It's a little scary sometimes but I have run this oil at 120:1 and some other modern two stroke oils as lean as 160:1 in motocross bikes and ultralight aircraft engines. Did it right before a top end job at least once so I could check the internals for lubrication. Some modern two stroke oil is pretty amazing stuff. Your mileage may vary, don't do anything stupid based on this.

For my chain saw I am trying to use up some old Yamaha snowmobile oil. I cover half of the bottom of a canning jar with oil and mix enough gas to fill the tank. Eyeball work. Both extremes you see. This particular antique chain saw probably belongs in a museum. It will probably outlast me.
Don't believe everything you think. Especially don't believe everything that you feel. Radical Subjectivism is rampant on this forum.
