Not a bad product, but buying it in canned quantities like this is not very cost effective.
You can buy REC90 (ethanol free) gas at a gas station for anywhere from $3.09 to $4.50 gallon depending on location and come out way ahead verses buying it a quart at a time for $4-$5 each, which comes out to $18/gallon Even adding in the cost of an oil and stabilizer, you still come out ahead buying it at the gas station and mixing it yourself, especially if you are going to be using multiple gallons of it.

now saying that, I have a bunch of cans of this stuff (both 2-stroke premix and plain 4-stroke) in my garage. Anytime I get a free cash offer at Sears, I redeem them for cans of this fuel. I picked up another (5) cans just last week using two free cash offers from sears.

Its a good product, but these cans are not the most cost effective way to get it unless you only need 1 can or so a year. I run ethanol free fuel in all my engines, except our cars, and the old tractor. I run ethanol free gas in the weed eater, leaf blower, chain saw, generator, power washer, and my boat, so I use a fair amount every year, way too much for these cans to be an effective source.

You can use the following website to locate a station that sells REC90 close to you.

A little. But more so that it's ethanol free and won't harm common day 2 cycle equipment like the garbage fuel we put in our cars will do. You can technically leave this in your equipment year round and it won't harm anything.

While true mixing it yourself is more cost efficient some places don't have easy access to ethanol free fuel. For me it would be about a 90min round trip to get to get Rec90.

This stuff is more of an ease & convenience

I got in on this yesterday. $3.58 in my area. I price matched at lowes and bought 10. Lowes system triggers another 12% discount when you buy 10 or more so I ended up paying $3.15 a can.

is the appeal to these that they are convenient? 'Cause you are getting absolutely raped based on the cost of gasoline. (32 oz = 1/4 a gal. In my parts that's about 65 cents)

2.5 gallons of REC90 at the gas station would have cost you $10 MAX.
A quart of 2 stroke oil would be $6. You'd still be about half the price of the cans and you'd still have oil left over for future purchases at the gas station.

Best available around me is leaded racing fuel for $9.10 / gal + oil + stabilizer

And the leaded gas exhaust is just nasty to breathe in when using small gas equipment

I buy them because I have 7 or so chainsaws, from 35CC to 120CC, and three sons who borrow chain saws. With a premixed can I have less worry about them straight gassing a saw. Plus the size is convenient to carry and well labeled.
Then I mix my own and refill.
BUT the cans get rusty on the outside, dropped and bent. I've probably gone through 10 gallons of gas & oil run through 3 cans over the last 6 years.

For me in Northern Virginia it's about a 2 hour drive for alcohol free.

Your two cycle tools will run much better on this fuel and no worries about draining it for the winter... It is well worth the extra money you pay...

The former chemist in me told me to get two beakers, a 500 ml one and a 50ml one. I put 10 ml oil in the 50 ml one. In the end, it isn't as easy as it sounds though because the oil sticks to the 50 ml one and simply pouring it into 500ml of gas leaves a lot of oil behind. So I pour a little gas into the 50 ml one and swish it around to try to get most of the residue into the 500 ml beaker before topping off the 500 ml beaker to the mark. There still will be a little oil residue in the 50 ml one, so I'll put ever so slightly more than 10 ml of oil to compensate for the residue. This is fine for me, because I never want to make more than 500 ml at a time. Remember - as long as it's reasonably close to 50:1, nothing is going to break. It's just a question of convenience as to whether you mix yourself, or buy premixed.

Techron, 1 time per year in my 2 stroke engines seems to overcome the damage the 10% ethanol does. My 2 stroke weed wacker is going on 12 years now. I remember lifting my now 22 year old son when he was 10 to the second tier of home depot shelves so he could walk around up there and find it (yes slickdealers, it was on clearance) for me Wink

This one is good for equipment that is not being used constantly or low usage (both fuel and times) like a string trimmer that gets taken out once a month.
Good to fill up equipment over season (winter/summer) I think this is better than using fuel stabilizer. But for constant use of big volume gas guzzlers yes this is NOT a good option or rather cheap I meant to say.
