    Hey guys, I have been reading yalls post about the synthetic oil versus the 50:1 ratio. I have always used the regular oil because I haven't seen anything else on the shelf. I pay $40 for 1 gallon of Stihl oil. Is there a competetive synthetic oil out there for the same price and if so where do you get it? By the way, all of my engines use 50:1 and I do use my 4mix engines most of the time. Is synthetic good for these engines too? Thanks
