regular 87, midgrade 89 or premium 91?
I use regular 87 for all my equipment. As long as things are running right I think that this is the gas to use unless your manual recommends a higher grade gas.
I use 87 also and things seem to work fine
I wouldn't use more than 87 unless your owners manual calls for it. I know in newer vehicles, running higher than 87 can have adverse effects. Not sure if it's the same for power tools.
My Shind. dealer told me to use 91. Because of the high compression engines. So that's what I always run in everything Truck/2-Stroke. Not much of a choice on diesel!
I have always used 87. Dealer has always said to use at least 89 in all my equipment. I've never had any problems related to the fuel.
We use premium in everything. Costs a little more but is better in the long run. Less gumming in the carbs. Better performance. Less maintenance. Same goes for the trucks. You can always tell if the cheap stuff was put in. Power loss noisy valves and poor fuel economy tells it all.
:blob3: i also use super unleaded in my 2 cycle equip. with smokeless 2 stroke, havent had any engine failures in years.
I use 91 in all the equipment. Things just run better on the higher octane gas.
87 here, man who can afford the good
