Oils & Lubricants

A selection of oils to keep your engine and saw chain running smoothly

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.

    Excellent product for the serious user.
    I started using HP ULTRA STIHL Engine oil when gasoline started adding Ethanol. Since I switched to Premium Gasoline and HP ULTRA, I have had 90-95% less starting problems and overall maintenance to my STIHL chainsaws. It may cost a little more, BUT what you save in repair costs far outweigh the price. HP ULTRA is all I ever use in my STIHL equipment. GREAT product!

    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.

    good oil
    I started using this oil when it first came out, its the only oil that the local store sells, its not that much higher in price, over the lower grade of oil, the only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn'e have much color to the gas when mixed, whish Stihl would make it a darker color.

    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.

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

    The only 2 cycle oil I use in my chainsaws and weedeater
    I use Stihl Performance Oil in all my tools - 009, 044, MS 660 and FS85 Pro and I have not had any motor issues, all still have great compression with very little smoke from the exhaust. The 009 and 044 are 15 years + old and both have had 1 spark plug change in all this time.I check the plugs every month, nice brown tint indicating a good burn of the fuel and oil. I have replaced bars and chains numerous times as these saws get worked every other week but the motors run like new. Very pleased ... read more with this oil......

    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.

    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.

    Best cans ever
    I now own five of these cans. I use them for fueling all my equipment. The reason I have so many is that I keep extra fuel on hand for our generator due to outages. I also put them on the trailer for snowmobile trips up north. They are excellent and don't leak at all. They don't even leak when hauled around in the back of my truck. The best thing is that you can position them properly and then just press the button to start the flow of fuel. No more messes!

    Best fuel container on the market hands down.
    I have purchased ten of these containers, 4 one and one quarter gallon, 4 of the five gallon and 2 of the two and one half gallon size. They work just as described. No spill I donated seven of these and kept a 1 1/4 and 2 fives for my self. On my fives I usually put in 3 to 4 gallons as it is easier to lift. and then as I empty one I can switch to the other one for my mower and pressure washer. I like the 1 1/4/. The small nozzle is just right for my chain saws, blower, edger and weedeater.

    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.

    Good product, but pricey
    I like this oil for it's health and environmental benefits. It also has very good cold flow characteristics. The regular oil flows very slowly and is hard to poor in winter conditions. This oil flows well and is easy to pour. I haven't seen any difference in wear on bar or chains through 2 gallons of use.

    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.
