    93 octane, with STIHL premium 2 cycle mix in the gray container and you should be fine

    when we buy our new Stihl equipment they come with about 25 minutes of fuel in them. Dealer says to run that empty before adding your own fuel... special break in mixed gas I’m thinking

    Like most everyone has said, I let mine warm up for 5-10 minutes then don't let off the throttle until the job is finished.
