I would use a high quality Bar and chain Lube, available at any saw shop, (My choice is Stihl) If you go other supplier make sure it has anti-sling properties, as this stuff is worth the difference in chain and bar life.
Next time you get some rub between your fingers and slower pull apart, and watch how it clings together, compare different brands and regular motor oil like this and you can tell a difference.
We used to watch how the oil would come off the bar while it was running, cheap stuff in drops and good stuff in what looked like tiny threads.
Thats when we had manual oilers and could pump it out.
Do not use used motor oil as no antisling properties and even on the can it says "used oil causes cancer" You do not want to be vaporizing this stuff and breathing it.
But check manual to be on safe side, but I wouldn't expect otherwise.

What is the correct fuel/oil mixture for an older Eager ****** 16 inch chain saw?


It really depends on the model number of your Eager Beav er unit. Anything within the last 6 years is 50 to 1 older models can be anywhere from 25 to 1, to 32 - 1 up to 40 - 1. t all depends on the model number.

The usual fuel mixture is 40 - 1 or 3.2 oz. per gallon.

Your chain saw would have to be pre-1995 to use a mixture greater than 40-1. If your chain saw is other than that then use a 32 - 1 ratio. 4.oz per gal.

This is a great fuel mixture calculator:

If you know your model number you can use this page to get an owners / operators manual:

16" Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw...


I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality "Bar and Chain Oil" will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.

You can get the "Bar and Chain Oil" at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.

What type of oil is used in the remington 16" chain saw?


From page 9 of a M12510US (bar oil is SAE 30 with additives to help it adhere to the bar and chain):
FILLING OIL TANK
1. Remove oil cap.
2. Fill oil tank with SAE #30 motor oil. Note: For temperatures below 30°F, use SAE #10 oil. For temperatures above 75°F, use SAE #40 oil. 3. Replace oil cap at once. Tighten oil cap firmly for good seal. This will avoid oil seepage from tank.
4. Wipe off excess oil.
Note: It is normal for oil to seep when saw is not in use. Empty oil tank after each use to prevent seepage.

This is one of the most complete "Owners Manuals" Remington offers. If not your saw you can find your manual here:

What type of oil is used in electric chiansaw


The oil to use for the chain is called BAR OIL and if there is anything that might be universal, it is BAR OIL. You can use BAR OIL on electric and non electric saws alike. Self sharpening and non-self shaprening chains. Any manufacturer. It is BAR OIL.

Do not use any other kind of oil in your saw. BAR OIL is particularly sticky and hangs on to the chain even while cutting the wood at high speed.

What type of oil do I use for a Remington Electric Pole Saw?


While Bar Chain oil will probably work, the owners manual (sitting in front of me) on page 9 says to "use SAE #30 motor oil". This is the owners manual for Models: M12510US, M15012US, M15014US, M15014AS, M30016US, M30016AS, M30016AW, M35016UW, M35016AW. Remington Electric Chain Saw

Oil for remington 3HP 16" chain saw.


The oil for an electric saw would only be for lubricating the bar, so you would only need to buy bar oil.
