    I bought 2 small 6packs of Shindaiwa "one"oil. When I got home I was surprised to see that I was charged $22 for both. This seems a little high to me. Since each bottle makes .8 of a gallon, thats like $2 a gallon plus the actual fuel price.

    $5.88 a 6pk here. I run all shindaiwa equipment but I use the Opti 2 oil instead I think you will find alot of people using it or the Amsoil.

    Never used it, but I'll check the next time I'm at the mower place. I have used Amsoil for 9 years and never had any problem. I buy the quarts of 100:1 for $8 and change. In theory it should mix 25 gallons, but we usually get 20 out of them. Cost is less than 50 cents a gallon for a synthetic. You are probably using the Shin oil for the warranty, but if not it might be something to look into.
