    Toro Manuals call for TCW-3 rated oil. Basically outboard oil.

    I have been using Amsoil saber pro mixed at 60:1 to 50ish :1 ratio.

    There is a running debate on Bobistheoilguy re: running Amsoil at 100:1....? :rolleyes:

    I would like to run the best oil to ensure longest engine life.

    I use Mercury 2 stroke oil. Burns the cleanest of any oil I have ever used

    Are you using "Saber Outboard" or "Saber Professional"...?

    I'm not really sure what ill affect using 2 cycle oil for an air cooled engine will have on the Toros...

    Do you mix it at 50:1 or 100:1?

    That's impressive that Opti-2 recommends the use at 100:1 and even under multi-application one oil fits all - unlike Amsoil.
