Re: Fuel Mixture: Is 25:1 and 32:1 Really Necessary?
I agree synthetic modern oils are very good, however I still run 40:1 with synthetic in saws calling for 50:1. A little extra oil certainly won't hurt anything.
My logger buddies are old school, they run 1 quart of non detergent 30 weight motor oil in 5 gallons of gas. They burn 5 gallons a day in Stihl 660/661s.
