Yep! That's the stuff. I used the last of it just recently. I had that can sitting around since '99 and it was still good. I only used it like starter fluid in the lawnmower and rototiller though. I didn't think the octane of the stuff was so low, but then again, it didn't taste like Sunoco 260 either!
An electric chainsaw that will surprise you is the Makita UC4030A 16" 14.5 Amp electric chainsaw.I read about them online and bought one.
Just a note= DO NOT USE 100LL Aviation fuel in a car with a catalytic converter. 100 LL ( Low Lead) has four times the lead of the old Sunoco 240, or was it 260? None the less. Four times as much lead as leaded fuel for the 1960's muscle cars. Another interesting note, if you blend a high octane fuel with a different octane, you will get an even higher octane then either. I do not know the exact percentages. Just a heads up. We run 100LL in some of the blimps. after one flight, you can scrape the lead off of the propellers.
Why did you not go for the 15 AMP?
The mfrs plate says 14.5 Amps. I think that may be advertised as a 15 A unit. That's what I remember ordering. I got mine from a site called manufacturers outlet, located in CA.Sure enough, right through a couple of 2' diameter trees. I'm not going to push my luck, after all, it is an electric. The oiler seems to work well and the chain is advertised at 60mph. As soon as you pick it up and hit the start you feel a certain quality. Having seen a lot of makitas on jobs, I felt confident. All we can get here is ethanol 10-15. We are putting Lucas additives in the cars and dry gas. Denver is tight with Topeka. We send them our water and they send back ethanol.
Fascinating Eyes, I did not know they still used lead.I'll be hunting for this fuel for all my equipment and quad including boat, since none of them have cats.
Remembering this thread, I saw some pre-mixed 50:1 2 cycle fuel that advertised as being stable, lasting years, and no ethanol so I picked it up.Really expensive compared to mixing your own - $9 for a quart - but that'll last me more than a year with the amount I use.
Thirty six bucks a gallon? Granted, in an emergency, it would be worth twice that amount.
I know, right? I figured it this way... I buy that, it'll probably last me a year. Total cost: $9I mix up my own, it goes to shit in 6 months and fucks up my chainsaw again. Total cost: $60 repair
