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.

    Take Care of your INVESTMENT!
    Look, Stihl power equipment deserves to be taken care of. This is especially important during break-in periods when friction & heat will be at their highest. Stihl will increase your product warranty when you purchase HP Ultra Oil in combination with your equipment purchase! Ask your dealer for details. I often wonder if I had been using this oil in my FS-550 a few years back...it wouldn't have seized up! Trust me, I do use it now in my MS-362, MS-661, BR-600, FS-460, & FS-560. That is way too ... read more much of an investment in equipment not to take care of. Friction performance is way better than standard 2-cycle mix.

    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.

    STIHL HP Ultra 2 stroke full synthetic oil
    I've bought a 6 pack of this oil with several Stihl machines I have bought, and it doubled the warranty on my machines which was awesome. It burns very cleanly and hardly puts off any smoke unless the engine is cold, it does like to drip a bit out the exhaust if you leave your engine at idle long enough but at higher speeds it burns efficiently and barely puts any wear on my engines. I recently took my Stihl BG55 apart that I ran the oil in and the rings were very well lubricated and not ... read more sticking whatsoever and the engine had no scoring on the cylinder or piston, keep in mind the engine has over 250 running hours! I put the engine back together and it still continues to power on year after year. I also use it in my 4 mix Stihl FS90R trimmer and it runs very nice with it. I recommend it for the price, it's a very high quality oil.

    It passes the TEST of TIME!
    I started using this oil in 1981. I never substituted it's use for the duration I owned an 041AVES chainsaw. That saw ran from 1981-1998 for me. It was "Stihl" running strong when I sold it! The same applies to my 066 Magnum that I ran from 1998-2017. The compression on that engine was just like the day I bought it. It was in good enough shape to get half of what I paid for it back. I ran this oil in my FS-450K Brushcutter/Clearing Saw for over 3,000 hours. I sold that old unit to a professional ... read more Christmas Tree grower who ran it for another 6 or 7 years! (The projected life of that unit was 2,000 hours.) You just can't produce results like that unless the product is great. I did step-up to Stihl HP Ultra this year when I replaced my 066 Magnum with an MS-661 R-CM. It is now in my MS-362 C-M, BR-600, FS-460 C-EM K, & FS-560 C-EM. The bottom line is that I keep coming back to Stihl products & accessories because they keep getting better & better!

    Makes Easy-Starting Fuel Mixture
    Been using this in a 40-year old Homelite chain saw. It's conventional oil, so it gets a little smoky, but I'm sticking with it. Big Bertha generally burps on the 4th or 5th pull even after it has been sitting for a loooooong time.

    Great Mixing Oil
    I have been using this oil in my Stihl products since 1999. I have two chainsaws, two weedeaters, and a blower. Everything starts after sitting for a while. I don't use the saws but once or twice a year and don't drain the fuel and never have any issues. The first saw purchased in 99 still has never even had a carb rebuild. Keep in mind this oil has a fuel stabilizer in it when comparing prices.

    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.

    Consistent Viscosity and Environmentally Friendly
    I appreciate this Bar Oil and know that I'm not getting misted with petroleum products every time I use my saw and that my saw dust can break down into mulch with no poison on my plants! I can see that old saw dust is breaking down into rich soil over time and this bar oil does not inhibit the biological process at all. Compared to other bar oils BioPlus lubricates better, stays consistent in it's viscosity through every temperature I've worked in and has very little smell. It's truly a winner ... read more of a product! I have used it for years and will continue to buy it. I do not worry about my land and the plants on it when I spread sawdust around. I know nature will take care of it. As far as My Own biology is concerned, if I avoid poisons today, it prevents health problems tomorrow. I'm willing to keep taking this step towards healthier chainsawing.

    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.

    Safer to use.
    BioPlus is a better smelling oil. Kind of smells like french fries when you really put 'er to work!

    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!!!

    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.

    Great fuel can
    I have purchased a bunch of these cans for gas, mix fuel, diesel and they're great for the simple fact that you don't spill unless you overfill. Since they don't make a can dedicated to mix fuel I use the blue kerosene one and label it mix. The only downfall is I've had a handful of o-rings fall off into the can without knowing causing it to leak when filling machines but that could have just been my guys being careless screwing the spout on early in the morning.

    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.
