Was wondering which grade of fuel most of you use?
Does it really matter in the end?

You might want to get a bit more specific with your question.
Lawn mowers, line trimmers, grass blowers, your truck?

I use regular unleaded (87 octane) gas with Stihl fuel mixture for my line trimmers and blowers. I use super unleaded in my Z.

Echo recommends higher octane fuel to keep the engine from gumming up etc.

Your exhaust port won't clog as much with a high octane fuel.

87
Most manufactures recomend a min of 87 and some recomend 87 period.
I ran supreme, ultra, super and other (89 and 92) but didn't notice the differance except the end price.
That is why I run 87.

I use amoco 92 octane in everything, things run alot better with that gas. just my .02. The truck gets 87.

Same as WLM.....Amoco 92 in mowers 2 cycle......87 in truck. It DOES make a difference in the small engines, especially the 2 cycle. Just my opinion......
