As far as I know it is still out there running...The old Murray frame rusted out and I sold the engine...
It'll probably be in the Briggs and Scrapped Them museum one day...

Do you know what is in it?

Do you?
You don't.

Why, because they don't tell you!

Why, because it is not in their best interest!

Why, because if they did you'd know!

But those of us who know, we found out how to find what's in ANY fuel additive, by reading the section pertaining to its contents as is contained in the MSDS sheet, they can't lie on an msds sheet which is required by the government to find out what's in it, one part of it is actually lighter fuel, but the best part is that it costs $20 a quart which translates to $80 a GALLON!

Let me tell you something...
I can buy Stock Car RACING fuel, 109 octane LEADED, which...
Racing fuel consists of mostly additives.
For under $10 a gallon.
