Bad mix

No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought a new chainsaw and ran about a can and a half in it before it started running poorly. No power, getting hot. I took the saw back to Home Depot and the tool rental counter drained the gas for me so I could complete my return. The technician at the rental counter brought the saw and the drained gas to me and told me I was mixing my gas wrong. Not enough oil in it. When I told him I was using this product he wasn't surprised and recommend mixing my own in the future. I will never use this product again. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but something that was so bad should never gotten by any sort of quality control. It killed a brand new chain saw by not giving it adequate lube and the convenience isn't worth it. Use an ethanol treatment in regular pump gas and add your own oil.

my wife and I always have problems mixing fuel for our 40-1 and 50-1 gas\oil mixtures, plus why have 3 separate gas cans in garage. This product is great. No more problems plus no ethanol. A product that's perfect for our trimmers/chainsaw

I used to have 2 stroke engine starting problems due to ethanol fuel. I switched to using Trufuel and haven't had a problem since. They start better and run better with this mix. My neighbor switched and he agrees.
Pros: All In One, Easy to Use

I was about to throw away my 8-yer old weed eater. It would start, but then stall out after a few seconds. I did some research and realized I was mixing ethanol gas with my oil mix. Big no...no.. for lawn power equipment. Thank you US govt. Anyway, I started using this Trufuel product and now my Homelite weed eater is back eating grass. Saved me at least $150 from buying a new weed eater.
Pros: Easy to Use

I may be paying more than a gallon of gas plus mixing my own oil into it (haven't done the math because I don't want to know) - this is just fast and easy - gas and go
Pros: Easy to Store, Long-Lasting
