    Opti-2 mixed @ 100:1.

    Our shop fuel is 89 octane ethanol free gas & Opti-2 mixed @ 100:1.

    This is the mix I have used since 1983. We have used it in thousands of
    new and used engines with no problems.

    I see a lot saying 100:1 I don't think I can go that thin on oil . I have seen other peoples rc airplane run on 100:1 and they run hot and quit.

    Stihl and Amsoil synthetics are very similar. One of my Stihl dealers has told me that I can use the Stihl oil at the same ratio (80:1) as Amsoil and he will warrant it.

    That's what I run in my Stuff too! Plus I also use 93 octane in all of my equipment! Never a problem!
