Agreed poor quality, how long would you say fuel can lay dormant before it's not usable

I have had personal experience of fuel not working in a small generator. That fuel was only 3 weeks out of the pump!!!!

I did not believe it so tried everything first, then changed the fuel and started first pull!!!.

If you look on most manufactures websites under fuel storage they recommend that fuel older than 30 days is NOT used.

Adding stabilisers will help.

We feel it is better not to add more chemicals to a mix that is unstable already.

Pump fuel has around 130 ingredients

Our fuel has 10

That is why it is more stable and will be usable for far longer and burns cleaner.

Keep it simple and it works!

Kind regards

Eddie

At 3 1/2 times the price of unleaded at my local forecourt, I'd struggle to find a reason to buy even a litre of this fuel!

Hi Dirk,

We are offering people a choice.

If you want to guarantee that your engine will start after being stored for months or years you can use our fuel.

If you don't want plastic or rubber components to fail you can use our fuel.

If you run an engine in a confined space (workshop) or you are close to the exhaust the use of our fuel will make this safer.

The use of Aspen in a normal lawnmower for the average garden will cost 20p extra per mow. The engine will start and run better and with the lower evaporation of our fuel you will buy less litres of fuel per year to do the same work.

Please see our website for more information.

Kind regards

Eddie

Eddie with respect you are on a rib forum not a gardening forum. Some guys use hundreds of litres a day. Are you also saying that running an engine in closed space with your fuel is safe. Ie no carbon monoxide

I looked into it briefly after seeing it here. Doesn't appear to exist as named here in the USA. Sounds like its the synthetic oil equivalent of gasoline.

Home Depot and other big stores apparently sell alcohol free gasoline for power equipment, not sure if that's similar.

Hi I was using an example of an occasional use engine and suggesting Aspen for storage use in a larger engine.

Ideal for a small outboard used once a month or less.
Ideal for a back up engine?


Aspen is safer than pump fuel because it is 99% cleaner and has reduced:

Carbon Monoxide.
Nitrogen oxide
Benzene
Hydrocarbons

Aspen is only classed as Harmful, pump fuel as you know is TOXIC.

Kind regards

Eddie

Aspen has a storage life of 3-5 years in a machine or 10 years plus in a metal container.

No Ethanol

Cleaner running

Cleaner emissions

Easier starting

Extended engine oil life

Aspen is an Alkylate petrol made from gases released when crude oil is refined.

Kind regards

Eddie

Hi all,

Please see our website and read about Mercury Marine supporting Aspen. I know Aspen may not be for everyone but I feel it has a place as storage fuel.

Kind regards
