Another Ethanol Problem
I recently posted about Renner Petroleum selling "Pure gasonline", the reason having to do with problems ethanol causes with engines. Just found out about another ethanol related problem.
Stihl just announced a recall on some of their equipment because of a gas cap problem. I received my notice in the mail today. It seems that ethanol, among other things, affects the components of the cap making it difficult to install or remove.
SO THAT'S WHAT IT IS?
My heavy duty Stihl string trimmer was fine for a few years but a few months ago it became a major hassle trying to open the fuel cap, and especially difficult to close it. I was thinking I'd have to take it in and buy a new cap but now, with the recall, they'll replace it free. Cool! Problem solved.
Makes me wonder how many more ethanol related problems will come to light?
