I hear that E-85 can work. But i'm not sure...
It is actually possible. This one guy on YT ran a Homelite Chainsaw on E-85.
Saw the Video, appeared to work ok.
I may consider using a 50/50 mix of E-85 and Gasoline next year.
Can you guys tell me if it will work, and with the normal 50-1 Oil/Gas Ratio as well?
I use Amsoil Dominator Synthetic 2-Cycle Racing Oil- and i mix it with Sunoco 91, fyi.
Works fine in my 2-Cycle Engines, my STIHL Weedwacker and Poulan Chainsaw.
I put a bit of the Oil in a Echo Bottle every year and Ethanol Damage Prevention Fuel Stabilizer.
STIHLs and Echos require 91.
It says use 89 or higher on the 2-Cycle Oil Bottles.
In my Poulan Chainsaw, the 91/50-1 mix works almost as well as 87 or 89 and 40-1 mix (which is what i should use in it)
I use 89 in my Car (2008 Honda Accord- my dad sold it to me for 150usd because he wanted a new car)
Is it ok to use 89 in it? It requires 87 Regular, but i like how 89 sounds- the word.
And using a higher octane keeps the Engine a bit Cleaner from what i gather.
Some of these other ones will work as well as the one i use, but you'll need to possibly double the Ratio for the Saber Pro 100-1 2-Cycle Oil.
There are Gas Stations near me that sell E-85, according to the Net. Here's an alleged one:
Allentown, PA E85 Gas Station Locations
Allentown Service Plaza, 5052 Centronia Rd., Allentown, PA 18106
Allentown isn't exactly that close. It'll be kind of far from West Chester, which in Pennsylvania, where i live.
I know that there is a West Chester in NY as well.
I may consider calling them as well, perhaps, but next year. I'll ask them if they sell E-85 because i saw it on the Net. I won't say why i want E-85,
cuzz that isn't any of their concern.
Regarding the Video from YT=
If it says "Good", "Very Good" or Excellent then one CAN use any of those, and they'll work perfectly fine in Lawn Equipment and probly Snowblowers
