A lot of what I read was kerosene to clean and good lube every 200 miles.

(I have used bacon grease and it really worked great)(( no, dogs did not chase me and it didn't rot. lol))

I use "Chain Saw Oil" mainly because I have a gallon of the stuff laying around. It appears to lube the chain well, I do not pick up any dirt. I never thought about the spray stuff, I might give that a try as well
