I had a couple like that :D Fill the oil and check the gas. After years in the repair shop I want the best oil I can get and go with the manufacturers recommendations. I use Stihl Ulta 'cuz that is what the local dealer carries.

On a serious note which I don't normally do there are some benefits of synthetic oil .I use it on all of my newer stuff and change it frequently .
By the same token I've torn down 50 year old saws that you know darn well were ran on outboard boat motor oil probably at 16 or 20 to 1 ratio and they were clean as a pin .Then 20 year old Stihls ran on modern mix oils that had black on the crank case which is in effect pyralighted oil  which in effect is petro coke .Why I have no idea .
    Crankcase oil is better than it used to be .In the 60's when I was a teenager it wasn't uncommon on those small block Chevys and Y block Fords to need a rebuild after 60-70 thousand miles .Now of days it's not uncommon to get 200  thousand miles .Yet on tractor engines ran on non detergent oils and would run almost forever those engines were clean as a pin and many didn't even have oil filters .Of course those were slow running engines with larger cooling systems than automobiles .

. :D It might even morph into a bar oil thread after a while .That could prove to be enlightening .
I use the same oil in both, less confusing  :D

What amazes me about oil threads,  engine or bar is how many times cost comes up. Truth of the matter is most home/farm/hobby saws dont get used enough for it to matter. $50 a year for the best oils or $25 for baragin basement.  Where  my son in law works they buy 2 stroke oil in 55 gallon drums, the price per unit would make a common man faint but the cost to fill one of those little 3.2 oz bottles I buy would be pretty low,, anyone want to share a drum???? ;D

I had an old Ford truck that used some oil. Only got 8 miles to the gallon,did not matter if there was a almost a cord of wood in the back or empty. Ther was a stop sign at a bottom of a hill,speed limit only 35 mph. Someone would get behind me trying to do 45 mph. Down shift to a lower gear coming down that hill,they would back off and do 35. :D That think would smoke!!!  Never went no more than an hour from home. And that hour could almost be counted on one hand for a year. It was a wood hauler.

I've got a buddy who is a tree trimmer/arborist who is very loyal to Stihl products . He cut a deal with a local dealer and buys bar oil by pallet load and mix oil by the case lots  .I on the other hand buy bar oil by the gallon and mix oil by the 6 pack of little bottles . I do buy beer by the case though if that accounts for anything .
 Then you've got still others who use old crankcase oil black as the ace of spades. Others who use a concoction of old gear lube that smells to high heavens thinned with salvaged hydraulic fluid and diesel fuel .Not to mention the cooking/salad oil crowd with or without the addition of "hidden valley ranch " dressing .I guess they all work just some better that others obviously .

Forever I've used the stihl fossil oil. Recently moved to the synthetic oil. I don't see any difference now but will later on maybe. Folks use all different kinds of oil. I guess If what a person uses is working no need to change.

ehp, if I could still find Klotz I would use it. I use to run it in my snowmobiles. If for no other reason than I liked the way it smells😁

The Stihl dino oil burns a little too dirty for me.  Fire arrestor screens need to be cleaned too often to suit me.  After switching to their Synthetic, I've not been into any motor since.

I don't know when they came out with the FS110, but I bought one when they first came out, and have one that has run almost full time since then, by one operator in the grass growing season.  It's never had anything in it but non-ethanol, and Stihl synthetic.  I told the guy running it that when it ever quits, I won't open it up.  We'll just bury it.
