Why That's Important To You
50Fuel and 40Fuel Never Contain Ethanol
Ethanol is great in automobiles... not so good for 2-cycle engines like leaf blowers, weed eaters and chainsaws.
What most people don’t know is that over 50% of the gasoline sold in the US contains ethanol, and that problems can arise when gasoline with ethanol is left unused for extended periods of time.
Why? The ethanol in the gasoline attracts water from the atmosphere and the two bond together. This water/ethanol mixture separates from the gasoline – a process called "phase separation". When you start your 2-cycle engine it uses the ethanol/water that has separated from the gasoline and does not receive the lubrication that it needs. This can cause immediate engine failure.
Ethanol is also a powerful solvent and when separation occurs, it often degrades rubber fuel lines and plastic components causing unnecessary maintenance problems and reducing the lifespan of your equipment.
The gasoline that goes into 50Fuel is specially engineered for 2-cycle engines like weed eaters, leaf blowers and chainsaws and never contains ethanol.
