    The wetness that is seen is after I squirted some mix into the exhaust port after seeing how dry everything was

    I just left HD. Biggest bottles of echo oil was those squeeze bottles of 16oz. Power blend was $9 and red armor was $13. The one gallon mix bottles are $3 and $4 respectively.
    Thats either $18 or $26/qt. Thats too much. I left without any. Ill buy Saber shipped to my house before i pay that!

    Im going back to the walmart oil till i find something longterm unless that will be my long term.

    Do you have Marvin’s home improvement stores near you? I know they’re a southern thing, but I buy RA one gallon mix (2.6oz) bottles there for $1.88 and have for quite awhile.

    I normally dont either. But i made a stop by there in my work truck. All other oil i have used in the last 5 years or so i ordered online. I didnt see anything i thought was the right price for oil.

    But i keep thinking i will just buy the gallon of powerblend off ebay for like $45 shipped. Thats just a lot of oil for me. Several years worth. I havent been useing as much gas the last few years as i have been coordinating wood getting when my loggers are in hardwood. It saves some fuel since they cut it down and bucknit into trailer lengths for me.

    I here ya man, I don't use my saws at work so I don't need a gallon of oil either. I bought a 6 pack of 8 ouncers I think they are. That way I don't have a open bottle of oil for very long. I only mix a gallon at a time for personal use. We cut a massive willow oak today and had half the tree dropped off at my place. Time to mix up a fresh gallon, gonna try to get some airplane fuel tomorrow. Word on the street says it's supposed to be e-free and 94 octane.

    What are you running now?

    Yes Lucas is that bad.

    Honestly I don’t need any now I usually buy a couple quarts and I’m good. I’ve got about a quart of that husky stuff which I dig and part of a quart maybe less than half of the klotz benol

    I can get 87 E free and 90 (i think is what they call the premium now) e free. I usually just run 87.

    And it has Lead in it too (hence the LL, which stands for Low Lead) It is E free. FAA regs don't allow ethonol in aviation fuel.

    I personally wouldn't be running any leaded fuel in my OPE where I am standing around in clouds of exhaust for any period of time.
