Ask him to buy you a low-odor oil tell him its 20$ a pint.

I've had really good luck with the g-oil 2 cycle oil, but none of my gear is high performance.

A hitachi RB24EAP blower, craftman 25cc line trimmer, and toro ccr2450 snowblower.

An amazon seller screwed up my order twice and they told me to keep it so I have a lifetime supply. Its green, low odor and seems to work well. They claim it exceeds Jaso FD.. but who knows since that is self tested.
