    I know some LCO's using it forever no problems. I've used a few gallons of it. No problems. It says marine 2 cycle on the front so I would not use it regularly. But today my buddy a big LCO shows me the on the back of the bottle it says can also be used on air cooled 2 cycle equipment (mowers, chainsaws, blowers etc). :confused:

    All 2 cycle oils are pretty much the same.

    I have been using that 2 cycle for years. I buy it by the case of 100 every year. Last me until about the end of August. Then I just buy about 25 more. All motor oils/2 cycle oils are regulated by the government. I dont care if you buy it from you local lawn dealer or wal-mart the only difference is about 3-5 bucks.

    I have used it also, for about 2.5 years, no problems yet. Thinking about using it in my snowmobiles this winter.

    And to think, at one point we all thought, or some still do until they read this, that The stihl/echo mix was something special that we needed for our $4oo blowers and weed eaters!

    I suspect they are the same oil w/ two different labels.

    I have been using it for about 2 years, and it works great. I run all redmax 2 cycle stuff. I just wish they sold it by the gallon or something larger than those little 8 ounce containers as pictured above by lawnzilla.
