Small engine companies rated their own engine horsepower till they got sued from the tests being rigged. Cigarette companies had tests that showed cigarettes were good for your health. Forgive me but I do not trust companies self testing products anymore, I am not for government regulations but I do not trust everything I read on a bottle. Did you now PB blaster makes a product called Mower Tune Up that will give an engine more compression when you spray it into the engine, it will also clean the carburetor at the same time.(true product claim) I know you are trying to sell the product but if you trust every product claim you read you have issues.

I use amsoil products in fact my camaro has had amsoil since it got out of the break-in without any exception. I just have a hard time with 100:1 oil mix, and I only recommend what I will personally use. As for the Briggs comment did you really expect a company to say a product is crap that they are selling, even if it is the worst product on the market they will still say it is great as long as they are selling it.

I'm not taking Amsoil's word for it, I have experience using Saber as well as commercial customers who love it.
As I said before, if you don't feel comfortable with the claims on the bottle, don't use the product. Amsoil makes other 2-cycle oils that will mix at 50:1. I don't believe all the claims I read on a bottle, but I am open minded enough to give something a try to see if it works. Why do you discredit and criticize the claims just because you have a preference of running a richer mix.

I fully expect Briggs & Stratton to tell me the truth about the lubrication products they are putting in their equipment. Again, it is a liability issue for them to use sub-quality lubrication for the sake of saving money and then telling people it is an awesome product.

Thanks for your posts and comments.

Because I am the person that they go complaining to when the product fails. I am the one that has to explain to the customer that lack of lubrication is not a warranty issue. I am the one that listens to the customer tell me how someone in a forum told them that the product would be covered under warranty and to read the Mos act informing me that it is. GUESS WHAT I HAVE READ IT AND IT DOES NOT COVER NOT FOLLOWING MANUFACTURES INSTRUCTIONS IT JUST SAYS THEY CAN NOT MAKE YOU BUY THEIR OIL OR SERVICE AT THE DEALER.

Here are the fact of 100:1 oil mixs you have oils that have NOT been tested by JACO(THE ONLY INDEPENDENT TESTING ATHORITY THAT DOES 2CYCLE OIL) to meet the required standards of your equipment. But we are to believe that it is ok on the sole word that the company tells us that it is better then the products and they just do not feel the need to prove it. They even write leading us to think that it has been tested on the bottle by listing the certification saying the meet or exceed it, when they have never been tested for this standard.

I'm a little confused by the last post, I guess I don't get what your saying. It is obvious you don't like Saber 100:1 mix and you don't recommend using a 100:1 mix because that is too lean for you. I hear what your saying, I haven't had any problems with it in any of my applications nor have my customers, so from my experience and my customers experience, I still recommend it. If you have problems with it don't continue using it. There are many other factors that can cause equipment problems in your mix, such as ethanol, type of use. I understand that your customers are going to come back to you if you recommend a product and they have problems with it; guess what mine will too. Let's move on.

Thanks for your posts and comments.

Default Amsoil Warranty

I thought after the last conversation it would be fitting to post the Amsoil Warranty Policy. Maybe we can spark some discussion on interpretation.

Again thanks for all the posts, comments, and questions.

Matt

Not many here use small enough amounts of mixed oil and gas to buy a premixed it would just eat way to much into our profits
