They have the same amount of ethanol. 10%

Difference is octane. The higher octane helps it resist pre-ignition.

89 octane fuel, and any good 2 stroke mix should be fine in an echo. If your going to use amsoil, use it as directed. They advise 100:1. If you don't trust their recommendation, why use the product?

I suspect your Echo is set borderline lean from the factory. In the heat, it would like a little richer mix. Not the fuel/oil mix. But rather the fuel/air mix.

I don think I'd break in a new machine on it, but if I was going to run the Amsoil, I'd do it 100:1
