PRODUCT TESTIMONIAL
Hi Chief, I did not ever write an article on the “Tool Fuel” just e-mail correspondence to Larry Polas. What I can tell you is that virtually all of our small engine problems have went away with the switch over to this fuel.
I’ve had a mechanical back ground since a young age and was searching for an alternative fuel for our small engines. We were changing out the fuels in the equipment and spare cans all the time, rebuilding carbs, etc…..it was a never ending process.
Sources have told me that todays pump fuel starts to deteriorate in about 30 days. The small engines with standard pump fuel were hard to start, lacked power and plain didn’t run right.
Since switching to this other blend of fuel these small engines have “come back to life”…….equipment starts in one or two pulls of the recoil start cord and has the power that the motor should have and the fuel has an endless shelf life. The fuel is more expensive but in the long run it’s worth every penny (in my opinion) if man hours are not tied up babysitting the small equipment, rebuilding & cleaning carbs’ etc.
The only issue that I have found is that the small equipment with vented fuel caps (basically the 4 cycle motors) have a tendency to have the fuel evaporate from the fuel tank ……but with daily / weekly “check-outs” this really isn’t an issue. The 2-cycle saws with mixed fuel and non-vented (closed type) fuel systems do not have this issue.
We store our spare fuel in safety type cans so evaporation is not an issue. I have recently noticed another alternative fuel on the market called “SEF” (Small Engine Fuel) which is sold locally in small engine shops in our area. I have not tried this fuel yet but in reading up on the product on their web-sight it appears to be the same concept and you can purchase this in a pre-mix for the 2-cycles that need that 50:1 oil / fuel ratio.
Anyway, I hope this info helps answer some of your questions.
Respectfully,
Frank Slazes,
