We use food grade hydraulic (FGH) oil 32 weight in all the saws that we maintain at the local junior college. We get it at the local petroleum distributor for $14 a gallon.

   I have tried the feed stores and it is $22 a gallon. Too much to feed my saws. I am trying to find an oil distributor but no luck on mineral oil so far.   thanks

Walmart, small bottles but is the cheapest wsy for me. I add a bottle of baby oil so it smells better. Also a a cup or less of Bardahl No Smoke to control misting.

Neal. Did a search for the Duoprime 90 (food grade white mineral oil) that we use. A supply company's web site said they get it from Citgo. Saw that there are stores in your area listed as Citgo gas dealers, so any of them should be able to give you a name for their oil company supplier.

This oil runs about $90 for 5 gallons here. It's lower viscosity than the Walmart mineral oil, and the flash point was listed as 351 degrees. It's the only oil we've used since we found it...  .

We only have one supplier here, so good luck on your search.

Not sure if they raised prices I bought 16 gals from SCA last year and got it for 12 a gallon, might be a quantity break and same free shipping.

I purchased my four gals on April of 2014 and it was $14 then.  I keyed in 16 gals to my cart and it came up at $14/gal.  Maybe the break comes after you commit to buy.  Anyway, I don't think that's a bad price at 14/gal.

I sent them an email asking about a price break for quantity.  I'll see what they say and post it.

I think someone who's using the scahealth oil also posted that it's thinner than the Walmart product. Maybe all the equine products are less viscous.

I tried the Walmart oil in a 10-inch and didn't like it. It was too thick. Sounds like the scahealth oil is the way to go.
