Can't you get ethanol free gasoline in CT? How about race gas? Gotta be cheaper than what you are paying for that stuff. I get ethanol free gas (89 octane from the Marina) for less than $6/gallon here in Hawaii (always in the top 5 for highest average gas prices nationwide). Race gas (100 octane) can be bought for about $9/gallon.

im trying it out for my ice auger as it gets used over the winter and sits for extended time in the garage. as i said they advertise 2 year shelf life which is good vs the pump gas which breaks down in about 2 weeks and the ethonal sux in power equiptment that sits

As long as the gas doesn't have ethanol, it should be fine for over a year. If you can keep the gas at a relatively steady temperature and add Stabil, it should keep for over two years.

 

Yes, I agree ethanol sux. The environmentalists and legislators don't realize that adding ethanol to gas reduces the energy output when burned. Less energy = less power = longer run times = more fuel consumed = back at square one.

From what I know about octane: If you use a 94 octane fuel in a regular car that does not need 94, the fuel is actually counter productive. So other than the fuel being ethanol free, the fuel isn't any better with a high octane number. I know you're not using it in a car but it's the same theory.

i think the extra money you spend on gas could buy a new engine when that one burns out. just my opinion. also and i'm just theorizing on this one. since its a higher octane/ slower burning gas, wouldn't you increase the chances of overheating the engine. i know its not a problem in cars cause of the water cooling but on an air cooled engine it seems like the hotter temps associated with the slower burn would overheat the engine.

its a strike master ice auger so heat is no issue. i can run 2 types of plugs oem and one that puts out a bigger hotter spark. i want this to run smooth whaen im cutting holes in the ice. they half gal i have should last me this season and next depending on how many trips i make and how many holes i make. the past 3 years ive had carb problems with the pump gas eating and warping fuel lines and gumming up the carb and destroying the fuel pump diaphram. i figured id try it to see if it makes a difference.

this stuff will probably solve the rotting and warping although for the gumming i'd still drain the carb at the end of the season.
