Used motor oil will work just fine for lubing either a misery whip two-man saw, or your Stihl chainsaw bar. The scrubbing action of the metal dust that's suspended in that used oil is so negligible as to be nonexistant. But the fact that one oil change in your car gets you a few years worth of bar oil is a pretty good benefit, IMO.
