Manual it is then ,.. I know its thinner oil, but do you maybe pump it too much just to be on the safe side for the chain Doggy?

That's odd, mine seems to have that facility built in!

The new chain oils are bio-friendy (perhaps the trees feel no pain?) and Husky are death on old sump oil. But then they're not selling it so...?

i use cooking oil for my chainsaw. It is far cheaper than proper chain oil and better for the environment. Be careful . It will gum up if not used regularly - a few squirts of WD40 will free it up again though!!!

I use waste oil in the Landie - must be filtered well. Waste oil burners are great - a mate of mine uses one all the time - he has 70 lorries to feed it though!!!

Dunno but it's been the way for a number of years.
