    Have run about 10 tanks of canola through my 2 main saws. Thanks those who have suggested this!

    I have noticed no ill effects, but should I run some "regular" stuff through periodically to prevent coagulation or other problems?

    If I'm planning to store the saw for a couple months, I usually run the 'regular' stuff for the last couple of tanks.

    Odd observation - grain oil ( canola ) in one tank is good but grain fuel (usually corn) is largely frowned upon. Just seems weird in a way.

    I would just make sure to not let it sit for extended periods of time because it might go rancid.
