Repeated carburetor problems on string trimmer and blower. They start but don't run with power, or don't start at all.
Each failure requires a costly carb replacement. I always used Stihl oil, and last year started using the ethanol free 50:1 pre-mix. It doesn't matter. The carbs still stop working.
Stihl has all kinds of warnings about gas, including that you should only mix three day's worth!, so they can claim it is the consumer's fault if their recommendations are not followed. But my inexpensive Poulan chainsaw just does not have the same kind of issues. I paid much more for Stihl. What a mistake.
Maybe Stihl should build a product that works with the gasoline consumers can actually buy. Other manufacturers do.
