Nope! the only time I leave gas in my saw is when I'm going to use it the next day, otherwise I always run'em dry! now that the USA is becoming energy independent on imported oil again I wonder how long before they quit mixing it(corn) in at the Pump! ha! like that will ever happen! Stihl Claims thier saws will run OK on 10% Corn, but 15% is to be avoided. As to your comment about the good old days/saws..wasn't that before they put anti-kick back bars on them? never had a serious enough kick back to engage the anti kick back bar but saw one on an A&E Home Improvement Show last week. The user admitted he had never used a chain saw before, was using a 16 or 18 inch rental saw to cut some tree roots growing through a chain link fence on a sloped back yard. The saw was held at a level with his head. he must have caught the chain link fence and had no time to react as it kicked back, the chain skimmed the top of his shoulder and when he removed his sweat shirt his skin was cut on top of his shoulder. Don't know if getting tangled in the clothing stalled the saw or the anti-kick back saved him but it was scary to watch, should have sliced his neck open! otherwise he had all the safety gear on, face mask, ear muffs, gloves leg chaps....just forgot to put his brain in gear..once the government see's the video we'll be mandated to also wear metal mesh throat collars!...wouldn't be surprised if Red Green doesn't already sell them there collars, if you don't know who Red Green is look him up on You Tube..he's every Handi Man's hero...he can fix anything with duct tape..I'm still PO'd that his TV show went off the of the greatest men/shows to come outta Canada! all be save with ur saws!
