Better yet all my small engine gas is not 100% ethanol free!

I wish I could buy ethanol free gas here but the state won't allow us to sell it

It'll likely last another ten !
Leaf blower was 7 yrs old, weed eater the same and it's still going. When the weed eater has a fit, it will go in the trash also. Easier to buy a new one than mess with the old one.

Leaf blowers and weed eaters - what are these things you speak of?

Are they what my yard man who comes every Wednesday carries in his truck
Trip going good, I just start them for TOWTA. I ride the Cub Cadets.
