  1. Solid, reliable A+++

    Posted by Bob V. on 17th Aug 2011

    Great product....even if it does cost a bit more than the competition...You get what you pay for here. One caution: ALWAYS use fresh gasoline from a clean container. ALWAYS use a fuel stabilizer if engine will not be in use for even a few weeks.
