Back when I was street racing I used av fuel. I would mix 4 ounces of marvel mystery oil to 10 gals of fuel. Av fuel is very dry marvel mystery oil acts as a lubricant for the valves. My father in-law put av gas in his push mower. It ran good for awhile until it burnt the valves up. It would cut 4ft grass without bogging lol.

Would there be any advantage to buying higher octane fuel with Ethanol? There is a station that is selling "extra Supreme" "Ultra Supreme" and "racing"? 94, 96, 98 and 101.

87 octane without ethanol. These motors are not high compression. Running high octane fuel you are Just wasting your money. If non ethanol fuel is unavailable in your area. Then 87 with ethanol is fine. Use a stabilizer like marine grade stabil.

Second what marbles said. If you can't find ethanol free, put some stabil or Startron in the gas. No need to run high octane. Waste of money.

dont know for sure if it the same site from 3yrs. ago. the best i can get is 91 octane..
this gas is better for 2-cycle engine's also..
the non-ethonal 91, runs fine in my, kick/arse RedMax weed-eater, an RedMax chainsaw. both are light weight. i run Stihl .105 in the weed whacker kind of a yellow/green color, border's on a translucent/florescent scale. i never seen string last this long. wish i could find a cat #, or part #.. might have to break out the magnifying glass. i get great mileage on both the gas, an string, an RedMax. [sound's like a commercial dont it]. im not an actor, an they cant pay me enough to lie. just not my way..
i will tell ya this.. if ya buy bologna, that has that red wrapper around it, when ya pull a slice out, dont miss the garbage can. you, and your dog wont appreciate it, when the dog duz business, butt the wrapper is still there in the end.
sorry, i was in a moment. poor Bam Bam, ya cant really tug, or pull on it.
least ya want to get bit.

i dont think i would let the gas sit to long, even with a stabilizer. especially in the atv,,, nor use it, if it sat to long [ethanol gas]..
got alcohol in it, alcohol bonds with water/moisture.

red max

i'm going on my 3rd tank of gas, with just one spool of, .105 stihl string. i been cutting some thick stuff, like tree limbs, that stick out to far, and weeds, vines.
it is a commercial/home weed whacker. i.e. light commercial. cut's better than a echo, 225 SRM, lighter in weight. less carb problems.
