    Good point, I forget that more and more things are getting cats now. Plus, 118 octane most of the stuff he listed will be way down on power from the slower burn rate, likely acting rich.

    Is the lead OK for chainsaws, snow blowers, lawn mowers, etc?
    How much is it? Might find 100LL at an airport cheaper.

    MOGAS (Hampton Airport and others) is not leaded.

    In upstate NY and No Ethanol Premium is $4 at the Stewart’s.

    Haffner's in Haverhill on 125 basically Plaistow has it. I don't know anymore info but that's a closer run to visit for you.

    I've started to buy premixed gas for my saw, mostly so that I don't have to think about pouring contaminated gas in from a can that gets reused, ya it's eeeekspensive, but I'm not going thru so much as I get older, it doesn't seem to get stale like pump gas, Husqvarna brand is $23 for a 110oz can, so that puts it at about $25/gal, generic is $20/gal.

    cold starts are the same, a couple pumps on the primer, and choke, however restarts with the 94octane premix are a pia as it takes 3 hands to do it, (or 1 foot & 2 hands) throttle has to be held wide open on restarts with the premix gas, whereas pump gas, is just one pump on the primer, then pull, and it's idling.

    otherwise, the premix performs much better, sounds like it gets a few more rpm, and certainly keeps em up when the bar hits the wood
