What’s in the green bottle?

Conventional Bar Chain Oil (Orange) and Bioplus (Green)

That’s Stihl’s new Bioplus bar chain oil. It is derived from vegetable oils and is one brand of many new bio-oils developed as a substitute for conventional (petroleum) based bar chain oil. We are phasing out the use of conventional bar chain oil in favor of the new biological oils in our chainsaws. Although it is a little more expensive (2x cost of conventional), it is a small price overall. The net result will be that any spatter or spray of oil in your yard from the revolving chain will be mere vegetable oil instead of petroleum. It is a self-evidently good thing to do for our customers and their natural landscapes and we are happy to make this change for the better.
