AMSOIL has upgraded the formula of Saber Professional 2-Cycle Premix Oil for 2014. The biggest perceptible change other than the packaging label update is the addition of a gasoline stabilizer component to the premix oil. We also note from the specification numbers that they have tweaked the formula throughout.
I have been using Saber Pro in my 2-stroke string trimmer for several years and can confidently attest that the previous formula was excellent. The fuel stabilizer addition is a solid move that makes this product a complete package.
The biggest selling feature of Saber Pro is something that is not new. With this synthetic premix comes the ability to use a single fuel/oil ratio for all the two-stroke implements you own. Saber Pro mixed at anywhere from 75:1 to 100:1 will IMPROVE the performance and wear protection of engines requiring mix ratios of 20:1 through 100:1. This has been true since AMSOIL first released a synthetic premix oil in the mid-1970′s making this tried and true technology.
Less Oil — Better Protection?
How can less oil in the mix provide better protection? AMSOIL uses a 100% synthetic base oil that can deliver up to six times the film strength of conventional oil.
That is serious engine protection and is why the product can run at multiple mix rates. I feel far more confident using Saber Pro at 80:1 than regular premix oil at 50:1. The improved throttle response, clean engine internals and reduced exhaust smoke are wonderful bonuses.
