    A few months ago a old friend of mine I've know for 40 years went and bought a Stihl saw at some dealer in my neighbor state of Maryland. He brought it to me to sharpen. Naturally I had to give him the riot act for buying elsewhere. He whimped out and said well I needed a saw right away and I was over in Maryland that day. I said well take her back to Maryland and get it sharpened. He goes but I'm here today, I go so whats your point. He gets whimpy not realizing I'm just pestering him. I warned him for buying elsewhere that it would haunt him. I sharpened his saw, we had a few laffs and away he went. Today came his haunting.

    He brings me the same saw complaining it won't start. I go thats whatcha get for buying it somewhere else. He says no, I was using it, refueled it and then it quit running. I go serves ya right. He goes well will you take a look at it. I go ya should take it back where ya bought it. He goes awwwwwwwwww man come on. I go what did I tell ya, told you it would come back to haunt you. He goes okokokokokok now take a look at it will ya, I go give me the dayumm thing.

    I open the fuel cap and the fuel is red. I go what is in this tank. He goes Stihl mix. I go oh no its not. He swears up and down it is. I get my handy jar and dump the fuel and give it a wiff. Hmmm its not even gas, its something else. I know what it is but I'm being sly. I spilled alittle on the table and tried lite it, it would not burn. He goes well what is it, I go its diesel fuel. He goes whatttttttttttttttt, no way. I go no way my azz, thats off road diesel in red tint. Re-fueled the saw with good mix and varoooom. He goes I must have got my cans mixed up. Now comes the good part. I said I'm telling all your brothers what you did and better yet do you remember me telling you this saw would haunt you, he goes yes, I go well ya beleive me now. He says I will never buy another saw from anyone else again, I go ya best not now give me $5.00 for a Wendy burger, he did, we laffed, all is good..

    Topping that a buyer of mine brought in a little 180 complaining it won't run and groweling I just bought it 5 months ago. He's expecting warranty of course. I open the fuel cap, pure gas, I show him and he swears its mix. I go no way. He goes yes and growels I still have the can on the truck. Now its on. I say great, go get your can. He does. I dumped out my buddies diesel and pour his fuel in my jar, ut oh, pure gas. He says no way, I got the bottle of Stihl mix to prove it. I go great, get it. He does. I pour alittle in the fuel and it turns a nice pretty green. Now he's dumbfounded. I go you beleive me now. He's ticked. I pull the muffler off his 180 and its scored to hell, he's ticked even more. It gets better, he takes that saw back to the truck and brings in a 361 for me to sharpen. I opened the fuel cap for just a look see and sure enuff its got a 1/4 tank left of pure gas. I go well lookie here, another saw with pure gas. He isn't having any of it. I get my jar and dump in the fuel, pure gas plain as day. I go you want me to pour alittle of that mix oil in it to prove it to you AGAIN. He's like you SOB,LOLOLOL

    Never agru with a man that has a jar!!!!!

    You better believe it. He goes well it can be fixed. I go sure can but time you pay for the parts and labor your back to the cost of a new saw, its only a $199.00 saw. He frowned. I go you want it repaired, I can do it. He goes no. I put the muffler back on and said there ya go, 10.00 please. He paid. Had he not argued so hard about the pure gas I wouldn't have charged him, I rarely ever charge for pulling a muffler. He got charged a bonehead fee, oppps, I mean a two Wendy burger fee,haha

    I'm sure it was, only a 1/4 tank of pure gas left in it. He wouldn't let me yank the muffler to look, guess he was afraid of another bonehead fee, oppps, Wendy meal fee,....

    You are right on Tommy. I find all kinds of weird looking stuff coming out of gas tanks.

    I had an odd one the other day. looked like old mixed gas with some kind of dark red liquid that settled out to the bottom.
