That is correct. Most guys here at Lawnsite (myself included) mix it at 80:1.

Richard is right.

Many guys here use 100:1 with no problems, but I do like he does and a lot of others and mix it at 80:1. I'll never go back to any other oil after using it for the last year. It is great stuff, and has saved me a lot of money.

We use about 35 gallons of 2 stroke gas a week. It gets mixed 25 gallons at a time. 1 quart of sabre in 25 gallons is 100/1. I have not had an engine failure with any of my almost 40 some pieces of Stihl equipment. We also have crappy 10% ethanol gas. It causes fuel line and primer bulb issues. We also replaced 3 or 4 carbs this year.
