We have used what ever we can get our hands on either the local dealer, box store, or even the cheap walmart oil. About to try the red armor oil now.

I use 2 different types of oil. I have been using the red Armor for the last 3 years in all my echo equipment and it runs fantastic it doesn't smoke it don't have a bad smell my equipment always starts on the first or second pull. This is a very good products it helps keep your new and old equipment running and performing like it should. The other oil I use in some of my other equipment is the opti2 this is also a very good product I have been using this product for about 8yrs.

I have used the Stihl stuff for many many years. I recently bought my first case of Red Armor and I'm planning to give that a go. Made it through 5 gallons so far. Im anxious to see if it improves the performance of any of our older equipment.

We use Redmax oil for 9 years now in our redmax products. We also use Stihl oil in our stihl products. After learning about Red armor oil we will be using it for this year to see how things turn out.

For the first 8 years in my business I was using the standard stihl oil. Then about 3 years ago I started using the Echo power blend. Now this year I am switching to the Echo Red Armor and testing it out.

RED ARMOR. Period. Nothing else comes close. I used to use just whatever was available but my trimmer started to run less efficiently. One tank of Red Armor and it runs like new. I'll never use anything else. I buy the oil mix by the gallon. I believe it makes close to 50 gallons. Much more economical as well.

I agree, Red Armor Oil. I have used almost every other oil like most of you and noticed a difference with the Red Armor Oil.

It cleans out the old gunk if you pick up a used piece of equipment and its great for engine rebuilds lubricating new bearings/piston/cylinder ect.

I just grabbed some of the Red Armor to give it a shot. After a day I did notice a quicker easier start on my string trimmer and handheld blower. Haven't run it through my backpack yet which will be interesting. That thing has always smelled like it was running very rich even when properly adjusted. Hoping this cuts down on the obnoxious smell a little.

I currently run Amsoil Saber. I don't run it at 100:1 though. I use it at 70:1. I may go back to Stihl HP Ultra though.

All these comments are making me think of switching to Red Armor, but right now I just use some generic stuff from walmart that matches a bunch of ratios.

I bought a case of Echo's 2 cycle oil when I bought my saw and that is what I use.
After I finish that I may try some of the synthetics. I keep hearing good things about them.
