Answer: 
Premixed, no need to shake can, just open and pour. High-octane for more power. Clean-burning, does not produce black residue. Keeps engine clean inside and out. No need to add fuel preservative. Safe to leave in tank for next season. Ethanol-free – will not harden fuel lines. Ethanol-free – does not cause deterioration of engine membranes and seals.

As a homeowner and seasonal outdoor power tool user, its convenience and the fact that it has kept my string trimmer’s engine running trouble free and running better after switching to TRUFUEL makes the added expense worth it for me. “Wanna keep that tank grommet on your Echo trimmer from cracking and leaking prematurely? Well, use TRUFUEL, duh. :)” Read Less

Answer: 
$24/gal? I don't think so. I'm shocked at some of the comments on here. 100% gas around where I live is currently about 2 bucks a gallon. I take my good ol' steel gas cans to the station, fill 'em up and bring them home. I can have over 10 gallons of pure, 100%, ethanol-free gas for less money than what you people are eagerly willing to pay for a quart. I can easily mix the oil and gas to a 50:1, 40:1 or Read More

I take my good ol' steel gas cans to the station, fill 'em up and bring them home. I can have over 10 gallons of pure, 100%, ethanol-free gas for less money than what you people are eagerly willing to pay for a quart. I can easily mix the oil and gas to a 50:1, 40:1 or even the old 32:1 mix, if I wish. (2.6 oz., 3.2 oz., and 4 oz. of oil per one gal gas, respectively.) I have different cans for different mixes. Splash a little Sta-Bil in it if you like. To answer someone else's question, no, the mix doesn't have to be perfect. And one more thing. All my small engines run great. But of course, I do the routine maintenance on them, including cleaning up and winterizing. A full tank of gas with Sta-Bil is good for end of season. It'll start right up in the spring. I'm not an old lady on a rant, I'm fairly young, but just don't like to waste money on simple things. Hope this helps. Read Less

Answer: 
The saying:" pay me now or pay more later" applies here. Using ethanol free fuel keeps your expensive equipment running correctly. No metal being eating away due to ethanol. Keep running good pure fuel and oil mix. Great shelf life on this product, Not like ethanol. Maybe 2 weeks before breaking down.

I think the price can be justified because (1) TrueFuel or its equivalent is a virtual necessity for proper operation of small, 2-cycle engines, (2) the equivalent would be a hassle to duplicate, and (3) convenience. If you use a small amount of fuel each season (I use about 1 1/2 cans), it's likely not worth the running around to save a few $$. If you were running a lawn service where you used lots of Read More

It's worth it if you have good equipment that you only use once in a while. I have a 'premium' brand 60cc chain saw that I only use maybe once a year (I use my smaller one more often). If I left pump gas in the saw, it would gum up the carb, and the ethanol would eat away the metal, and I would have to repair it. I know this because it has happened to me.

My saw starts up every season on the first pull, and I've never had to do any gas-related repairs. This is also true for all of my 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines that I use TruFuel in.

Answer: 
I use this in my weed eater so one can often last me at least three months. Prior to using this there were often times when the weed eater would not start at all so I had to leave my yard half done. For someone using this in large quantities, it will be expensive. Your equipment will last longer and function better, but you will have to decide if that justifies the expense.

Hi sthilhead
I've used this on many different tools of many different brands. If the Sthil tool requires 50:1 gas/oil mix then this is a great choice. TruFuel is essentially high quality fuel that will make your tools run better and last longer.

It comes in one gallon (actually 110oz) square cans, and some Home Depots carry those, just depends on the area you are in. TruFuel also sells it in 5 gallon cans (4.75 gallon), and 48 gallon drums.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Should have discovered this product years ago I'm a Senior, 10 year widow - with 2 pcs of equipment requiring 50:1 gas/oil mixture. Spent many years buying gas at a station, buying oil at an auto shop & mixing. Although these cans of premix are more expensive, the convenience is worth every cent and available any time of year, in any kind of weather! I wish I would have known about their availability at Home Depot years ago. September 6, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 3/4 of can was water Been using for 2 years and got first bad can. Purchased at Home depot. Filled up weed eater and it ran for about 2 minutes and stopped. Noticed that fuel tank had a layer of fuel on top of a layer of water. Drained tank and cleaned carb. Refilled with marine gas(no ethenol) and oil mixed. The weed eater worked fine. Don't have faith in product now. Called Calumet Packaging (manufacturer of truefuel) and left message but no return call. Also drained the tank on my leaf blower as a precaution. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GasUp Very convenient. Worth the money. I will use this as long as my machine is working. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenience is Awesome So I would say its a little pricey, but worth it for the convenience of not having to go 10 miles out of my way to get Ethanol Free fuel, mix in 2 Stoke oil, measure the proper ratio's, then add a stabilizing additive. By the time you look at all of that? This is worth it to purchase. I will also say that my new Echo Equipment starts and runs perfect every time and has only ever run Trufuel. July 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Product This stuff is amazing. I bought 1 can at home depot to try in my small 2 cycle engines. As for the past 15-20 years of mixing my own gas and oil, this stuff has a shelf life of 5 years (2 after opening). I was amazed to see the difference in my equipment performance (Stihl String Trimmer-Stihl Hedge Trimmers- Stihl blower and a poulan pro chain saw) The fuel does not go bad after a few weeks of sitting in the shed, as per my mixed gas and oil. To me I always bought one gallon of 93 octane gas at the local gas station and mixed one of the little bottles of oil with it. I always had difficulty starting all my 2 cycle engines and keeping them running. With this stuff, I have no problems, and every piece of equipment starts with minimal effort, and stay running. I use these tools for my own yard as for I do not have a business in landscaping. I just wish the price was a little lower. As of now I buy the 6 pack box, and sometime I get them at a discount from home depot. October 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Must-Have For Small 2-Cycle Engines Years ago I used to run my machines dry for the winter. I started using fuel stabilizer and no longer have to do that. All of my machines start right up in the new season even though they've had gas in the tank for months. In the case of my snow blower, one season gas was in the tank >1 year and still no problem. Same is true with my gas trimmer. If I use TrueFuel I don't need to drain its tank, as TF has fuel stabilizer in the formulation. (If you don't drain your trimmer, good idea to store it "horizontally" rather than hanging it on the wall.) True Fuel is a bit pricey but works well, is convenient, has long shelf life. All 2-cycle engines should be running TrueFuel or its equivalent. RECOMMENDED! June 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff rocks! I was always under the assumption that you had to mix the ratio perfectly, which I could never get just right. This stuff is low cost, great on the engine, stable, and great for storage. If I could I would buy as much as I could. July 25, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hit and miss I purchased a Stihl Farmboss chainsaw and used TruFuel. The place I purchased it recommended I use the ethanol free premix. At about $40 per gallon it is a bit pricy but worth it when you spend 700 bucks on a saw and use it as much as I do. Its worth the investment. Most people have good experiences with TruFuel but a can I purchased glazed my carburetor. Took it in to have it rebuilt but they said it was going to need to be replaced and was not covered under warranty. Raised some Heck (Censored by HD) and Stihl replaced it for free but told me to not use TruFuel because they seem to have quality control issues on occasion. January 18, 2014
