Agreed I try not to fill any of my low use power equipment with summer gas. It is formulated differently in my area and turns to garbage in weeks. Most of the higher quality 2-stroke oils now have a stabilizer in them. I did find a gas station that had a special pump with 100% gasoline for boats and power equipment. Might fill up my cans there next time I go by.
