    Thanks for taking the time Magnus.

    Makes sense.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Synthetic and semi synthetic oils is nothing new. But knowledge and awareness about oils is higher today.
    Products are often a bit more sensitive to what you feed them.
    There has always been different oils for water cooled two-strokes versus air cooled.

    Thanks guys, I think I will sell it to some collectors. If anyone wants a can, message me, if that is an ok thing to do on this forum. That being said, is there a thread regarding using new oil in old Stihl (1980s) saws? What ratio should be used, etc.

    You can run old saws on new oil at40 or 50 to one. We used to run dirt bikes and chainsaws at 100 to one on Amsoil back in the 8os with no problems.

    I know people who had one jug with 32 to one and another with 50 to one. The oil has gotten better. No need for that.

    I was told by a girl with a pound of metal in her face that new oil will cause old saws to explode into a great flash of rainbows and hippy tears.

    If you have more cans than you can spend here you might do good post them on chainsawcollectors.se
    I am there is interest for them to put on shelf by the saws.
