    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 conventional oil.
    I have run many a gallon of fuel with this oil. It has great lubricity. It is very clean running if the equipment is adjusted properly. And when mixed with 89 octane non ethanol gas it has a excellent storage life. Equipment has been very dependable while using Sthil HP. And the price is very reasonable, when compared to other big name brands. And this product is readly avabile in most areas. I can even purchase it at a local General Store near my home.

    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.

    Another winner!
    I own all Stihl yard tools. I love each and every one, but I,m also glad to save money when I can. I own 2 saws and I now use Woodcutters oil in both. It works great and I appreciate the savings.

    Awesome "cling-ability"
    This bar oil is a cut above the rest. Works well in all temperatures. Does a great job in hardwoods where other oils fall short.

    Only Bar Oil I Use
    I have been using this bar oil in all my saws. I do not see any premature wear on my bar or chain.

    Great for home owner
    I switched from mixed fuel to motomix this spring for my kombi trimmer and power sweep, I used only 3 cans from march 2015 to October 2015 so it was not that expensive for me to operate my equipment this season. I think it has excellent value for the home owner. For heavy use it might cost to much. Also I run this in my 20 year old homelite super 2 chainsaw and the performance over mixed fuel was very noticeable. It starts easier and much more power. Ill continue to use this product.

    No Ethanol
    The main benefit is that this is 100% gasoline . Not 10% Ethanol like what goes into your car. Ethanol breaks down so what you pumped into your gas can 3 months ago is not what comes out today. This is not a problem for your car becuase you are refilling somtimes twice a week. But it is not good for a chainsaw that has been sitting for several months. Over time the ethanol evaporates which causes the octane level to drop. Add in the fact that you don't have to mix the oil and it will sit on ... read more your shelf for 2 years and be as good as the day you purchased it.

    Great product, but expensive
    Stihl was really smart coming out with this Moto mix. I wrecked a FS46 because of bad gas. Stihl Moto mix is basically all I run in my MS250 and my new FS50c. I have noticed more power and better fuel economy when I use Moto mix. My only complaint is this stuff is too expensive, but in the long run it might be worth it. Like I said I wrecked a FS46 with ethanol gas. One key thing I have noticed about Stihl products is read the Manuel and shop around not all dealers are the same. I do recommend ... read more Moto mix I can see the difference in my tools performance.

    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.

    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.

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

    According to the pros, this is the best
    I was at the pro chainsaw place and got to talking about bar oil. He said that Stihl is changing bar oil types. The winter blend is still in the blue bottle. But now there are two summer grades. The lower priced bottle now contains a cheaper “woodcutter” lube which the chainsaw guy says is inferior to anything else on the market. He said that it is worse than the independent oil, which is only slightly inferior to Stihl. I do volunteer cutting for the County and would rather buy the better Stihl ... read more bar oil than accept free gallons of the Woodcutter bar oil. In the wintertime I transition to the winter grade of Stihl that is in the blue bottle.

    Top Notch Bar Oil
    For the little extra price you pay up front over the bargain oils its worth it. Nice cling on the chain. Doesn't build up in a gooey mess all over the saw. Never have smelled a hot bar or chain when cutting.

    Excellent Product...you get what you pay for...
    Sure. There are less expensive products out there. But the reason we all bought Stihl equipment is because it's simply the best! Right? So, uhhhh...why would anybody want to cheap things out with cheaper lubricants? I just don't get this! I've put a lot of bar & chain oil thru my saws over the years, never a problem. My chains don't get all stretchy, don't require a heck of a lot of adjustment. This is good stuff. Don't save a couple of bucks by using something designed for an inferior piece ... read more of equipment! Just sayin'!

    Best gas can on the market
    Great gas can my friend and I run a small landscaping company and back when we got our first Stihl products he purchased a 1 gallon can it works great. With more clients and equipment the need for a larger container be came a necessity. I recently purchased a 2.5 gallon container and it works great.

    Best gas can for smaller equipment
    Have used one of these for 2-3 years and I love it. Been using it for my chains saws, string trimmer, and pole saw and not over filled once, this is the only no spill type of container I've used and liked. A must have for anyone who has to refuel a lot.

    Great can!
    Wow I gave away all my other gas cans. I am tired of no spill cans not working. This one works great. Very good engineering. I am very happy with how it works. This is the most expensive gas can I have seen but it works great.
