For me, I'm running Home Depot off-the-shelf synthetic 2 cycle found in the weed whacker section @ 24:1 (break in) then I'll move to 32 ~ 40:1 after break in with the same stuff. Right now plug has a good mocha color.
Question is, Would it make a noticeable difference (both performance and HT engine life) by going with an Amsoil product??
BTW - I found this chart that some may find useful. Amsoil 2 Cycle Comparison Chart
