AMSOIL for augers

7 posts in this topic

I bought a new Strikemaster laser last spring and am thinking about running with AMSOIL. Any recommendations on an oil/fuel mixture? I've heard you should run leaner than the 40:1 that strikemaster recommends when using AMSOIL, but wanted to get some input.

Thanks,

Edit: Stike my question from the record; I found my answer in previous posts by doing a search. Sorry about that......

I'm breaking in a new auger and running 50:1 for the first gal of gas after that I'll run 80-100:1 using Amsoil Saber

Thanks for the reply Esox. Your plan is very similar to others I've found. I ran "other stuff" through it last spring, and will switch to AMSOIL now. I'm not too sure if I'll go 80:1 or 100:1 though.....

I have a 11-12 year old Strikemaster Auger that says to use 25:1 of regular stuff.

For the last 3 years I have ran Amsoil Saber Professional at 80:1 with success.

Use the Amsoil as such with confidence.

As you found in your search, many have used Amsoil with great success.

80:1 mix in my StrikeMaster and all my 2 cycle engines. Don't be worried about the leaner ratio. You will be happy you made the switch.

    • I'm getting pretty far ahead of myself, but I'm beginning to wonder if another trailer ramp spring would be the way to go for raising the back bunk.  I've never used one before, but I'm sure you can set the tension so it's well below the maximum and it wouldn't take so much effort to pull it down.  Just put up some guide rails and spring latches to latch it in the down position.  Any thoughts?

    • Well that sure "Trumps" anything else going around and around on in this site today!
    • Yeah you're right, my bad. Yes, the line is awful. 
    • It was a false start on the OL and another one could have been called on the 2nd attempt.  The OL is just BAD, probably the worst I've ever seen for a vikings team.  It seems like few teams put a high priority on the OL.  A good OL can make an average qb, wr, and rb look awfully good when it gives them time and opens holes.  A bad OL can also make a great qb, wr, rb look awfully bad.
    • OLE77, They did replace the valve cover when they did the STP treatment at 92,000 miles; it made no lasting difference.    delcecchi, I have the 5.3 engine.  I'm guessing I need new rings, that seems to be what everyone tells me.   Down2Earth, When I initially brought it in, Village told me they had never heard of the problem.  When I returned (I had then googled it and heard about the AFM and many, many people who have gone through this), they changed their tune and pointed the finger at GM as not letting them properly fix it.  What a joke.   I've attached a photo of the plugs I changed out last week.  This is now a monthly ritual for me.  Great, really looking forward to changing these out in my driveway this Jan.  Grrrrrr.
    • I bought 2 fans off Amazon for $18 each and there 110v. There 5"x 5" and about 4" deep. I was thinking about mounting them under the heater. Or would it be better to but them in a woodbox and mount on to?. They say there good for 69,000 hr of run time.
    • To bad we had an holding penalty that made us attempt it from the 7.
