RE: What did you get today?
Got a yard machine ( LDT ) Simple push mower , takes just over 1/3 tank to do my lawn . Trick ist to get it nailed and only use enough gas to do the job , and always store empty . Small engine carbs have notoriously small fule ports and the ethanol is also slightly corosive especially with pig iron and aluminum . Been looking for ethanol free gass locally , no luck yet .

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .

Would be worth tracking down ethanol free fuel, or at least treating it. All my new small engines are only going to see ethanol free fuel from now on. 
I use trufuel in my weed wacker and chainsaw, for what I use them the cost of $4-5 a quart is fine by me.
I found a place about a half hour away that sells ethanol free 93 octane (maybe higher, cant remember) for $4 something a gallon. Need to get that for my snow blower. this spring I just let my snow blower run out of fuel, and put a cup or so of trufuel in it and let it run a couple mins to get it in.

This crap ethanol fuel is hell on small engines
I see the true fule at homedepot this mornig and was curious as to how well it runs . I buy kleen fule ( 1K ) for my kerosene heater $45 for 5gall , but i have had 0 issues with the heater since .

It runs awesome. If you got a small lawn and buy bulk it may be worth getting trufuel. Up here we are pretty limited for ethanol free fuel. Most small air ports we can get avgas, but there is a heat fuel supplier that just got a gas pump of ethanol free gas. I think my brother in law said it was $4 something a gallon.

I wish they would stop this ethanol crap. Cost keeps going up and the purity goes down...

Same here, except I paid £1.229 (Around US$1.58) per litre for gas yesterday. One US gallon is 3.79 litres, so that's $5.99 per gallon. With around 10% ethanol.

Goblin was $2.99 and the Quasar was $1.99... Know I mentioned that already somewhere, and probably sound like a shill... But I am pretty excited about those prices lol

RE: What did you get today?
I also got my box of flavors from Heartland. I ended up getting 4oz of pomegranate, can't wait to get creative or trash it. Thinking of mixing it with orange to start.
