I'm not trying to start an oil war or super long post but I know there is a good chance I do.

I need to buy some more and want to know what folks are useing. Several years back I used some bel rat, the. Uses a few quarts of amsoil, then got some Lucas but quit when someone told me it left their says dryer and less oily residue than other worse oils so I quit useing it. I got a qt of Raiseman semi syn that I just used up last I mixed. I am going to have to use the last of the Lucas that I have untill I buy something else and was wondering what folks are useing these days.

I use husky 2t oil in everything that’s 2t. I stick with the manufacturers oil.

On the dirtbikes it’s maxima super synthetic blend for nickasil cylinders and maxima 927 for castiron sleeves, castor synthetic blend.

Before those I posted I had used we real quarts of the husky xp plus or whatever you could buy in black bottle with blue label from Lowe's. It's semi synthetic. But I had several well known guys that were and may still be here and also on another forum we all probably know tell me that stuff was terrible and coked up saws worse than anything they have used. I quit it after that. Don't want to deal with that even though I didn't think I had a problem with it up till that point .

Stihl synthetic in the grey bottle.
I buy 6 packs of the 1 gallon for 50:1 makeup, but use .8 gallons of ethanol free. Should get me somewhere around 40:1 I think.

I have been using Amsoil sabre pro in all my two cycle and four mix equipment. There are ratings now ISOLGED and jaso??? should say in a modern owners manual. In honesty I used Gulf and Sunoco in quarts from gas stations for years with no problems. No high revs with no load I heard years ago seems to work.

It's readily available
That isn't showing up at the Schaffer's website. 4 cycle marine diesel seems the closest to boat. I found bar and chain oil.

I gave my son a new poulan wild thing about 20 years ago. When he bought a house. He had brush piled up the size of a small three bedroom ranch house.
He used his left over super maxima 34:1 dirtbike mix. I thought this saw wouldn’t last, today it still runs. It makes me think about what’s more important the brand of oil or the mix ratio?
