Woodland Pro or Efco mix oils any good?
« on: November 14, 2010, 09:38:55 PM »
I know I read some comments on here in the past about Woodland Pro synthetic or Efco 2-cycle mix oils, but I can't seem to find them with the search function.

Are these oils any good? I've been using either the Husky "XP" oil or the Stihl premium stuff (both gray bottles, if I recall correctly). Just wondering if WP or Efco are worth trying.

John, It would not surprise me if both oils did not come from the same distillery.I personally use Amsoil at 40/1 and am pleased with the results.If this brand is not available in your area why not use Husky or Stihl oil? All three brands mentioned have a good track record. I am unable to answer your original question but their are several options. Ken
