We started using marine fuel 2 years ago and haven't had an issue with our hand held equipment since.

Octane actually contributes to a slower burn, fwiw.

I only run premium in my 2-strokes...and all my equip fuel is ethanol-free, FTW.

I have always used cheap gas and have never had a problem with any of my small engines. Maybe just luck... I don't know. I'll keep using it until I see a reason not to.
