it may be a bit funny, but it's helpful, find gasoline without alcohol in your state

Why do you find this funny.

Ethanol gas is the perfect example of what's wrong with American Politics

I just burn it. My motor doesn't care and I have a walbro on a 16 year old weedwacker that doesn't mind either. Just don't leave that stuff in your carb for more than a month without running it or just giving the primer a few pushes. Thats what I do in the winter and she runs fine.

Octane
If you looked at the ethanol free stuff in my area, most of it is 94 to 95 octane. I remember when I tried Shell premium 93 octane I lost about 50 rpms on the top end. My motors aren't designed for high octane so they actually lost power compared to regular 87.

But that's just a side note. You can still fly and lose a little on the top end for people who want to use ethanol free stuff, I don't bother since I fly year round and to be honest I don't use my weed whackers or leaf blower year round and they still work every summer.

I run Colman through my motors and weedwacker. All my heli's are stored in the house. So I don't have all those fuel issues...

and
I know a guy that mixes 110 Avgas 50/50 with Regular Unleaded pump gas for his stock G23 in his 1005, he has been doing this since the mid 90s, he does this to have a cleaner fuel, his engine has never been apart in all these years
Why do you find this funny.
I found it funny that some one took all that time to make a site with all that info from all those states. that is all

Ive seen similar discussions that go on for pages and pages on woodheat/arborist forums about whats the best kind of gas to run in chainsaws.

The people who swear by avgas I always found interesting. Other than the fast it has less additives I dont see what the benefit is to running 100 or 110 octane in an engie designed for 87. I odnt believe our little lawn equipment derived two strokes are very picky about fuel really.

If you do run avgas make sure to check your plugs regularly for lead fouling. Even 100LL has something like 4x as much lead as old leaded auto gas did in the 70s, and 110 has more than that. Id rather not breathe the exhaust either.

well, if those Saw engines are Lugged down low and too much Throttle is given, then that is when the Higher Octane will be a benefit for the engine, you also do not know how those guys use their Saws, those guys may be very hard on their Saws and trying to cut more resulting in Lugging down their engine more than others do,

all and all with that said, in my thinner years, I have owned six 2st Dirt Bikes, and I don't ever remember hearing any of them Pinging or Detonate while being Lugged down, and that goes for my 11y.o. Weed Eater too, but I have heard Glow Engines Detonate

Me, I just want a clean, Alcohol free gas

2st Dirt Bikes, when stock,thay have a pretty low compression, if you put a compression gauge on a stock 125 you only get about 125 psi, its only when you start modifying them, that you have to use higher octane.

P.S. sorry for the spelling or the grammar I am dyslexic!
