I bought a new blower and will only use Startron in my 4-stroke engines. My initial reason for purchasing Startron was to negate any issues that ethanol would have on my equipment. I'm sure we've all seen the photos of gummed-up parts and corroded seals that ethanol can and will cause.
Do yourself a favor....forget the additives! What for?? Isn't the gas you buy expensive enough? Sheesh!!!
It ain't rocket science! far.
