I wanted to ask if any of you have been using the synthetic oil. To my understanding, there is only one way to mix...no 50:1 or 32:1. Is this true?<br>I currently own Echo and Redmax equip. The Redmax says to run at 32:1, so that's what I use in both brands since the richer mix won't hurt the Echo. Do any of you Redmax users run 50:1 ? My dealer is only going to carry 50:1 and synthetic from now on.<p>jeff

I use the Amsoil 2 cycle 100:1 as well. I have been using it well over seven years with no trouble. The great thing about it is, it is hard to screw up. Wether it ends up at 100:1 or 60:1 it will still work fine. I usually splash in 8 ounces or so with 5 gallons of gas.

My dealer uses something that works in EVERY kind of gas mixture. No more mixing ratios. I cant remember off the top of my head, but ill check it out tomorrow.

I've been using Amsoil in all 2-cycle equip for 5 years now, mixed at 100:1 with not one fuel related problem. You can get the small bottles that have graduations on the side to help you mix. I'd never use petro based 2 cycle again for the above reasons.

Acute,<br>That must be the synthetic mix. Since Redmax recomends such a rich mix, I would hate to try something stupid and burn out a couple of blowers.<br><p><font size="1">Edited by: jeffyr
