> canola oil from grocery..$20/5gal.

Seriously, does that really work? ???
 
I could not find my bar oil, so I used some Hyp 90 in my little electric Remington to cut some firewood stuff smaller. Besides the smell it lubed okay, I think it probably leaked the same though  :D

the only thing I ever noticed with canola was that I used a little more than "normal" bar oil in the summer.
I never met a tree I didn't like!!

I pay about $6.00 a gallon for summer or winter oil ( I buy about 15 cases at a time).
