$26 per gallon for convenience -- ouch, ouch and ouch. Perhaps if you only use a quart every two weeks but for most of us it is a much better option to find an ethanol free gas station/marina. $5.50 for 5 gallons worth of the 2 cycle premix, $1 for 5 gallons of sta-bil and 3.49per gallon for ethanol free gas ($1/more than ethanol based). $4.79 versus $26 per gallon is a huge difference in cost for the same exact thing. I mix 5-10 gallons at once and stabilize for up to a year. Guess the economy is stronger than I thought.
Reports of issues with gas from the pumps in our area has us buying pre-mixed fuel for our yard machines. This is cheaper than most auto stores and has been working great. Local store can't keep the stuff in stock!
Just purchased this today. As little as I use my weedwacker, this will probably last me an entire season. If so, and there is some left over, I have no fear of keeping it til next season. With fuel that I have mixed in the past, first there is storage to be concerned with, and then, the usefulness of the product next year, and finally , the fact that there is no ethanol to begin with.
