    It's a Husky saw, I bought in 1997...I think the warranty is out of play.

    You know, I don't even know why I assumed it was a Stihl saw. Getting old is heck. I'm starting to scare myself.

    Well, I did say it was Stihl oil. Don't know why, but my Husky has always run smoother on Stihl oil than it has on anything else, including Husky oil.

    Don't know who told you that but if Stihl will only warranty if you use their oil they would have to supply it for free I think.

    My wife works at a stihl dealer. The ultra oil is not required but if you buy a 6 pack of the oil with your stihl, stihl will double the warranty. And no, they do not do any test for it for warranty work.

    I didn't think a manufacturer could say what you have to use??

    I know when I bought my stihl saw 8 yrs ago I think it said to use stihl oil a5 50:1 and if u use anything else I think it said to double that amount of oil!!!!
