SABER Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil

Over 45 years we have set the standard in commercial 2-cycle lubricant technology. In fact the product goes beyond 100:1 but isn’t marketed that way because corporate knew no one would believe it!

One Oil Covers All Mix Ratios

All sizes available in the Sioux Falls AMSOIL store located at the Tea Exit or in Stan Houston’s.

SABER® Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil

Probably the most talked about AMSOIL product as it’s the 2nd oldest. Developed as a 100:1 it has been proven by the SWRI lab twice now to protect at 300:1. Al knew no one would believe that so it was labeled at the get go as a 100:1. 42 years later AMSOIL stands firm suggesting 100:1 as a replacement for all 2-cycle mix ratios.
Many of our Texas landscaping accounts have been most comfortable using it at 80:1 which I too personally prefer as that ratio is the easiest to mix. See chart on back of bottle.

Price & Container Options



We tested SABER Professional at a 100:1 mix ratio compared to other two-stroke oils at 50:1, and the results are clear: SABER Professional dominated the competition in every area of performance. Even when using half as much oil, SABER Professional does a better job fighting carbon deposits that rob engines of power and reduce their service life. It helps landscapers, contractors and other professionals work more efficiently and cut costs.

Improves Engine Operation & Life

SABER Professional’s high-quality synthetic base oils burn more cleanly than other synthetic and conventional base oils. It eliminates carbon deposits that lead to stuck piston rings, clogged exhaust ports and plugged spark arrestor screens. Following 300 hours of professional-use testing in ECHO* string trimmers, SABER Professional mixed at 100:1 resisted carbon better than ECHO Power Blend* XTended Life* Universal 2-Stroke Oil mixed at 50:1 (see images). For complete test results, see the ECHO 100:1 String Trimmer Technical Study (G3470).

Cuts Oil Costs

Mixing SABER Professional at 100:1 cuts oil costs by 50 percent or more while still providing unmatched protection and performance. It allows professionals the best of both worlds — reduced costs and increased protection. Use at 100:1 in ALL equipment.

One Oil Covers All Mix Ratios

Industry Leading Engine Protection

SABER Professional has been tested and proven to provide premium protection and performance at 100:1 mix ratios. It is recommended for any mix ratio up to 100:1. When tested at half the treat rate for conventional oils (100:1 vs. 50:1), SABER Professional easily passed the industry-standard lubricity test. SABER Professional is designed for hot-operating two-stroke engines, effectively fighting carbon/deposit formation and preventing ring sticking.

Smokeless Operation

SABER Professional passes the industry-standard smoke test at the standard rich mix ratio. When mixed at the SABER Ratio, smoke is virtually undetectable. Equipment operators subjected to smoke and fumes benefit from these low-emission properties.

  • Excellent lubricity and cleanliness
  • Controls friction and helps prevent wear, plug fouling, ring sticking and exhaust port blocking
  • Smokeless – delivers fewer emissions at 80:1 and 100:1
  • Stabilizes fuel during storage
  • Delivers outstanding protection and performance at lean mix ratios

While two-stroke engines are widely used in handheld power equipment due to their high power-to-weight ratio, equipment owners and operators are faced with exhaust smoke, the task of properly mixing oil and gas for different equipment manufacturers, and premature wear and engine failure. AMSOIL SABER® Professional Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil effectively addresses these issues and more. Specially formulated for pre-mix, air-cooled applications, it withstands high heat and stress to protect engines against wear and harmful deposits. SABER Professional offers outstanding protection and performance at lean mix ratios referred to as the SABER Ratio™. Using the SABER Ratio eliminates the need for mixing different ratios for different equipment, while smoke is virtually undetectable. With AMSOIL SABER Professional, there is no compromise. It saves time and money while delivering the ultimate convenience and engine protection.

Saber 2-cycle Oil Applications

SABER Professional is specifically designed for handheld pre-mix two-stroke power equipment including, but not limited to, chainsaws, trimmers, blowers, brush cutters, edgers and shredder vacs.

Use in all handheld two-stroke equipment or other applications that specify JASO FD, ISO-L-EGD or API TC, including STIHL,* Husqvarna,* ECHO,* Toro,* Shindaiwa,* Craftsman,* 4-Mix STIHL and Hybrid 4 Shindaiwa.

Use at conventional mix ratios or the SABER® Ratio,™ regardless of the mix ratio specified for the equipment. For maximum benefit, use the SABER Ratio.

Two-Stroke Lubrication

Two-stroke engines collect some oil beneath the crankshaft; however, two-stroke engines employ a total-loss lubrication system that combines oil and fuel to provide both energy and engine lubrication. The oil and fuel are combined in the cylinder’s intake tract and lubricate critical components such as the crankshaft, connecting rods and cylinder walls.

Oil-injected two-stroke engines inject the oil directly into the engine, where it mixes with the fuel, while pre-mix two-stroke engines require a fuel-oil mixture that is combined before being installed in the fuel tank. In general, two-stroke engines are known to wear more quickly than four-stroke engines because they don’t have a dedicated lubricant source; however, high-quality two-stroke oil significantly reduces engine wear.

AMSOIL provides a full line of premium synthetic two- and four-stroke oils that provide outstanding protection and performance for recreational and work equipment.


Customer Comments:

Great 2-stroke oil

By  JIM,  a  Verified Buyer  on  January 04, 2024
I have been using this oil for over 40 years on several engines. Everything from a dirt bike to chainsaws, leaf blowers and string trimmers. I mixed this oil 100:1 over 30 years for a McCulloch chainsaw that required 40:1 mix. The only reason I don’t have that saw anymore is because the starter housing broke and parts are no longer available. The engine still started and ran perfectly, with no visible smoke.

The Absolute Best

By  MITCHELL,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Mechanicsville. Va  on  December 20, 2023
This truly is awesome stuff. I run it in my weed eaters, blowers, and chainsaws. They always start right up, but unlike the Stihl synthetic, it does not stink. It will not burn your eyes either. I still run it at 50:1 just to be super safe. I have nothing but good to say about it. If you are wavering in your decision to buy this or not, I say not to look any further. Buy it and enjoy! It is cheaper than the Stihl synthetic anyway.

Weed trimmers

1.5 ounce per gal for all makes of 2cycle .

Great stuff

By  ROBERT,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Atlanta, GA  on  October 13, 2023
It doesn’t smoke and it does what Amsoil says it will.

Saber professional is awesome

By  JAMES ,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Thompson’s Station, TN  on  September 30, 2023

Saber Professional is the absolute best two stroke lub I have ever seen. I have a Home Pro Weed eater that is twenty years old. The compression is still at factory specs and I have never had to replace the fire arrestor.

Saber used in Rotax 670 for aircraft use:

By  Cisco,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Jacksonville, FL  on  September 20, 2023
I use Saber in my pre-mix Rotax 670 aircraft engine and it’s been amazing. I first started mixing at 50:1 but have steadily reduced the mix to 70:1 enroute to 80:1. The oil works great and internal lubrication is more than sufficient. I won’t exceed the 80:1 ratio, but it saves money on oil while providing max protection. I won’t use anything else.

Only 2 stoke oil we will use

By  KT,  a  Verified Buyer  from  WI  on  September 11, 2023
We have use Amsoil 2 stroke oil in our small engines at 100:1 with great success for more than 40 years.
