But you need to strain it thru a coffee filter first.

Check out the Saber Professional line of pre-mix oils. They burn clean and are "smokeless". At a 100:1 ratio it burns cleaner than most at a 50:1 ratio.

Use Redmax oil until warenty is over. Can't be much of a dealer if they don't stock the oil for what they sell! Dealer should keep up on his stock! Just saying!

Do I dare go out on a limb and say that at 100:1 it will burn cleaner then ALL the other mix ratios under 100:1? Oh course it will burn cleaner then 50:1, it's using half the amount of oil.

With that said, that's all I use. I mix at 80:1 and use it in anything 2 stroke.

Its against the law for a manufacturer to say you must use their oil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
