I thought the mix for Amsoil was 33 cc for one gallon of gas. Just do the math on the back of the bottle, one ounce is 30cc, any pharmacy will give you a small measuring bottle if you need it to meausure out the exact amount of oil. I use Amsoil in my auger and everything else, it's so much easier than mixing all the different 32-1 and 40-1 etc.

My buddy ordered a brand new Strikemaster 224 that should be in anyday now. Since it is brand new would it be better to go 4 oz. with that first galllon of gas for a mix just for the break-in?

I would run the manufacturs oil the first tank or 2 just for warranty reasons but that is only my opinion.

Correct-- synthetic oils are not the greatest thing to use to break in a new engine. Run the first few tanks with conventional oil, then switch to amsoil.

So mix the oil as Amsoil says, 50-1 and ignore what the owners manuals say to mix at ? Just want to be sure.

I just saw an individual packet of Amzoil in the store today. It was 1.5 ounces and it said to mix with 1 gallon of gas.

I sent a email to Amsoil Tech support and asked which of their products to use in my auger and other two strokes.

Here is their reply :

Thank youfor contacting AMSOIL with your concerns.

Inresponse to your inquiry, the suggested product is AMSOIL Saber ProfessionalSynthetic 100:1 Pre-Mix 2 Cycle Oil (ATP). The 100:1 ratio (1.5 ounces pergallon) should be used regardless of the OEM recommendations, as this is ahighly concentrated product.

Thank youagain for the opportunity to respond to your concerns. As always, please feelfree to contact us again if we can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

Jim Van

Amsoil is the only oil I use in my truck, car, harley, 4 wheeler, chainsaw, lawnmower, etc. I think it is great. Ya I sell it too but for my cost to friends.

I fired my first tank of Amsoil yesterday in my SMLM-6 auger and I choked her to get her going pulled like 5 times and it popped so I through the lever forward to shut off the choke and she fired right up. I'm wondering if I'll ever have to choke her ever again? Burned super clean and no visible black residue. Instantaneous throttle response! I'm impressed I went with 2 oz. of Amsoil Saber Professional to 1 gal. of gas my auger is 7 years old...

Thanks you guys for the tip. Can't wait to rip some holes.

      Boot lake is not open to fishing.  I checked typo lake yesterday. Really sketchy right out from the access about 10 feet or so. Past that there was 4.5 inches. I did not fish just wanted to see if I got the new auger blades on correctly

      Nice Duff.  Don't you have a furs and feathers board, or you don't hunt and eat um? 🤔

      Here's what I have in the man cave. I refer to it as "The BIG Board". Usually add a couple pics a year, this year I've added 7. (It's been a good year)   On a log basis, I've kept track of days fished on ice and open water, species caught, and how many different bodies of water per year. About to wrap up year 20 of doing that, usually just jot it down on the calendar at work and tally it up at years end. That log total list is on the side of  The BIG Board.

      Any news of ice conditions in the Mankato area?

      Wanted a smaller compact high ah battery for early ice to run my camera. Found the Milwaukee M12 comes in a 3ah version, ¼ the weight and size of the small 12v lead acid and charges in 30 min verses 12 hours. Also the + - contacts in the battery match the male outlet plug and work with male spade lugs so connecting it to electronics doable. On line I can get a twin pack 4ah under $40. Pic is the smaller 3ah with a 5.5mm power cable. Video is my camera panner in motion with the M12's.

      My 4th year in southern MN. Seams to be normal deer running around where we have been hunting.

      Definitely would give the season a B. We were very fortunate in seeing a good number of deer. I sat a total of 4 sits during gun season and saw a total of 26 deer 6 bucks the rest does and fawns.  We went 4-5 with 3 nice bucks and doe being harvested. Would of easily filled the last tag but my brother is a trophy hunter and is very selective.  Me and my brother practice QDM and have put in a lot of food plots and minerall licks over the years and it has really paid off. . Its a lot of work but the rewards are worth it as I harvested 5 bucks in the last 5 years this year a  Nice 9 point . Looking forward to checking our trail cams soon to take note also  of our buck inventory.

      Where I hunt in the extreme eastern part of the arrowhead deer numbers show be low. My group of 7 guys hunted the whole season and saw 5 deer while hunting. A spike buck has been lucky as most have seen him and chose to let him walk. My dad took a 6 pointer that was chasing a doe. It’s not about killing a deer for me it’s about spending time with my family and it was a great year.    The population is where it it should be in the arrowhead. I am excited to see a possible wolf season coming again up there as it’s fun to have a wolf tag in the pocket just in case one slips up and comes out by you. My season was great would I have liked to see a few deer yepbut it was the relaxing I needed and provided me the stress relief I needed.   Taking out wolves would help the moose population so that is my stance!!!

      Thanks for checking and the report 
    • iiccee63
      Well I went out and checked the lake Friday am. All locked up. I walked out a bit and it looked like 2 inches. It froze over even which is good. Hopefully it's 2 inches out in the middle too. More info to come!
