AMSOIL bar and chain oil
« on: July 02, 2011, 04:50:02 pm »
Just wondered if any of the racers out there was using  Amsoil bar and chain lube and did they see any difference.

 I had found out that some of the top hotsaws and stock appearing saws were running it and had switched all my racesaws over to it.   
 The stuff seems to be so thin to pour during winter or summer and takes less energy from the saw to pump through.  Also seemed to really cling to the bar and chains.

I don't know myself .Amsoil in general at least in my opinion has a lot of hype and hoopla behind it . There may be something to it or not .

Bar oil in general speakng is nothing more than machine tool way oil .In other words oil with a a tacking agent in it ( STP ) ,kind of  like smelly gear oil without the smell .You buy something like Mobile Vacta which is Mil spec  way oil you pay through the nose for it .

Although nobody fesses up about it I do believe that "winter " grade  bar oil is just a thiner weight oil  with a tacking agent .
