    I've sprayed octane out of a bp sprayer with great results. When momentum wasn't cutting it with the clover. I have a PG but will not use octane out of that since it is a very hot mix you want to have good control on how much gets sprayed.

    Those low volume high speed sprayers do not give the same coverage as flat fan nozzles operated at 40 PSI and 40 GPA. Even the Chemlawn Gun is not the same. I use nothing but flat fan nozzles to apply herbicides to lawns. What you will probably see if your coverage is not complete is little burn spots on the leaves and not the rapid destruction of the green growth that you are paying extra for.
