For the EGO Chainsaw, the manual states "..the guide bar has a sprocket at its tip.  The sprocket must be lubricated weekly with a grease syringe to extend the guide bar life. Use a grease syringe to lubricate weekly with chain oil by means of the lubricating hole (Fig. 38)...".

By "chain oil", is it referring to the same bar and chain oil we pour into the chainsaw's oil tank (e.g. the "OREGON bar and chain oil" recommended by the manual)?

Hi Joe, yes, use the same bar and chain oil as used in the chainsaw's oil tank.
