I know I need to add stabilizer to my lawn mower but what about my weedeater & blower?
Yup, do it all. Use Stabil, avilable at Walmart, K-Mart and auto places. Makes for 1 pull starts in the spring.
use echo or stihl mix. its a proven product and the stabilizer is already in the mix.
y'up, either drain it or use stabil in everything. I do both depending on equipment and have not had any problems.
We use fuel stabilizer ,All year long, When our cans are empty we add more.Dont have to worry any more about , start ups.
I have never used Stabil.
I use good quality fuel in all my equipment.
Never had a problem.
I dont see a need for it at all.
Sammy,stabil is for long term storage,in a plastic tank or can,good quality fuel will degrade in as little as 2 months.My stuff may sit from december until april sometimes.I do not use it all year if im running the equipment regularly,but in mid november,ill put it in my 5 gallon premix jug,and fill the mower with it,since the end is coming near as far as running it goes.
How do you know your fuel is fresh. plus you may not ever have a prob but if you do it is a pain to clean out the system.
Definitely use it in the 2 cycles, the carburaters seem to gel up faster with the oil mix.
I never used it for years, tried some last winter and again this winter on 2 strokes.With our small mowers I always ran em till they stopped.
