Lol I still use Used Rotella SAE 30 in 2 of my old Lawn Boys,10-10 Auto,Pro Mac and 610 Pro Mac McCullough saws.I run the oil through a paint fliter to remove the chunks.Works great if you can stand the smell of burnt motor oil.I personally Love the smell of Oil.I'm not happy unless I get elbow deep in grease and oil.

Same here.  We wouldn't survive in this hobby otherwise.

Would that be 8 ounces of oil in 128? or 16:1.  Pretty rich mixture. I remember mixing 20:1 for a lot of small 2 strokes back in the 70's.

Dad's Pioneer saws were all 16:1. And he always mixed a little heavy for longevity... Whew, that haze stayed for days...

Remember the smoke and oil that used to come out of those old Evinrudes?
