Tenn for a funeral, and I found a couple of stations selling straight gas (about the same price as other regular gas containing the ethonal). I went to Wally World and purchased a gas can and smuggled 5 gal. back to Birmingham for use in my 2-cycle engines. I try to keep 15 or 20 gal of gas on hand for my generator and outdoor equipment, but even with a fuel stabilizer I fear keeping it for more than six months. I periodically dump all my gas into my car and truck and purchase fresh. Since it was time for the container of ethanol free gas to go, I did not have any fresh fuel that I wanted to use in my 2 cycle engines. I broke down and bought a quart of the pre-mixed fuel sold at the small engine store in order to winterize the 2 cycles. I emptied the various gas tanks and poured a splash in each one. I cranked each engine up and ran it dry with the expensive fuel. Hopefully this will keep deposits from clogging the carburetors.

In fact, I filled the tank in the spring and it lasted all summer( don't use it a lot), and did not have any problems with it. .
