I have a 30 year old Craftsman chain saw that specifies a very rich gas oil mix - 15:1. It is hard to start and run with that mix. Opti-2 runs great, however. I should be able to run that saw as long as chains are available.
I have used Opti 2 for nearly 10 years in all my 2 stroke engines. The use primarily is with vintage Husqvarna motorcycles and a 1983 Husqvarna chainsaw as well. The bikes are 30 to 40 years old and once rebuilt are only fed this premix. Racing 1 for 10 plus years on the same rebuild with Optimol 2 and the bike preforms great. Excellent product that keeps old things young!!

I had heard great stories of your product at my local Ace. So I decided to give it a try. I use this stuff in a Stihl chain saw, lawn boy lawn mower, poulan chain saw, poulan 31cc weed eater, well everything 2stroke. I'm very impressed at how versatile it is. Having a stabilizer in it, I can mix up a weeks worth of gas and go.

I run a commercial grounds maintenance company (25 years) and I've ran Opti-2 In every piece of equipment we own and never have had an engine failure. You cannot beat the 100:1 mix in one gas can for all your mix ratio equipment. I bought my first T-27 weed eater almost 20 years ago and I still have and run it today, it's only ran on opti 2. If that's not enough proof to make you buy this product then you need therapy. If you are one my competitors disregard all the above, I always see your trucks parked at the mower fix it shop.

I recently purchased a new Stihl string trimmer and was told I should use their HP Ultra oil. The first time I started to fill the trimmer, I noticed a blue mix in the tank. HP Ultra is greenish. I called the dealer to ask the difference in the gas mixes and was given a lame answer of " the oil companies use different dyes and even though it is the same oil, his was blue and mine green."
That answer just sent me on a mission. Long story short, I found Opti-2 and it works great in my 32:1 saw, 40:1 (old) trimmer, and 50:1 (new) trimmer. The reason for the new trimmer, the old one was hard to start and keep running using the oil/gas mix prescribed for it. Funny how it always ran great post/repair shop until I added the prescribed mix.
Do yourself a favor and give Opti-2 a try before you give up on your equipment and purchase a replacement. You might just save a lot of money. BTW, my old trimmer runs great and starts on the first or second pull! Great product!

I have a 1982 Johnson outboard motor and started a few years ago using your oil having read about it in a magazine. Well up in this part of the country our big fish is the walleye and normally to get these you have to back troll to make a slow presentation. With all other oils that I have used before I had trouble with the engine running rough. When you had to speed it up it would smoke and finally would smooth itself out. With Opti-2 I can go for hours and hours and never have this problem, and when I do decide to have to move faster I have no big cloud of smoke after me. The engine runs like a million bucks with you oil. Best regards, PEP

As a commercial go-kart track operator, I am fortunate that I was introduced to Opti-4 and began using it in my 11 Honda engines. Each engine is put through a vigorous daily cycle, including extensive idling in the pits and hard operation on long, hot summer days. Even after accruing several thousand running hours on each, some in excess of 7,000 hours, these engines have performed virtually flawlessly in the many years that I have been using Opti-4. The 55-gallon drum of Opti-4 that sits in my shop is a sound investment in longevity, quality, and peace of mind.

Bought a Jonsereds chain saw 21 years ago and the logging dealer that sold it to me sold me a 2.5 gallon jug at that time. I faithfully used it and NEVER had a malfunction. That shop went out of business and so did my source for the oil. After 2 seasons of using other brands I had the tank strainer fail, the line collapsed, and the carb needed a kit. Been looking for this product since. So glad to have found the web site and will be purchasing a jug next time I'm out.
What can I say? Opti-2 in all my 2-cycle engines and Opti-4 during winter months on all my 4-cycles. I have been using your product for approx. 15yrs. Worked so well I had to lay to rest a Ryobi weed eater because parts were no longer available!!! NOT related to engine failure.
