Re: Fuel Mixture: Is 25:1 and 32:1 Really Necessary?
I have 2 gas cans, actually 3 but I'll get to that in a minute... I have a 50:1 can for my Stihl saws using their synth oil and a 40:1 can for the trimmers, blowers and Poulan Pro saws using whatever synth oil I find. If I'm gonna use one of my older saws that take 32:1 I use the 40:1 and just add a little more oil in the tank...
The third can is for old premix from either of the other cans... so the mix varies. I usually get that close to 40:1 or better, add some seafoam or marvel mystery oil and use it up in my beater trimmers or brushing saws... Even if it's old it runs okay to cut brush and I'm not worried if I kill one of those beaters. So far I haven't killed anything.
I don't even know how many saws and trimmers/blowers/etc I have off the top of my head... The shed seems to be full of stuff.
