I ran it since it was shindaiwa red armor
8 year's or so ago
Excellent oil but it basically tripled in price
Locally.

I have used Yamalube for years with no issues. When I was racing I would often win a case of Yamalube. So after awhile I had too much oil sitting around not doing any good. It was designed for Yamaha products. It works well in Stihl Husqvarna and even Honda's. Thanks

Mix ratios are a good thing. I use them whenever I can. :)
We need to get you checked out, talking to yourself again?
Being alone in the wilds of AK does this to people look at the ak bush brown family. There kind of wild, they howl at the moon, there next generation will be feral. Lol. Godbless

I wanted to move to AK 45 years ago. We stayed here because we had family here now they have passsed on and we’re alone anyway. My point is to follow your dreams don't let anyone change them. Being successful isn’t being rich it’s surrounding yourself with family and loved ones. Loving your job too.

I've been using Motul 800 2T, but from things I've read, this castor based oil is great for high temp dirt bikes but may not combust well in a chainsaw. Opinions?

If I fry bacon. Can I mix the left over grease after I cook my eggs in it at 32:1?? Will my saws run ok mixed 32:1 with 100 octane fuel and bacon grease? My only worries are that the grease will turn solid in my fuel in cold temps. Is this really something I should worry about? I’m thinking 100 octane and bacon grease will smell quite nice which would obviously add to the enjoyment of running the saw.

Easy fix... Power Service Diesel Kleen will keep the grease from gelling at cold temps.
