In an attempt to improve health of gasoline engines,
Briggs & Stratton Corporation
) has introduced ethanol-free fuel. With the help of this
advanced formula comprising synthetic oil and stabilizer, 2 and 4
cycle engines will run smoother.
The gasoline used on a regular basis containing more than 10%
ethanol fuel such as E15 or E85, is harmful for engines. This
ethanol-blended fuel attracts moisture affecting power and
mileage of engines which causes severe damages. It also increases
fuel consumption resulting in frequent maintenance and repair.
This will inflate repair costs as well as decrease in the
performance of engines.
Briggs & Stratton's ethanol-free fuel is the newest
development in fuel treatment. This fuel will not only help in
maintaining health of engines, but also save consumers' time and
money. Further, it will also help in maximizing storage life of
fuel in small engine applications.
Premium, engineered fuel ingredients including synthetic oil and
stabilizer will work together to reduce carburetor corrosion and
gum and varnish build-up, which will ultimately reduce cost of
repairing small engines.
The engineered fuel is a ready-to-use solution having three
different blended fuel ratios to meet specific needs of
consumers. A combination of ethanol-free fuel, synthetic oil and
stabilizer, in a 40:1 and 50:1 ratio, can be used for 2-cycle
engines such as chainsaws, leaf blowers and string trimmers.
However, 4-Cycle Fuel, which is a mixture of ethanol free fuel
and stabilizer, will be used for outdoor power equipment such as
lawn mowers and pressure washers.
Ethanol-free fuel that does not require any additional mixing can
be used with any gasoline engine is available at the stores of
Lowe's Companies Inc.
). These fuel blends stay fresh for up to two years after
