If you really want to, you can remove virtually all the ethanol from fuel yourself. You need to start out from higher octane since you'll be lowering it during the process. Not worth the hassle, but it can be done.

I have a small cultivator, chainsaw, and trimmer. I'll probably go through two bottles of Trufuel over the summer. I love that my chainsaw starts up flawlessly after sitting for the winter. Heck, even my [censored] Poulan Pro trimmer starts up right away.

Real Men mix the oil. I could never bring myself to buy Pre-mixed gas for 5 times the price. Lazy takes a new meaning.

you could buy 4 stroke true fuel and mix oil into it if that would make your weenie look bigger.

I bought a few cans. I have 4 pieces of Stihl equipment. I have a few if the 5 off 5 coupons from the Oreillys promotion, so they only cost me $1.61 a can(quart). I'll give it a try. $6.44 a gallon does seem high to me for gas, but since I don't use much, what the [censored]. I definately would NOT pay full price for it though.

Sounds like snake fuel to me...

you can always get fuel stabilizer on big bottles or bulk and run forever.

If you can get non ethanolated fuel why bother with products like this?

Unless its significantley cheaper, I dont see why this company even exists.

I mix an oily 32:1 and use it in 3 different 2 strokes. I mix a gallon at a time and use it until it runs out. About a year usually. 87 octane E10 and Valvoline universal dino. The oil acts as a preservative and I keep the jug out of direct sun. I also use the fuel shut off and add a little MMO at every fillup. My stuff starts easily and runs well. How much better is whatever you use?

At Lowe's Trufuel cost $6 a qt. No it's not worth it $24 a gal. I'll just use Ams Saber and a little StaBil for the weed wacher.

AM saber isn't worth it. I'll stick to my Stihl oil

Hahahahahaaaaaaa

You are almost too funny to ignore, But not quite enough.

When was the last time your soft little hands held a chainsaw?

real men don't use chainsaw; they break the wood with their bare hands.

You can't beat that. That's about what it costs to mix up E0. $4.50ish/gal + $1.50-2.00 for a little bottle of oil.
