I'm not ready yet, I still need more firewood. I should also get 15 gallons of gas for the generator to be safe. With the ethanol, even the Sta-bil doesn't seem to keep the gas from going bad after a few months. I used to be able to get 1 year after treated gas.

I've ordered new blades and a belt for the snowblower. Winter seems to show up later lately. I still need one good storm to get the last of the leaves off the tree and get them cleaned up. After that, I'll drain the gas out of the weed wackers and blower. Otherwise I'm ready Mad

I have been using that for 2 years now. It's better than the red StaBil, but not buy a lot. I put it in every gas can I bring home along with injector cleaner. Since I have started using the Chevron injection cleaner, the 2-strokes have began to run better. Costco has it on sale for $12.99 for 6, Auto Zone sells it for $7.99 a bottle.

I use Lucas Ethanol treatment in the 4wheeler and lawn mowers. Its been good for me...but I don't store that much gas either.

I was buying a part for my riding mower last weekend when the counter man suggested that I put gasoline without ethanol in all my power equipment at only $8 a quart. Tractor holds around 8 gallons. They are out of their minds!

Wish I was closer, Rich ... I'd bring you some. Filled up the little Italian staff car Friday- BP Amoco Ultimate Premium 91 octane non ethanol ... $2.79/ gallon. Use it in all my power equipment (trimmer, chainsaw, tractor), too ... you can really tell the difference. Quite a few stations are now carrying non- ethanol gas in my neck of the woods. Good thing too ... ethanol bites the big one. $8.00/quart? .... your parts guy must be trying for early retirement.

Greg,
Thanks for the list. There is one station in NJ, Lucky for me it is only about 40 minutes away in a rural town. Once I clean the tank in my Dodge - M-37 I'm going to need about 30 gallons. I'm also going to look at the premium gas in town as the repair place recommended using it over the regular I have been using.
