Echo created this amazing info-graph recently that reminds us about the dangers that Ethanol could cause for small engines in power equipment.

The key to a healthy fuel hygiene is:

  1. Only purchase recommended fuel for your equipment.
  2. Only buy enough fuel for a maximum of 30 days at a time.
  3. Use self-venting fuel containers that keep air from your fuel.
  4. Use recommended fuel stabilizers and oil mix
  5. Shake your fuel container before use. It really does help.
  6. Store your fuel container in a dry and cool area between use.
  7. Drain fuel from equipment if storing for longer than 30days.

This list is even a littler conservative. It is best to totally rethink your use of gasoline in small engines. We see way too many repair situations that were caused by fuel related damage.
