It's J.Thomas's home brew, Part No. 12825 (also 10624, 10625 for the smaller bottles).

Noticing here a gallon of it for $20.75 makes 50 gallons of mix,
which comes in a bit of a ways cheaper than Opti-2's 100 gallon mix at $60.

Mostly wondering how it fares.

I maintain equipment for a guy who used the Intermix oil for a couple years. He's since switched over to something else. His Kawasaki trimmers had trouble with plugged exhaust ports--but they tend to plug on the other oils he uses also. He gave me a 6 pack of the oil. I've only used it to oil cylinders for winter storage.

I have used it for about a two years (the smokeless intermix), burning about 6 gallons of it total, with no problems in a Stihl 4-mix trimmer and Redmax stratocharged blower. For about 2 years before that, I was using Opti-2, because the 4-mix would carbon up the plug with some cheaper oil. I've had no problem with the intermix, though.
