    I used synthetic Amsoil @ 50:1 with no problems, so you should be fine.

    I also use the Stihl Ultra at 50:1 with all of my chainsaws and my LB's no matter what the age. There are purists who do not believe in this, but its just what I do. I have never fried a piston with Stihl Ultra.

    I also run 50:1 with Poulan 2-stroke oil. No problems after many hours over the last few years (including both D- and F-series engines).

    One thing to bear in mind is that the technology of these lubricants has advanced a lot in the last couple of decades. I'll bet that, if the 2-stroke gurus at LB were writing user manuals today, they'd recommend 50:1.
