    I use Opti-2 at 100:1

    It and Amsoil is a strait 100:1 mix for all 2 cycle equipment.

    I've used it for years and love it.

    Do a search AJ, there is tons of info on this site, and tons of debate.

    I've been talking about here almost since I joined. I use Amsoil at 80:1.

    Saber is labeled to be used at 100:1 in just about everything. My Stihl does just fine with the 100:1, some of my Echo equipment runs too hot with the 100:1 mix, so I add a little extra Saber. I run it about 80:1, and everything seems happy.

    I know I won't go that lean in any of my equipment...I don't care what the oil company says.

    Absurd. All to save 50 cents in oil.
