Opti-2 mixed @ 100:1.

Our shop fuel is 89 octane ethanol free gas & Opti-2 mixed @ 100:1.

This is the mix I have used since 1983. We have used it in thousands of
new and used engines with no problems.

Amsoil Saber is specifically made to run at 100:1. Fully synthetic oil.

Stihl and Amsoil synthetics are very similar. One of my Stihl dealers has told me that I can use the Stihl oil at the same ratio (80:1) as Amsoil and he will warrant it.

That's what I run in my Stuff too! Plus I also use 93 octane in all of my equipment! Never a problem!
