    K2 is a great oil, but there are others that work great in saws. Yam 2R, Citgo Aircooled, Husky Silver bottle and most any oil that is actually FD certified.

    Make sure you use 2R. I never liked 2S, even when used in injection systems.

    Should be purplish color, unless they have changed it.

    Hey wondering if any of you guys have experience (good or bad) on the husqvarna XP+ mix oil? The company I just came to work with supply all of the mix oil and this is what they have, I’ve never used this particular stuff before. Thanks for any info you guys can give.

    What oil smells the best ? I tried some vp 40:1 premix and it smelled like a top fuel dragster, which i liked but dont trust it to really be 40:1 in my ported saws. I tried some generic semi sythetic oil mixed at 40:1 with e-free and it smelled like burning gear oil/dog crap.

    There is a oil that is French that smells like strawberries. lol
    Used in snow sleds.
    There is nothing wrong with that VP Fuel 2 stroke oil. Use it with confidence.

    Is that the oil mix or the canned fuel you speak of? I used the canned.

    I have used both. But I was referring to the VP Fuel 2 stroke oil in the bottles. I run between 36:1 and 32:1 for my mix. Burns clean.
