I am running an older lawn boy I picked up at a swap meet and want to change the oil first before I take it out on the maiden voyage. Any recommendations on a good synthetic oil for it?
You will see better performance and less possible issues with a 100:1 Mix. Obviously your current 80:1 is fine but better overall performance at my suggested ratio as well as the bottle states. Running a hotter plug is also suggested with this for optimum results. Any questions or concerns feel free to let me know. I will be the Technical Voice for all Amsoil products.I've recently started using Amsoil synthetic (Saber Professional) 100:1 2 cycle oil. I mixed it at 80:1 and its virtually smoke free and the tecumseh loves it. I had a thread over on MTF that asked peeps to chime in on their experiences with it and not one response was negative. And mixing it at the leaner oil ratios makes it cheaper to use than standard dino oil mix.
