Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allen Excellent product
I have used Echo Power Blend oil for years and it has always preformed very well in all seasons. It is a clean burning oil unlike Husqvarna oils that contain a lot of ash that plugs exhaust ports and mufflers.
A lot of problems people have are from mixing this oil to rich (more than 2.6 oz to 1 gallon of fuel). To much and you will lose power and loss of performance. Second problem people is they do not know that this oil is JASO rated FD oil. It is not compatible with other non JD rated oils and will destroy the pistons, cylinders and carbs on equipment if it is mixed with other oils. Found this out the hard way when I purchased a new SRM280 trimmer. The dealer mistakenly filled the fuel tank with fuel from the wrong jug when they did the initial start up when I purchased it. It ran good until I filled the tank with fuel mixed with Power Blend oil. After three tanks had been ran through the trimmer the engine seized up. The results from ECHO were that the two different JASO rated oils were not compatible thus causing the engine to seize. ECHO replaced the engine and Carb under warranty without a single problem since it was the dealers fault. I have since ran approx 5 to 6 gallons of fuel through the trimmer using nothing but Power Blend oil and I have not experienced the first problem so far. The engine starts easily, runs strong and the spark plugs have always been clean when inspected.
I highly recommend this oil.

For all the negative reviewers, mix fresh with 89 octane and stop using old mixed fuel! I discard after 3 months... I'm a chemical operator, gasoline loses it's volitility, oil will separate, and old mix without stabilizer will attract moisture... Works very well with minimal smoke.

I've been using this echo power blend in my echo srm 225 since new. I also use it in my leaf blower and have never had an issue. Properly measure the oil at 2.6 oz to 1 gallon of premium gas and you will have great results. I don't buy 'discount' gas for my equipment..either shell, Mobil, chevron..etc, are good fuels to make premix, not fuels from a grocery store, and such places.

This product made my echo blower and weed wacker bog down. It clogged up the spark arestor and i was using the correct mix ratio and running machine at high power. I switched to stihl hp ultra and im very happy with that product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony Dosnt mix well. Seperate when sitting
I've bought this a few times in the summer and it work OK. Been running premix in my snowmobile when it's cold it dosnt mix well no matter how hard you shake it or mix. A lot of the oil sank to the bottom of my tank luckily I didn't burn up my motor...

I guess there are a lot of 2 cycle motor oils you can used ECHO products before, so when I needed more I bought this container because of the easy to measure container.
