    Where do u guys get large containers of the Echo 50:1 mix? How much do you usually pay for them? Ive been buying the 6 gallon mixes for my backpack blower but go through them in weeks.

    Please advise

    Ask your dealer for the oil. If he don't have it, ask him to order it and see if he will keep one in stock at all times. I use a different brand of oil but I mix 5 gallons at a time so I use a lot of it.

    I get my 50:1 mix from Home Depot. Cheaper for me, but then again I use maybe 2 gallons a week of mix.

    I buy the gallon size by the case from my dealer. Current cost is $28.00 per gallon.

    Have u found this to be a big money saver vs buying the 5 gal mixers?
    With the one gallon, how have u been accurately measuring it out?

    Don't know if it saves me money or not compared to the 5 gallon size. I put a gallon jug on each trailer with a measuring cup, so there's no waste.
