This will be the one year only model that costs more than the blower it came off of.

As long as the mechanic and the bottle aren't working on the same job,
It usually works...You wouldn't want to spend $30 on snake oil to fix a $25 carb...

Not really....it sounds french for something...

Emmision standards and crappy fuel have sent a lot of people looking to find the holy grail of fuel additives.
A solution that cancels out all the bad stuff ethanol is doing, as well as repairing all the damage that its done.
It ain't there and it ain't coming. You only have 2 choices......Pay a mechanic......or become one.

Seek out and FIND ethanol-FREE gasoline. Then, use it in all your BRAND NEW unadulterated equipment.

http://pure-gas.org/

CLICK on your state and town......or nearby town.
