    Sounds like the Stihl dealer, if he indeed said it, may wanna sell some new equipment prematurely. Other than that, it makes zero sense to take a chance.

    I believe AMSoil has actually tested saber pro to 300:1 with no issues. Although, AMSoil does state to run saber pro at 80:1 for commercial equipment. That said, no way in hell would I try it with anything else, especially if it suggests to mix at xx:1 ratio.

    Amsoil told both myself, and then GMLC when he talked to them, that Saber Pro had been tested to 300:1. The tech told me that the engine showed no signed of wear after doing so during their testing.

    I'm not sure where you got that info about 80:1. It's labeled right on the bottle Saber Pro 100:1, and that is the mix ratio they recommended to me on the phone, though they said anything down to 50:1 is fine with 80:1 being very popular.

    Go to this link and then scroll down to where it says applications

    Yea, you're right. It doesn't say anything further than "100:1 for 'normal' applications". I swear I saw somewhere that AMSoil suggests running 80:1 for "severe" duty applications. Regardless, it's still a far superior 2-cycle oil to anything else out there. IMO, next closest thing is Shindy RedArmor.
