    Just had to say, I'm inspired by all these wonderful suggestions & headed outside to mix up a little concoction myself. Thanks! How else can you pay $10 for such satisfaction & who knew that having a gas can stolen could bring so much heart-felt joy?

    Sure hope they go for it. Not sure if I used enough fuel in my mixture. Was already a diesel can that had some DIESEL 911 residue leftover. Maybe they'll think that there's just an additive to the gasoline, they could say that again.

    Im not going to go out & look for trouble in any sense only if it comes by my way & needs addressing otherwise im just as trashy & I wouldn't expect the trashy types to be hanging around Lawnsite.

    Man lucky you, while I have had a few things spit out that I never imagined would have. I hit a long long long dog run cable that fell down once. A mess. The worse was like a 3' steel cable with loops on each end. Got wrapped up in there big time and threw the deck belt. :hammerhead:

    Once I cut a 20" circle from industrial grade expanded metal & welded to the Dixie Chopper Magic Mulcher which attaches to the blade. At about 2700 r.pm.s the steel stretched & come to a screeching stop. Oops! Scratched the whole idea of having a moving/mulching deck ceiling.

    I got my hedge trimmers chainsaws and my straight gas can stolen last week (they left the mixed gas). I have filled up an old gas can with gas, bleach, and water and set it next to my mixed gas or near my trailer every night. I feel like I'm fishing waiting for a good catch!
