    I started using Amsoil 100:1 my equipment. No problems so far. I also like that it does not smoke when properly mixed.

    Amsoil is excellent stuff, check out this story hehe. My freind had an old dodge pickup, he believed when the oil was low he'd fill her up and that would be his oil change after like 6-7 fills. Well one day i convinced him to really change his oil, and better yet with amsoil. So he did. WOW, lol, the synthetic blend broke down all the sludge and grime he had built up for 180,000 miles, clogged the oil pump, and started creating leaks everywhere!!! Within 8 hours of the oil change this all happened, the sludge used to block the small leaks and seal them from leaking, well when the amsoil ate through it, wala, leaks leaks leaks. Needless to say he trashed the truck and swore to me once more "If it aint broke dont fix it" lol i still hear about it today and that was 6 years ago...

    well tried in cheap blowerthat oscilated
    a little on 50-1 but still ran good.
    It disintegrated ,not really.

    SO FAR SO GOOD it ran cool and strong.

    Meant to comment about your experience.
    That can happen and should always be considered.
    viva la nondetergent oil or lard or what ever
    it takes to keep it running. been there

    well.Ijust wonder if these machines are
    made to stand that much rpm. Ibelieve it
    increased rpm on my blower 20-25
    percent.Almost sounded scary.
