bio chain/bar oil???????

Recommended Posts

welwell   

I know this has been covered before, but I need to get some new bar/chain oil.

At the moment I use sthil bio-oil, which I think is very good but also VERY expensive. I am keen to stay with the bio-oil route but wondered if there are any cheaper recommendations you guys/gals can suggest.

Years ago I used some well dodgy Oregon stuff, it was green/white in colour and really runny (almost like water)...didn't rate it.

Suggestions please......I'm running really low.......as usual left it to the last minute to order in new stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!

is that the same stuff as the aspen guys sell? if not it might be worth speaking to anglo american oils i seem to remember them saying they did bio oil at the APF i did have a leaflet on their products but cant find them anyway their website is http://www.aaoil.co.uk

 

FTR i use stihl bio oils and buy 20ltrs at a time but its still not cheap

We can do the Bio oil for £55.00 per 20 litres

Or the Stihl Semi synthetic for £28.73 per 20 litres

 

Hope this helps

 

Is that the Sthil bio for £55??

I'll be in touch!!

And I know this has also been covered in the past...but what do we all think of veggie oil from the supermarket as chain lube???

 

I use rapeseed oil from the supermarket. Has the good viscosity, even in cold weather. Wouldn't use the other kinds of vegetable oil though. Only con is that it polymerizes after a while and gets 'sticky'. So if your chainsaw won't run for a while, you'll need to clean it well.
