Sounds like a reasonable use for waste oil, we use a shop heater that burns used oil.

I guess Yoopers use more chainsaw bar oil than the rest of use do. LOL


Best of luck. ....

Pretty clever idea, I guess you just have to watch the chain oil level more often?

With regular chain oil it seems to last for a full tank of fuel, so I just refill both at the saem time.

When I change Hydro fluid it is so clean it seams a waste to discard it. ....

That’s why you add the stock oil treatment because that stuff helps raise the viscosity. Stop is thick and sticky. ....

Tbear,

I was responding to Kthompsons comment about a cheating spouse and autocomplete in spellcheck on computers. I typed STD (sexually transmittied Disease) instead of STP, and the puns were my attempt at humor along those lines.

I like your idea and I am going to try your approach with my waste oil this year with the STP you used not the STD in my bungled humor :-(

Argonaut ....
