They do every Spring until they run out, which is usually about this time of year. I go and buy 10 or so gallons and it lasts me the year.

If I couldn’t afford $8 for a few hours of flying then I’m in the wrong hobby.
Eury... You are completely correct. With what the rest of this hobby costs, Coleman's shouldn't be a problem.

But there is more:
I've tried to simplify my gas fuel routine. There is a station 5 miles up the road and it sells 93 octane fuel with no ethanol. I buy 20 gallons at a time and put it in all my gas powered equipment. That includes my 738cc Kawasaki mower down to my 25cc Roto/Stick model airplane. Much of my equipment doesn't benefit from the higher octane and fuel in the mower rarely sits long enough to need alcohol free fuel. Still, it is just easier to buy one fuel and put it in everything. I also put fuel stabilizer in ALL my equipment including my motorcycles (but not the cars). This routine costs a few pennies more but all of my stuff starts and runs even if it's been stored for years. There is one type of "gas" in the garage and I feel good about putting it in any and everything I own.

"Well, Nothing bad can happen now."

Wish I had a place close like that. I have to go to the airport that is about 20mi away to get 91 with no ethanol. For me, everything that takes Premix (heli, plane, chainsaw, blower, trimmer) gets Camp fuel with Stihl at 40:1, and everything else gets the stuff from the airport. Luckily I don't use much of either, so I only replenish my 5 gallon gas can 2-3 times a year and the camp fuel once a year.

Walmart’s near me tend to stock the camp fuel year round, but the max they carry is 6 gallons. If one Walmart is out, often another one will have some.

I run Coleman in all two strokes including the chain saw, string trimmer and hedge clippers. The 4 strokes get ethanol free gas. Carb repairs have gone down since using these fuels.
