    Very informative- I put Stabil in my tools at the end of the season. Now I'm considering using it in all my mixed gas. My Stihl Kombi tool is very sensitive to bad fuel. Maybe using Stabil will help that.

    I kind of suspected something like this due to the fact that gas a week or two old made my blower run like crap. Dump out the two week old fuel, put in fresh fuel and ran like a charm. Put Sta-Bil in everything today. Thanks for the info.
