Bought the chainsaw attachment. I added chainsaw oil to the tank and set the saw horizontal with the cap upright. I noticed today oil on the ground. It hasn’t been used yet.

Ego is an oozer...just like my Sears Gas Powered saws were...I try to cut until I'm getting low on bar oil...then I put it away on an empty plasticized feed oozing...:)

I never load bar oil to the top until I'm ready to cut...:)

Stored vertically my saw attachment has a very slow leak. Not enough to make a big mess but enough to require cleaning the shaft and the plastic drive protection cup after a winter of storage.
