Are you refering to any brand of smokeless 2-stroke oil???

If so, then I will highly endorse Opti-2!

Anything that will keep a Homelite trimmer alive and kicking for 3 full years now! must be some good stuff!

All of my other stuff (blower, hedge trimmers) are Redmax and I keep waiting for those ol' Homelites to die so I can replace them too......but the Opti-2 won't let 'em die.

Help a blind man see the light

I've been doing quite a bit of looking at new equipment lately. Several of the dealers carry the Opti oils for 2 and 4 strokes. They claim they will double th engine warrenty. But at $6 for 20oz, I figure you could by a new engine with a new warranty on all parts for less than the oil changes cost over time.

It cost more for 20oz than a quart of premium synthetic oil does. That's awfull expensive to me. I buy Shell Rotella T synthetic 5w 40 and run it in everything I own. I get out for less than $14 a gallon on it. Maybe if it were really safe and trustworthy to extend drain intervals like AMSOIL claims to be, then I could maybe see it.

AM I MISSING SOMETHING HERE

Opti-2 for me also. I bought a 6pack of Stihl oil about 2 months ago just to try it again. Before the 1st bottle was gone I was wishing I had the Opti. The fumes in corners was killer.
