    What 2 cycle is everyone using? I have seen a huge price increase in 2 cycle oil. Is it better to buy a 5 gal bucket?

    What about Opti-2 Two Cycle?

    I have used Opti-2 for several years and works well. They say the Amsoil Saber is good but I never tired it.I run Stihl in my chain saw.

    Just what does this mean? Synthetic conventional? It can be synthetic, blended or conventional. If it's synthetic and coventional then it's a blend.

    Echo pro blend or the redmax 2 cycle oil... I've always used these and never had problems. A friend of mine tried opti-2 for a few years and had nothing but problems with the redmax 8000's, he had to re-build them, get new carbs it was crazy. I've only used the echo or redmax oil and never had problems. Of course maybe his guys wern't mixing it properly who knows haha
