Was wondering which grade of fuel most of you use?
Does it really matter in the end?
You might want to get a bit more specific with your question.
Lawn mowers, line trimmers, grass blowers, your truck?
87 octane, the cheap stuff.
Da cheep stuff
I was mainly asking about mowers and small engine stuff!
I use regular unleaded (87 octane) gas with Stihl fuel mixture for my line trimmers and blowers. I use super unleaded in my Z.
Echo recommends higher octane fuel to keep the engine from gumming up etc.
Your exhaust port won't clog as much with a high octane fuel.
Most manufactures recomend a min of 87 and some recomend 87 period.
I ran supreme, ultra, super and other (89 and 92) but didn't notice the differance except the end price.
That is why I run 87.
I use amoco 92 octane in everything, things run alot better with that gas. just my .02. The truck gets 87.
Same as WLM.....Amoco 92 in mowers 2 cycle......87 in truck. It DOES make a difference in the small engines, especially the 2 cycle. Just my opinion......
