Default Small Engine Solution To Your Gripe

You can go to your local lawn mower shop and buy the "50 Fuel".

Sure, it cost a bit but it comes with NON-ethanol 89+ octane with synthetic oil and stabilizer already premixed in the can.

Has a 2 year shelf/storage life right out of the can. Costs me bout 5 bucks for a can and it lasts long enough to do the whole yard twice.

Same here. recently lost a weedwacker(probably could have fixed it, but got sick of working on it), and the generator carb had to be rebuilt, then I strpped the bowl screw out for the generator carb, so had to replace the whole carb.

Last night I pulled the entire unit apart, brought the gas tank in to the shop and found replacement fuel lines to put in it. If I get it back together tonight and it doesn't fix this thing you'll hear it crash land in the field behind my house from 2 states away!!!!

I just replaced the fuel lines on my gas Homelite SX-135 string trimmer last weekend. The lines deteriorated and failed. It cost me a couple bucks and 10 minutes to replace them. The trimmer is at least a dozen years old and has been run on ethanol blended gas pretty much it whole life. Minnesota has had ethanol blended gas for better than 10 years now. If it was the ethanol that ruined the lines, it took a damn long time to do it.

We are having nothing but problems with it at our shop. I at least get 2 boats in a day with problems from ethanol.
