FILLING FUEL TANK
WARNING: AVOID INJURY. Read
and understand the entire Safety
section before proceeding.
A minimum of 87 octane/87 AKI (91
RON). High altitude use may require a
different octane. Consult your engine
manual.
• Gasoline with up to 10% ethanol
(gasohol) or up to 10% MTBE (methyl
tertiary butyl ether) is acceptable.
• Use of any gasoline other than those
approved above will void the engine
warranty. If the pumps are not marked
for the content of alcohol or ethers,
check ethanol and MTBE levels with
the fuel supplier.
• Do not modify the fuel system to use
different fuels.
• Never mix oil and gasoline.
NOTE: All gasoline is not the same. If the
engine experiences starting or performance
problems after using a new gasoline, switch
to a different fuel provider or fuel brand.
IMPORTANT: Excessively oxygenated or
reformulated fuels (fuels blended with
alcohols or ethers) can damage the fuel
system or cause performance problems. If
any undesirable operating problems occur,
use a gasoline with a lower percentage of
alcohol or ether.
Gasoline left in the fuel system for extended
periods without a stabilizer will deteriorate,
resulting in gum deposits in the system.
These deposits can damage the carburetor
and the fuel hoses, filter and tank. Prevent
deposits from forming in the fuel system
during storage by adding a quality fuel
stabilizer to the fuel. Follow the
recommended mix ratio found on the fuel
stabilizer container.
To add fuel to fuel tank:
1. ALWAYS place unit in open or wellventilated area.
2. Stop engine and allow to cool.

resulting in gum deposits in the system.
These deposits can damage the carburetor
and the fuel hoses, filter and tank. Prevent
deposits from forming in the fuel system
during storage by adding a quality fuel
stabilizer to the fuel. Follow the
recommended mix ratio found on the fuel
stabilizer container.
To treat the fuel system for storage:
1. Add fuel stabilizer according to
manufacturers’s instructions.
2. Run engine for at least 10 minutes after
adding stabilizer to allow it to reach the
carburetor.
NEVER store the engine with fuel in the fuel
tank inside of a building with potential
sources of ignition.
