Pre-mixed 50:1 fuel

Stihl MotoMix fuel review

When our chainsaw first started having trouble I thought it might be an ethanol problem.

Dumping out the questionable fuel and adding a small amount of MotoMix helped me to quickly rule out an issue with the fuel.

Pre-mixed 2 cycle fuel is a sure fire way to know you don't have ethanol that's attracted water to your tank. It's also a good idea to leave a little bit of this stuff in the system to prevent rust that might happen over the winter storage months.

Does that price tag say $8.75 for a quart of fuel mixture? Pretty expensive troubleshooting!
