Re: Ethanol killing small engines
It is official, ETHANOL SUX.....
I'm in my very first gallon, and things start going hoinky.
A decrease in power, hiccups.
Second gallon, and it takes three pulls or more to start, when I had it down to two at the most.
Washed the air filter Saturday, then Sunday getting the newspaper, it WOULD NOT CRANK.
Bought a spark plug today, but on a 20 mile run to Arab, that decrease in power was evident.
I'm still running 87 octane, reckon moving to 89 or 91 will help?
I use regular Stihl oil, less confusion breaking in new engines for customers, but guess I do an upgrade in that department too.
