    May I suggest Amsoil. Do a search on it here on LS. You will find many users and believers. Attached is a data sheet for reference. Any questions, please ask.

    To buy now, use the link to my website in my signature to the online store. PM me your name & address and I will send you a bottle to try. It will be a 8oz. bottle to be used in 5 gal of gas for a 80:1 ratio.

    Ive tried a couple of different oils and ive pretty much settled on the echo, good price ($6 for enough for 6 gallons) and all my 2-strokes seem to run good on it, Ive not been to impressed with the stihl oil and husky oil.

    just been reading on this amsoil why would you run 80:1 or 100:1 in a trimmer or blower that uses 50:1 ? I always mixed 50:1 does running it at the higher ratio help any

    All about quality of the oil. Amsoil synthetic 2-cycle provides enough lubrication at 80:1 (which may save you $$$$ because you are using less) as does all the others at 50:1. Less oil = less carbon build-up. Search the threads, many guys love it.
