    Well I will truthfully answer the second part, I have been using multi-purpose 2 cycle oil for 5+ years and have never had and problems engine wise. I don't recommend it, but like I said I'm not having any problems. I use Stihl products but have a Redmax 7001 blower also. They run as good as the day I bought them. I do use a stabilizer in the fuel over the winter. I have nothing for or against any particular oil. There are so many opinions out there about which is best that I just take it with a grain of salt and don't worry about it. Like I said I'm not recommending this, I'm just stating that this is what I have been doing.

    My choice is Opti2. Why? Many years of service with no related breakdowns with 50:1 ratio, smooth, and no smokin'. :usflag:

    Amsoil products can be purchased in several ways. The price you see on their website is retail. No dealer can sell below that cost.... unless you pay a small fee (as low as $10) for a Pref. Customer subscription, then you buy directly from Amsoil (under a dealer) at a dealer cost. They ship directly to your door from on of their warehouses. The next way, maybe the best for most of you, to buy as a Commercial Account. As a commercial account a dealer signs you up with no fee and you buy at or sometimes below dealer cost. Please do your research before making sarcastic statements like this!
    We run Amsoil in all of our engines, 2 cycle, mowers, tractors and trucks. It is very affordable when you get into the right buying category. It looks like Amsoil power is a dealer. Ask him, he can show you the pricing differences just can't post them on the net as I understand it.
