    I am not trying to start another oil argument but simply asking about using Saber. I have used it for years with no issues but not at 100 to 1. I normally used it at 75:1. I have recently been been using Red Armor at 45:1 with great results. Idling, running, and smoke was always better with Saber but after researching more I am wondering if the bearings were getting enough lube. Any thoughts on potential long term impacts with both?

    Thanks!

    I’d run them both at 40:1 and not have any worries. The 100:1 is just a marketing scheme

    I will second the 40:1 statement with any of the “good” oils.

    Another vote for 40ish to 1 from me. Pick what oil you like and stick with a reasonable ratio.

    Ive seen saber run for a looooong time at 80:1, but i wouldnt run that ration in my saws especially modified. As these guys said, figure out a ratio that works and fukkin send it.

    I’ve run 75:1 in stock 562xp


    modified 390xp and 500i get 40:1, no issues but I am enjoying 40:1 and would probably run it in my 562 if I still had it

    The little ms170 does not behave at 40 to 1.
    Pain keeping more than one fuel mix.
    That saw will get sold at some point.

    I tried 40:1 royal purple and got an alarming amount of carbon in my ms261 & MMWS ms462.
    The 462 fouled a plug in 5 tanks.
    I run them at least 3/4 throttle with not much idle time.
    I switched to Echo brand at 50:1 and recalibrated both saws. Not enough run time to inspect plugs yet.

    Chainsaws have 3 speeds, off, idle and full throttle in the cut. But it's not my saw.

    Agree 100% but running full throttle with a ported saw that bumps the rev limit super easily is tricky.
    I guess the trick is to push on it more and take the rakers down.
