I have run this saw way harder than most homeowners. A tank of gas is good for a couple hours of cutting. I've probably been through 75 tanks of gas in 3 years. The toolless tensioner was not a factor when I bought it, but I love it now. I can easily adjust the chain tension while up in a tree, with one hand; try that with a wrench and screwdriver. This saw always starts. I have dropped it in a river twice. The first time I took it to the shop; they charged me $65 to "fix" it, and change out the gas. The second time, I pulled out the plug, dried it in the sun for awhile, put it in (even though I could still see water in the cylinder), and it started, coughed a bit, then blew out the water and ran great ever since.
I run straight vegetable oil for bar oil, ever since the first tank of oil. Mostly canola oil, which says liquid in the cold, but peanut, soy or whatever works. Look on some of the threads on arboristsite dot com; there are pros who have been using straight veggie oil for bar oil, for years, and they are all for it; some say it works better than conventional bar oil, and its cheaper! It stays on the bar fine. You don't have to buy the expensive vegetable bar oil formulations, which are very popular in Europe, and recommended by the Forest Service. You basically leave all your bar oil in the forest, on the ground, in the sawdust; use veggie oil, its better for the environment, and better for you (you breathe some of the bar oil as mist). I have not had any problems with the oiler. The guys in the shop don't like the veggie oil at all; they grumble that I will wear out the bar or something, but there is no unusual wear, its the original bar, and I have used this saw hard. Honestly I never clean it either; I probably should. Great saw!
A few tips particular to this machine: First, the combined kill switch/choke lever must be pulled out before being flicked upward to the choke position. Though it appears to be rugged enough for normal usage, I'm not sure this plastic lever would withstand being forced into the choke position without being pulled out first.
Second, this is a fairly high-compression engine. I strongly recommend, for safety, that the saw be held down on the ground by your foot through the handle to keep it under control when starting, rather than "drop starting" it.
Third, a word about starting. I have read a number of reviews that groused about the 440E being difficult to start. I found these complaints unwarranted, but starting technique IS important.
Here it is, in a nutshell: 1. Pull out the choke lever and flick it up to the CHOKE position. 2. Pump the transparent priming bulb 8 times - it should then be mostly full of fuel. 3. Pull (yank!) the starter cord two or three times, or until the engine "pops", or fires. 4. Flick the choke lever down to the "RUN" position. 5. Two or three pulls on the starter cord, and she'll usually fire right up.
General tips: Order yourself a set of these, from Amazon: Timber Tuff TMB-08W 8-Inch Felling Wedge, Green, 2-Pack. These plastic wedges can be hammered into the cut to free a stuck chain (or, even better, to keep your saw from getting pinched in there.) Then, get this (search it on Amazon): Timber Jack Log Jack Tool by Woodchuck. This is the best quality, strongest, all-metal log jack I've ever seen! Will lift a 10-foot section of a 20-inch diameter tree with moderate effort, and suspend it off the ground. For about 84 bucks you can save your bar, chain, and back.
