STIHL chainsaws are made to deliver the kind of performance that professionals need. STIHL bar and chain oil is made specifically for your STIHL chainsaw, keeping it protected and running smooth like the well-oiled machine it is.

Without the proper lubricant, the average amount of use that a guide bar, saw chain and sprocket should be able to provide would certainly be shortened.

STIHL lubricants have been formulated to allow STIHL products to break in without any special procedures, such as running a rich oil mixture or operating at specific RPM for a certain amount of time.

    More power in all my Fuel Mix Engines
    I tried out the HP Ultra oil to get the extended warranty on my pole pruner, Hedge Trimmer and Blower. They run great with this oil, no super bad odor, no blue smoke, just smooth running engines, BUT what I didn't expect was when I fed it to a 13 year old Husqvarna String Trimmer that had run on Husk'ie oil its whole life. just the beginning of the tank through the machine and it magically picked up what I would estimate to be about 200 RPM and ran much better than before. WOW!! I always use ... read more fresh gas 91RON and factory oil in my machines, so this was a shock!! I expect that STIHL engines would run well on it, but I was shocked about the performance gains in the 13 year old trimmer!!!! I will never run anything else in any of my engines. HP Ultra is well worth the marginal increase in cost.

    The best there is.
    I've been using motor oils for years now on my RC plane gas engine and none got to the results this oil did. The engine is cleaner than ever, no carbon on the pistons, the spark plug is very clean but, wet, so the engine is NOT running lean, the exhaust ports are very clean like the day Ive got the engine, and I can tell you this after running more than 35 Gal with it . Before that I ran a different kind of oil, a premium style, that left a lot of carbon in the engine, the STIHL cleaned it all.

    Expensive but Impressive So Far
    I stated using Stihl Ultra Synthetic 2 stroke oil last year. I use it not only in my Stihl equipment but also in equipment from other manufacturers. Previously, I was using the Stihl Premium 2 cycle oil and 91 octane gas. I stated having quite a few carb issues with this mix in the last 2 years so my dealer suggested given the Ultra version a try. Since I started using it, I have noticed: easier starts, better fuel efficiency, increased power and performance, and it appears to be cleaning out ... read more carbon deposits as it works as well. All in all, the oil is expensive but from my experiences, it seems to be worth it.

    Good product, avoid at low temperatures
    My boss bought this stuff for our crew because we go through 40 to 50 (or more) gallons of bar oil per work season and none of us liked the idea of spraying petroleum all over the forest. I also bought some for myself for other cutting jobs and I like it a lot. However, in temps lower than -15 F, it's too viscous and doesn't lubricate well. I switched back to regular cold weather oil after scorching the bar on my 362. It also smokes if your chain is dull and you're running the saw fast (had a ... read more coworker do this often)...cold weather oil does that too if run in warm air temps. However, in normal conditions it smells interesting, does a good job lubricating the saw, supposedly breaks down quickly, and landowners like the idea of it...good stuff!

    healthier for me, lubes the saw well
    Unfortunately pricey. Any chainsaw sprays you with bar oil. I like the fact that I smell like french fries at the end of the day rather than petroleum. I would rather breath and bathe in vegetable oil than petrol. The oil washes out of your clothes easily with no residual smell in an ordinary wash. The saw seems to like it just fine. It seems to have a higher viscosity and it seems to use less, but I have not done a scientific side by side test with the regular bar lube. Hard to find product, ... read more dealers are not stocking it.

    BBQ smoking wood
    I cut and use wood for BBQ smoking and always fret about using petroleum based bar oils in regards to health and taste. I've considered using vegetable oil but was not sure which oil to use and how it would perform in a chainsaw. Seeing as how Stihl has their brand on this stuff, I have no doubt that this is what I've been looking for.

    For the really cold days
    I keep a quart around for the really cold days. In all honesty when the saw is warmed up I just run the Platinum Bar Lube and I haven’t had any issues. For the really really cold days this does flow better through the pump and onto the bar. It protects well but I switch when the temperature gets above 20F.

    Winter Bar & Chain Oil Will Flow When Your Coffee's Frozen !
    I use Winter Bar & Chain Oil in place of Platinum Bar & Chain Oil on the coldest of cutting days. The summer Oils will turn to molasses or jello at some point. The end result of that could be a "toasted" Bar! If you are still using Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil, your switch-over to Winter Bar & Chain Oil should occur sooner as it thickens quicker than Platinum Bar & Chain Oil will at a given temperature. Remember, the newer Saws deliver less Oil to the Bar & Chain than the older models do, so ... read more your switch-over point may be more critical depending which Oil & Saw you have. Stihl, please color-code these Oils so we know what is in our Saw!!!

