NEVER, the ole fuel goes in my farmall along with a little gas treatment and it digests it quite readily.
"waste not, want not"..:-)
Well, actually any gas I am not sure of the oil mixture, or is kind of "old", goes in my 53 Willis Jeep. I think it would run on kerosene. LOL. I don't waste much either.
jross..... Our currant "weed wacker" is a troybilt, made for people who do yard work and such, and it cost $300 and change. Sure worth more than a little gas I don't know about.
I like the Husquvarna chainsaws myself.
I have three of them, all older than the hills, and still running strong. I am getting old, and I don't run two of them very often because they are so big and powerful that they scare me.
Heck all chainsaws scare me. One slip up and they will right eat your lunch. I treat chainsaws with the same respect that I do firearms. I use them, but I try to be extra careful. Maybe that is why I still have both legs.
Getting the oil mixture right is important for the 2 cycle stuff. I would rather error on the oil rich that the other way. Of course I try not to over do it.
