Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bugg this is a 50:1 ratio bottle, read below
There is some confusion people have had with this product with regard to its mixing ratio. Granted, it does not say DIRECTLY on this bottle what "ratio" this is. Generally, the "ratio" depends on the size of the 2 stoke oil container and 1 gallon of gas. Basically, a 3.2oz. bottle is a 40:1 ratio, a 2.6oz. bottle is a 50:1 ratio, and a 4oz. bottle is a 32:1 ratio. So, since THIS bottle is 2.6oz., it is a 50:1 ratio. Some products advertise themselves as a "multi-ratio" bottle. Usually, these are 3.2oz. or 4oz. bottles where you can use the whole bottle or part of the bottle to 1 gallon of gas to get the proper ratio you need (in other words, if you buy a 3.2oz. bottle, you would use ALL the bottle to a gallon of gas for a 40:1 ratio, or just use 2.6oz. out of the 3.2oz. to get a 50:1 ratio). Remember, this is all based on ONE GALLON of gas. If you change the amount of gas, you are going to change the ratio.

Synthetic, is the only oil for all lawn equipment. I use it in every gas engined thing that I own. (Car's included.) It is clean, (older mowers quit smoking when the oil was changed to synthetic.)
Rule 1) Break the engine in on standard oil, so that the rings and valves will seat. (I use about 8,000 miles for cars, and about 1 year for lawn equipment, using standard "mineral" oil.)
Rule 2) Change synthetic a bit less often than Mineral oil, but do change it, (Crankcase.)
This is the closest that I can find, for mixing on 2 cycle engines. I wish that it didn't have the mixed "mineral oil" with it, (that forms ash in the engine,) BUT, AS SAID; IT'S THE BEST THAT I CAN FIND THROUGH "RETAIL OUTLETS!"

There is much debate about which 2 cycke oil is the best. All I can say is that I have used Ryobi 2 cycle oil in my Ryobi string trimmer and handheld leaf blower for several years and have not had any engine problems. Both units still have plenty of power and do not smoke excessively and I have never removed the original spark plug. You can pay 30% more for the big name brands but I think most of the extra cost goes to marketing and not performance,

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by alangski No specifications on bottle or web-site.
The product says to add to 1 gallon of gasoline, but does not state the concentration ratio of 40:1, or 50:1.
