    Question:

    Are you Midwest and Plains states wood burners intentionally using E85 in your saws?

    Just asking. Thanks.

    Husqvarna recomends 89 octane in their equiptment. I run 91 from Stewarts (the only place in our area WITHOUT ethanol) and noticed a difference in my saw, boat and even my riding mower.

    No - I save the E85 for my car and truck. E10 is as far as I go with the saw. I don't think E85 and current 2-stroke engine oils are a good match. There is a company that claims to have released an ethanol compatible 2-stroke oil: http://www.getg.com/articles/article_detail.php?ArticleID=55

    But I'm waiting to hear some feedback.
