    Station near me is now carrying Ethanol free gas. So I'm going to give it a try and see what happens. It's about 30 cents more a gallon.

    The station near my house is offering that too. I'm thinking of running it this season and not adding startron this season!

    Every station here has it. I have a couple of jonsered trimmers and none of them will run on crap. 100% gas they run like new. The other gas they run til they get hot shut off and won't start for about an hour

    I'll gladly pay 30 cents more per gallon to eliminate the ethanol-induced equipment problems. I need to find some "real" gas nearby.

    Tell you what.I can already tell the difference ,little more zip and not that roughness at stop lights. But for my hand powered stuff I always run 93 gas in it.

    Didn't you buy your gently used truck from Jed Clampett?