    My favorite 2 cycle oil
    This oil is excellent. My Stihl equipment runs so much better with this oil. I recommend this oil to anyone.

    Wonderful product.
    Started using this oil when I bought my first stihl chainsaw in 2004 . love it ! Have never had any problems with it . where I live the synthetic oil cost about the same but I still use HP oil. See no need to change . Unless you have a 4-mix engine this oil will work great .

    Great Non-Synthetic Oil
    I purchased this oil to use with my first Stihl tool (hedge trimmer that was well used 12 months a year in Miami). I was impressed with the ease of use with the pre-measured containers and the performance in the machine. I’ve used it with 93 Octane and with 100LL Aviation Fuel with great results. It seems to protect the motors in the hot weather of South Florida without any issues and the price is right. I have since discovered the HP Ultra Synthetic which I run now after buying the 2 Stihl ... read more tool to extend the warranty. The HP Ultra is marginally more expensive but seems to smoke less. I’ve never had an issue with the High Performance oil so it’s lived up to its claims of protecting the machine, but for me, the slightly more expensive HP Ultra is the way to go for my equipment. That being said, the STIHL High Performance oil outperformed all the other oils I’ve tried to that point. I’m never using the Huskie brand oil ever again in any machine I will or do own again and I’m not sure you would be able to find a better Natural Dinosaur Juice Oil for your 2-stroke.

    A pleasure to use no hassles!
    In the heat of summer the sides of this gas can do not suck into itself like shrink rap. Very thick material. Very easy to pour and no leaks. The best nozzle I have ever used. I love that I can see through to the level of gas. I never thought I would give a review on a gas can. but I just love it!

    This can is TOUGH!
    This can will withstand the wear & tear of working in the woods. The cap is a bit hard to remove because of the serrations on it that are designed to keep it from working loose, but a little practice makes it easier. The handles make it easy to dispense or carry. One should make certain they depressurize the contents prior to fueling. Pressurization can result due to exposure to heat. Failure to do so may cause a rapid, unwanted ejection of fuel. This may be accomplished by depressing the ... read more plunger briefly before tipping the can for fueling. I suggest an optional model marked or colored for TWO-CYCLE MIX.

    Chuck your other gas cans!
    A glowing review of a gas can? Yes sir! Other spill-mitigation systems can be cheap, difficult to use, and easy to break. I've gone through several. But this one? Push the button. No twisting cheap plastic rings into cheap plastic grooves and praying it doesn't break, no frustration at all actually, and I love the clear stripe that lets you see exactly how much gas is in the thing. It's a point-and-push operation.

    Platinum Protection for my Equipment
    I’m running this in all of my saws and it’s the best I’ve ever seen. It’s a clear color so pay attention when filling the tank, but the performance is top shelf! I’ve used it well below freezing and it flows just fine, especially when the Saw is good and warm. It protects in both the hot/humid weather and the cold. I do t use separate bar lines for cold weather any more. Just the platinum for all conditions! It does not clog up my tank or pump either. The tackiness is great and it stays in place ... read more very well even at high chain speeds. All in all it’s the best chain/bar Lube I’ve ever used and it’s well worth the modest cost difference.

    Excellent Product
    I have tried cheaper brands with poor results. This oil keeps the chain oiled and bar cooler.

    Platinum Bar Oil is a CUT-ABOVE the Rest !
    I was skeptical at first browse of this product. I thought, at the time, there was no good reason to swap from my many years of using Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil. This is my first year using Platinum Bar & Chain Oil. What I have discovered is that it takes less overall quantity of this Oil to achieve the same level of lubrication provided by it's predecessor. Another benefit is this Oil is not as temperature-sensitive as the Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil is. In other words, it will perform ... read more satisfactorily at somewhat lower temperatures before you ultimately need to switch over to Winter Bar & Chain Oil. It will take you some time to get used to having less visible Oil on your Chain, but the proof of proper lubrication is a cool-running Bar that isn't burning the paint off! However, if you have one of the newer Saws, be prepared to turn-up the Oil Quantity setting to near maximum level...even when using Platinum Bar & Chain Oil. I found the "E" setting on my new MS-362,461, & 661 to be too lean with 20", 25", & 32" Bars, respectively. So, I guess this means that the Woodcutter Bar & Chain Oil may be an unsatisfactory choice for proper lubrication on the newer Saws with lower-volume Oil Pumps & newer Bars with smaller Oil Delivery Holes.
