Why in the world do people keep bringing up alcohol free gasoline.
Alcohol effects rubbers and carbs.
And it draws water. So when old it will pick up so much water out of the air, the ethanol and water separates from your gas.
Now you are at risk filling your apliances with water (droplets).
Like I said, I don't use my two stoke gas for months sometimes.
An other factor is that in Germany you can get ethanol free almost everywhere for not much more.

It's hard in New Zealand to even find ethanol fuel especially for us down south island. Feel sorry for you buggers the flip side is we pay through the nose for it

You must have a weak corn lobby.

I laugh at the fact that the only place in town that sells ethanol free here is a gas station at the farmer co-op.

Yeah bugger all corn gets grown here. A heap of maize but it generally gets feed to cows.

Should be eating corn isn't there a food shortage globally?

Schaeffer's 7000 at 32:1. Red armor ran fine at 40:1 and I've ran muereyama?? at 40:1. Since getting a ported 7910 I've switched everything to Schaeffer's 7000 at the builders suggestion.

My local Stihl dealer lives beside the local airport.
He buys 103LL aviation fuel at the airport and sells it in his shop.
$7.50/gal!!!!!

Haha I know an older guy with a victa 2 stroke mower. He mixes his fuel by the amount of smoke. He grabs what ever oil is closest and pours in a guesstimate and starts mowing and adds more if he is not satisfied with the smoke lol. No joke a victa will run on the worst fuel you could imagine
