Make sure you use 100LL and not "jet-A" . jet-A is kerosene and will burn more then a hole in your piston...
for you guys that fear the AV Gas, you can blend in some regular if you really feel the need to add some corn to your OPE.
It's pretty tough to get Jet-A and 100LL confused at the pump. Even if you did put Jet-A in a saw I doubt it'd hurt anything cuz it wouldn't run.
IIRC alcohol will produce 10 to 15 percent more horsepower than gasoline in a given engine. Yes, it does run cooler, maybe not burn cooler but it has something to do with the evaporation through the intake. Have you ever seen the size of a radiator on a big block chevy that was running alky?
It does weigh a touch less than gasoline but the problem is that properly tuned (gallon wise) you burn nearly twice as much.
Some sanctioning bodies will specify the fuel that you have to run but some of the local (sturday night) tracks are open.
