What is the best gas to use in my lawn and garden equipment?


Fuel for your lawn mower or outdoor power equipment must meet these requirements:

  • Clean, fresh, unleaded
  • A minimum of 87 octane/87 AKI (91 RON)
  • Non-ethanol gasoline is ideal. 
  • Premium gas is not the same as non-ethanol gas, as premium gas can still have ethanol added to it.

What is the best way to store my gas-powered lawn and garden equipment over the winter?


Winter storage can do a number on any small engine. While there’s no fool-proof way to guarantee your gasoline-powered equipment will start in the spring, we have a few suggestions that will help:

  • Store your equipment out of the weather in a shed or garage so it is less likely to accumulate water in the fuel system.
  • We recommend you have fresh, non-ethanol fuel (clear gas) in your equipment. A fuel stabilizer is not necessary. However, if you like using a fuel stabilizer, make sure you follow the directions on the stabilizer package.
  • Start your equipment at least once a month in order to cycle fuel through the carburetor.
