    Used to run 87 in everything back when it was real gas without too many issues.

    Then we ran 87 ethanol crap and had nothing but problems.

    Now I have 90 octane rec gas, back to 100% gas, no ethanol. Problems have gone away since.

    Maybe with the corn crop damage the EPA will stop forcing ethanol production for a year or two.

    87 octane and zero ethanol. Noticed a huge difference (negative) when I was in a pinch and ran 93 octane 15% ethanol. Got ethanol free back in the trimmers asap and no more problems.

    Where can I find 92 octane at?
