    I was wondering what type of fuel is recommended in the 27hp liquid cooled gas Kaw engine on the LazerZ?

    Is there any advantage to regular unleaded fual or ethanol blend fuels for the engine?

    Have heard some negative comments about ethanol blend fuels in vegicles but that is just hear say so don't put much stake in what I have heard.

    Would like to know what eXmark has to say on the subject of which is better to use; ethanol blend or regular unleaded.

    Thanks for any comments!

    The is a good question that we get from time to time.

    Because Kohler and Kawasaki are our engines of choice we rely on them for the majority of our engine knowledge. Both manufacturers recommend that you use regular unleaded and not premium. Neither of them have much of an issue with blended fuels as long as the alcohol content does not exceed 10%. I guess I've never asked them for all the details as to why but I'll see if I can find some more information.
