Final ethanol inquiry
On the way back to Arab yesterday, I passed a local tree trimming company setting up, so on the return, I stopped to ask about how they handle the situation with the 2 cycle chainsaws.
They said it is all about not letting it sit too long, but if YOU DO mix big batches, there is one type of 2 cycle oil mix (mind goes blank, either Craftsman or Homelite) that has a stablizer. Like me, they only use Chevron.
But that is the key difference, ethanol seperates the mix a little faster than old style pure blends, and 2 weeks is the "man on the street" recommended shelf life, no matter what the scientists claim.
