    I'm able to get 87,93, 111,114,118 octane non-ethanol gas. Of course the 118 is about $13 gal.

    91-93 octane in all 2 strokes. 87 octane was making my backpacks run backwards on shut off, and burned one of my brand new Redmax trimmers up. 87 octane in all 4 strokes. Ethanol doesn't bother me. I burn so much gas that I don't think it matters. I can't afford to go to the only gas station in town that sells ethanol free gasoline. It is too far out of my way.
