What's The Best Octane For Hand Held Equipment? What About Ethanol?

By Brian Fullerton from Brian's Lawn Maintenance

A lot of people recently asked me a great question about 2 stroke mix, and 2 stroke fuel. Specifically, "What is the best octane or fuel mixture for our handheld equipment?"

I know a lot of new folks are getting into the industry today, and there is also a lot of confusion about what fuel we should all be using. Now I am not an engineer by any means, but I know someone who could provide some technical answers.

Jason Wilk is with ECHO, and he is one of their main guys as a product manager. Him and I spent a lot of time talking over the last 18 months, discussing little technical questions about topics just like this.

I wanted to get Jason on the phone and get a solid, concise, and easy-to-understand answer, about what's the best suggested fuel for us to be using on our 2 stroke equipment.

Hope you guys enjoyed Jason and I’s discussion on the difference between 87, 89, 93, and even a few tips about Ethanol and what to look out for!
