Premixed 2-stroke for all AIR COOLED 2-stroke engines.
It will not "go off" for 3-5 years.
Look up Aspen fuel for more detailed information.
I have spent over 20years working on garden machinery, motorbikes and some outboards and I have had fuel "go off" in my Royal Enfield & Lawnmower.
An engine won't start until you change the fuel.
It gums up the carb.
Fuel is clear when you buy it and as it breaks down it become more and more yellow and will leave a layer of varnish inside your fuel system.
The fuel companies are the one's keeping the quiet and it's the mechanics and engine manufactures who are having the problems.
Oh right. I will look it up.
Never heard of you before.
Had lots of hassle with bio diesel here as its rubbish.
I wouldn't personally buy the ready mixed version only because I will only put quicksilver oil in my outboards.
I have seen many have problems because they have used inferior 2 stroke oils.
(Not saying the Aspen one would be at all. I'm sure it's great) but I prefer to be sure.
I agree fuel does go 'off' and will 'gum' the carbs up.
I'm just disputing the time it takes for it to.
It will last a year easy in my opinion.
And for me taking the carbs off and cleaning them out doesn't take long or much effort, if it needed doing. I would do it myself.
Much cheaper than wasting fuel!!
My guys who are mechanics and build engines etc don't seem to think it's a major issue at all either.
