    Very true. Finding good gas is getting harder and harder.

    I held out for the longest. I can mix my own.

    One or two carb repairs/replacements and that little extra is pretty much nothing.

    I have a buddy who is in the logging business. He still mixes his gas but everything gets used daily or almost daily.

    My stuff sits as much, if not more, than it is used so I buy the premix stuff.

    It hurts a cheap skate like myself too.

    I could prob use airplane fuel and mix my own and it prob be a little cheaper than pre mix.That pre mix stuff is nice and that gallon will prob last me almost all summer between the weedeater and blower.So not to bad.I can tell you it takes longer to burn a tank of pre mix plus a lil more HP.

    The Jonsered the same. It seems to get better 'mileage' on the pre-mix.

    The blower on the other hand, seems like it runs out faster.

    The Toro weed eater seems to go for ever on the pre-mix.

    I inherited a Stihl from my father-in-law. I think it was the one Noah used to cut trees to build the ark but I could be wrong. It is back when things were made with metal, real metal. It is heavy as all get out and being in the logging industry it maybe had a million trees on its resume. Shitty gas got the carb too.

    Same with the older Farm Boss 029 too.

    Many a 2 stroke has been ruined with the crappy gas out there.

    I like to use premix if i know im only using the tool for the season and not everyday. Husq makes a good premix as well but for my weed eater and blowers, i still like to mix.

    Well easiest way to lose warranty claim is the say you used bad gas.See they can't tell me that because I am using Echo pre mix only in my echo weedeater.I am also running that in my Hitachi blower.Its good stuff man.

    Cool thing about Stihl is if you have a receipt for their oil, you get another 4 year factory warranty.

    I got a 5 year warranty on my Echo and didn't have to do anything .Only thing it wont cover is bad gas and to my knowledge Stihl won't either.

    Jonsered offers the same thing. 2 years off the bat. Add two years if you buy the Jonsered/Red Max pre-mix fuel. I think I bought I bought four cans.

    .More folks buying weedeaters,chainsaws,blowers,etc etc than ever before.How many do you figure actually read the manual to see what fuel the company recommended lol.So they stop by first gas station they see and fill the gallon jug up with 87 lol.Wonder why it don't right!

    Few years ago I got a Stihl weed eater I used it about 3 times and my cousin came by and asked to borrow it.Never thought nothing about it and said sure his had just quit .You think the light would have come on and I would have asked what happened to his lol.I never gave it a thought and he brought it back a few hrs later so no big deal.Next week I crank the fucker up and it's running like total fucking shit.Sure enough he ran some shitty 87 through it .I poured it out and put some good in it .We had a big discussion on fuel after that .He admitted he had already put 3 carb kits on his weedeater lol.Dammmm .

    Dont you people learn.....Always buy Stihl and Pro. If you buy the back handle MS201 its better than anything up to the MS360 Pro. These are worth the extra money. I have some modifications on both new and older models that make them sound like mini harleys LOL not to mention how they run.

    I have an MS460 Magnum that I have put through hell for about 12 years now and it stihl starts after three pulls cold LOL.
