4 of those quarts is a gallon. about $16.
You can get a gallon of gas and oil for about 5 bucks

What am I missing?

It won't gum up your weedeater like regular gas will do overtime.

That your children can split those four cans however they see fit when they're dividing up your estate and they will still run the space-trimmer like a scalded dog.

trufuel is better for the weekend warrior. Especially when long lapses between mowing/weeedeating etc.

Different for the lawn care guy who’s mowing 6 days a week and regularly burning through fuel

And you can store it for a long time without it going bad.

Maybe I've been lucky with my small engines, but as long as I NEVER use ethanol, I have not found a need for Trufuel.

I use the 40:1 for my weed eater and chainsaw. Is there any advantages to 50:1 over the 40:1?

If engine specifies 40:1 you don't want to drop down to 50:1. That ratio is just how much oil is mixed, 50:1 contains less oil and may not lubricate well enough.

I've had the same blower,weed eater and chainsaw for the last ten years and haven't had any trouble using just ethanol free gas and a quality oil mix. I've replaced the spark plugs in them a few times and a primer bulb or two and that's it.

It's great stuff to put in your chainsaw that you only run once a year. It's for guys that burn a gallon or less a year. I use it in my chainsaws but that's it.

You can and plenty do run 40:1 in 50:1 equipment to give it a little extra lubrication, just a little extra oil to burn off. Only downside is potentially fouling plugs a little faster. You just can't go the opposite way and run LESS oil than specified or it's gonna score up the cylinders.

Look up the properties of Avgas and Truefuel. They're both Alkylate petrol except Avgas uses tetraethyllead (TEL), a toxic substance used to prevent engine knocking (detonation).

1. Find the Oil I bought a year ago and threw in a random cabinet, once I can't find it go buy more oil
2. Dump out the year old half gallon of gas somewhere, find a gas station that actually sells Ethanol free gas, google ratio, forget ratio, find something to measure it out in, google ratio again
3. ???
4. repeat in a few months once the gas goes bad, then buy a carb kit and fuel lines when I forget to drain my shite and it won't crank




Fixed it

In all seriousness I still use ethanol free and mix for my boat motor, but I'll burn that before it goes bad. For having a can sitting on the shelf of the garage to top of my weedeater whenever I need it you can't beat this stuff.

Every time I hear about some overpriced gimmick like this that someone is getting rich on I want to kick myself in the butt for not thinking of it first.

It’s not really a gimmick. You would be surprised at the amount of people who can’t mixed their fuel right. Just this weekend they had two guys at lowe’s Trying to return brand new weed eaters that had locked up.
