Your String Trimmer, Chainsaw and Blower Mix Ratio Made Easy

Depending on two-stroke equipment age, brand and owner preferences, keeping track of two-stroke oil mix ratios can be complicated. Professional lawn and landscape companies in particular face challenges when it comes to ensuring employees are using the correct mix ratio.

One of my best selling products – Saber Pro 100:1 but I’m constantly reminding people to relax and try it at our suggested 80:1 or 100:1..  – OK – on with the blog entry!

One oil for all your equipment

AMSOIL SABER® Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil helps solve these problems by providing excellent protection against performance-robbing carbon and wear at any mix ratio up to 100:1.

Two-stroke mix ratios apply to two-stroke equipment that requires oil and gas to be pre-mixed. This is in contrast to two-stroke engines that inject oil into the engine, such as many snowmobiles and newer outboard motors. The mix ratio is the proportion of gas to oil, expressed as a ratio. For example, 50:1 means 50 parts gas to 1 part oil.

The chart below shows the proportions and container sizes for conventional mix ratios (e.g. 32:1, 40:1 and 50:1) and the SABER Ratio™ (80:1 or 100:1).

Metric 2-Stroke Mix Ratio

Excellent performance at any mix ratio

Some operators prefer using the mix ratio recommended in their owner’s manual. SABER Professional offers outstanding protection at conventional ratios. Check out how it performed at 50:1 in ECHO® string trimmers. Its ability to fight carbon and reduce wear help you get maximum power and operability out of your equipment.

Use the SABER Ratio to cut costs

But some people want the convenience of using one mix ratio for all their equipment. They also want to spend less on oil to cut costs.

AMSOIL SABER Professional’s top-grade synthetic bases oils and advanced additives help prevent wear across all ratios, providing the ultimate in convenience, protection and value. As the images show, SABER Professional mixed at 100:1 delivers rock-solid protection against wear and carbon. Check out the full test results here.

2-cycle oil deposits

AMSOIL SABER Professional mixed at 100:1 delivers better protection against power-robbing deposits than other oils mixed at 50:1.

SABER’s ability to cut costs while delivering rock-solid protection helps lawn and landscape professionals simultaneously boost their bottom line and build their reputation for reliably producing professional-looking lawns and grounds. Mixing AMSOIL SABER Professional at the SABER Ratio reduces oil costs up to 50 percent compared to using a 50:1 ratio.
