    Just to put it out there on the world wide web.

    I dont care if I look like a kid with a dunce cap. Im tired of the ER visits. I am especially sensitive to an oil and gas mixture. I put it in the push mower, I suffer, I use regular gas, I am fine (dont use mix, no brainer). I use a trimmer, I suffer cuz ya just cant use regular gas in that or a blower.

    In the summer, I suffer when I do properties that I can ride....too dusty and too many mold spore flying around.

    The next time someone sees a 250lb brother wearin one, It could possibly be me.

    The sufferin' ends next year.

    Are you sensitive to a petroleum based 2 cycle mix in particular or anytime gas and oil are mixed? I am curious because I wonder of you have tried Amsoil 100:1 mix or not. I am hoping you can use a synthetic mix. Gas is still obviously a petroleum component but the oil will be less likely to smoke heavily as a petrol 2 cycle oil will.
    I definately can believe that the mold spores and things of that nature will trigger the asthma. Being a paramedic too allows me to also understand exactly what you are going thru. No fun to be sitting thru a&a treatments whenever things go to hell. 250lbs would qualify you as a middleweight in my ambulance.:waving: Good Luck.

    Just go buy you a bottle of Primatene mist--16$ at the drug store. That will relax your lungs quickly and probably save you the big expense of going to a hospital. I use to have it when I was a lot younger. Mask will help but they are not full proof...
