    Are you saying that you run the Saber Pro? The Saber was designed to be used at 100:1 but of course it can be mixed to your specific needs and wants. Anything that burns clean and provides the protection that is needed in our field is a plus

    That's probably true, but I know Stihl has refused to honor warranty claims based on not using their oil. I'm not saying it's right, but the dealer told me so himself.

    Yes I use Saber mixed 80:1. I've used it for close to 14 years.

    Easy one, JASO FD and ISO-L-EGD CHECK for the JASO FD cert number because many companies lie. Just go to Home Depot and grab the ECHO FD oil until your dealer gets some of that RED ARMOR OIL in stock

    I ordered the Dolmar synthetic and RED Armor OIL extra Air/fuel Filters from the same the same vendor on AMAZON last night. Shipping was only $5.95 for the whole order!, I thought I would try both oils in my new Dolmar trimmer before I decide what to stay with.
