               Your 40:1 is fine, as long as your saws are tuned to it. I have a 288 and a early 262.  Love them both.  As for the   550, if it is still under warrentee, than run what they recomend till it runs out, just to be safe.  The best combination that works for me is; Non-eythnol 89-92 oct. with Stihl Ultra oil mix.   This has been "good" up to 6-months or more for me.  Any longer than that it goes in the tractor.    If you use eythnol laced gas, figure 1-2 months at most with the Ultra in it.  Just make sure you tune the carb. to the mix ratio. Enjoy  :)
