I'm not going to get into ethanol is good or bad discussion, just say I buy Kwik-Trip 91 octane RECREATIONAL 100% gasoline because it's formulated to stay good for a long time, all winter in fact.
I do want to relate some information about oil mixed with ANY kind of gasoline. I read an article in CYCLE MAGAZINE back around 1970, maybe '72 by GORDON JENNINGS, he was Cycle's feature technical editor back then. He built and tuned racing 2-stroke engines for all the factory race teams and most of the greatest motorcycle racers ever back then. He researched all his articles well, He claimed that the oil added to gasoline for 2-stroke engines lost about 25% of it's lubricity in a week. He recommended NOT using pre-mix that was over a month old. And 2 year old premix, I bet it would not even burn if you threw a lit match in a puddle of it. Running that thru your saws was about like running straight gasoline. Dad had an open 5 gallon can of gasahol years ago, We were running it in the '51 M. But I tried to set some old boards and stuff on fire with it. I could NOT get it to burn with my Bic lighter. I splashed a bit of MY good gas, 91 octane recreational gas on the old stale gasahol, flicked my Bic and we had a bon fire.
