    I'm wanting to try Amsoil for our 2 cycle and 4 mix equip.

    What size bottles have you found works the best, and do you mix 2, 2.5, or 5 gals at a time.

    I use the Amsoil ASE oil at 80:1 which is 1.6 oz per gallon of gas.
    Since the oil comes in quarts, I use an old bottle of Sta-Bill which has graduations measures for 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and 1 oz.
    I put a 1 oz measure and add just under a 3/4 measure to a 1 gal. gas can.
    Of course, you can use a measuring cup and add one 8 oz. cup of oil to a five gallon gas can...

    I took advantage of the offer made on LS a couple of months ago, a free sample. The sample was an 8 oz bottle. After I started using the product, I ordered a case of quarts (12 bottles in a case). Now, I just use the 8 oz bottle, with the graduations marked as my measuring device. I mix 5 gallon cans, 8 oz per can (75:1), 2 1/2 gallon cans, 6.5 oz per can (50:1).

    If you know you're going to buy a fair amount of Amsoil, become an Amsoil Preferred Customer. That way, you get deep discounts on all that you buy. I think it costs like $20 to become a preferred customer.

    Or if you don't want to fool with that, you might find a dealer near you.

    You can also become a dealer for about 60 bucks, i think, it is sold thru a multi-level marketing program.

    Good system for some products and can work well (like with Amsoil) but it has been abused too many times...
