    I did my Chainsaw licence a few years back at the Dorset college of agriculture, the college used Husqvarna chain oil because it was vegetable oil and environmentally friendly. A lot of professional chainsaw users I have talked to use cooking oil to lube the chain as it is significantly cheaper and the chains last just as long.

    Are you confusing O ring with a continuous chain? A split or rivet link, O ring or X ring chain is fine to use and will likely last longer than a OEM continuous chain.

    Good old post revival....
