    We'll I was more than a little sceptical when I read the post about this stuff but bought some and tryed it out yesterday, my Stihl hedgetrimmer normally takes about 4 pulls to start, with this stuff mixed @ 100:1 it took 1, and the throttle responce on all my equipt is more responsive, gonna try it in my Huskey Rancher 55 next- should be a good test because it typically takes 5-8pulls to start. :clapping:

    Very good. I'm glad it worked for you. I've been using it at 80:1 for many years now.

    I use 64:1 Amsoil, I hope it is not too much oil.

    You are loosing the benefit of a cleaner burn by using too much oil.
    80:1 is the best ratio for commercial or heavy use.

    Glad to hear your results are positive. Everyone should try this 2-cycle oil. Your statements are consistant with everyone else's about it. Thanks again.

    You think it might hurt the engine using 64:1? I thought it is still less than 50:1 for normal oil.

    It won't hurt anything using it at 64:1. As long as you are happy with the results then go with it.

    You probably fattened up the mixture thus easier starting/ better bottom end throttle response. Oil displaces fuel, remove oil air /fuel ratio changes.

    At 80:1 I'm still happy with it. No smoke, no smell, and easy to start.
