    I run Aviation fuel in mine. It has no alcohol and really good fuel preservatives in it. I just pour the rest in the boat when it gets a little older. I have one of those great big DR mowers I pull behind the quad and it sits a lot. AV gas takes forever to go bad. Shutting off the fuel and running them run out and die is a great idea, same thing for my Honda generator.

    What you will find or at least when I fuel my boat,there is a very, very small amount left in the can so I tip the can a bit when removing the nozzle and that gets it empty. The push button valve makes it neat and clean!

    Interesting. How much do you purchase at a time? What sort of container do you use?

    The NO-SPILL the push button release for pouring is the best hands down
