>While we are having some good discussion regarding gasoline for chainsaws, I have some questions about chainsaw oil for mixing with the gasoline.
Some chainsaw manufacturers make, or package, their own oil for mixing with gasoline. Some oils are generic for mixing with the gasoline in a proportion recommended by the chainsaw manufacturer.
Here's my questions. I have a few gallons of 2 cycle OUTBOARD motor oil. What makes the oil OUTBOARD specific? Can it be used in non water cooled 2 cycle engines? Does the water cooled outboard motor require different oil. How different is OUTBOARD oil from 2 cycle oil?
