Scored a Stihl MS 211 16 inch chainsaw at a pawn shop when the dumbass employee flooded it while trying to start it up for me and I told him I wouldn't buy it unless I could see it run. He told me a non running chainsaw was no good to him and asked me what I'd give him for it as-is. I said $50 bucks and he said ok. Took it home, cleaned the plug off and it cranked right up and runs perfect lol. SCORE!!!!!!!

You can buy ethanol free fuel at Home Depot and Walmart itís expensive but if youíre using for residential use I highly recommend. If you have a big property and go through a LOT of gas maybe just 93 and a good 2 cycle oil with fuel stabilizer in it.. donít buy more pump gas than youíll use in a month for 2 stroke stuff because performance and reliability will decline pretty fast after.. you can go a little longer with mowers but maybe only by another 30 days or so

I love Stihl products! I have a stihl leaf blower and itís been absolutely amazing.. Iíve had it 4 years and only had to change the plug and air filters..

I love my echo trimmer too.. same maintenance plus a set of fuel lines and a new carb.. the echo is lighter than the commercial stihl trimmers but you sacrifice a little torque.. you canít go wrong with either though imo

Both will need proper maintenance to stay reliable though..

I live in Quinlan on Lake Tawakoni and there is one station that sells non-ethanol about 5 miles away. There is also one just off 30 in Greensville. Don't know about dfw.

Edit: you can go to pure-gas.org for a local map of stations.

Baron, you're right. My buddy who lives on cedar creek gets his at a marina. The two i Iisted are small independent owner ones. Gas is not branded. Pricewise last time I was there was about 14 cents a gallon more than corn crap.
