I think it's a 50:1 motor.So I bought a Sthil gas leaf blower. The exhaust is out out in front so you kind of walk into to it. I ran it a few minutes using Echo Red Armor as that's what I had, but it left me stinking like exhaust.
Maybe use what I already have and go with a 60:1 or 70:1 mix?
I'm not going going electric. Any another off shelf oil suggestions?
Maybe, it depends of how it is tuned and run.
What is Saber oil anyway? High ester content JASO FC?
JASO FD, I suspect it has esters. But I don't know the formulation nor could I disclose it if I did.
Thanks for posting that but it's true I don't know the formulation nor if I was an employee would I be allowed to post it. All companies are like that. A MSDS is not a formulation, just as an FYI
Racing?? What engine, etc??Back in the 80's I was sponsored by Neo synthetic oil. It was supposed to be used @ 100:1. I couldn't keep my engine together at that ratio. I'm sure oils have improved since then but I'm not in the 100:1 camp.
Typical Amsoil marketing.100:1 is for bragging rights, and to show the internet carbonless piston skirt photos.
How does Opti sound?Typical Amsoil marketing.
Im sure Saber is a good ester based 2 stroke oil, but I have no reason to believe that it offers better lubricity that the other ester based 2 stroke oils on the market. Running Saber 100:1 successfully in a trimmer is not a convincing argument, it just sounds shamwow!
Yes. I raced an 1984 ARC250R back then. Neo gave me cases of their oil as well as stickers.Racing?? What engine, etc??
I would NEVER never recommend 100:1 with an oil not specifically designed to dilute that much, and in a race engine, never. Amsoil Dominator is NOT a 100:1 oil, for example.
