    Today I bought a 1 gallon container and put 1 gallon of 87 gas in it. I also mixed in the Husqvarna XP oil into it. I just had a question if I should use 87 or 89 gas next time? My other machines I just use 87 gas and mix it with whatever oil they got at the hardware store.

    We have one Husqy trimmer and two Red Max. We've gone to using Premium (93 I believe it is) in all our equipment. For the 2 cycles especially I think it's best.

    If it was me I would stay with a major oil manufacture....years ago I used anything and I never got over 2 years from a piece of equipment....I finally started using a premium oil and now I have so equipment that is 5-6 years old and running strong
