Ethanol Fuel Cleaning for Small Engines
Gasoline with ethanol added starts to go bad in as little as 30 days, but fuel additives can help. Up to 80 percent of engine repairs start with bad gasoline. Most forms of gasoline sold at gas stations contain up to 10 percent ethanol, which contains a higher amount of oxygen that naturally decays gasoline. To limit the effects of ethanol, use fuel cleaning products to keep your outdoor power equipment running smoothly. This guide will help you learn the best way to clean and maintain your outdoor power equipment that runes on gasoline with ethanol.
Tip: E-85 and E-15 fuels are gaining in popularity and availability for modern automobile engines. However, these new fuels can be harmful for outdoor power equipment. The EPA has not approved these new fuels for use in small engines, so it is best not to use these fuels with your outdoor power equipment.
