yeah Bill, i just got the recon out for a pre-season tune.....even with draining the gas, running the gas out and adding additives you can expect the unexpected with ethanol and carbs... they dont mix  :o
so im testing to find out if i have to pitch the carb and get another, like a couple  times in the last 13years ::)

I know it's more expensive, but I always run Ethanol free gas in all my carbonated motors, which are only my push mower and riding mower, but it does keep them running great year to year without rebuilding to replacing the carburetors!  I ran ethanol free in our boat also and never had problems...

I didnít think about location, here on the coast of the Redneck Riviera I have 2 stations that are close to the house. One only sell it in premium the other has mid-grade. I usually only use the mid-grade and thatís over kill for a lawn mower. However, having said that, I can knock out my acre in under 40 minutes with my Toro zero-turn, and that includes the trim mowing with the push mower and weed earring around everything!  That sucker flys on the open, flat areas!

thats why i own mostly diesel powered equipment and vehicles.
only gas stuff we have is the 4wheeler and an outboard or 2.
everthing else is electric or diesel  ;)

Well, my Hawke mid-rise dovetail mounts came in the mail yesterday, so I swapped the Centerpoint 3-9x32 mildot scope off the GuideHawk NP onto the model 70. (both Crosman's) The Sonicking 3-9x40AO I won from Joe Rhea's Youtube show is due to arrive tomorrow.  That one will go on the GuideHawk NP. I think the model 70 looks a lot better with a lower parallax?! And the bottom of the objective bell clears the top of the rear sight wings, so clear view and parallax lowered 5/16".


And the Sonicking 3-9x40AO;



I have not been a peace officer for over 25 years, but for some reason when I looked at those scope rings, I wondered, "What is he going to do with an airgun and handcuffs?" I know, I ain't right  :o

Now probably wasn't the right time for me as well, but my less-frugal little devil on my shoulder got the best of me.

yes i'm aware of that paul, but around here its hard to find real "boat gas" 
(ethanol free) without paying 2x the price and of course.....they say "ethanol free"
but is it really ?? its been discovered quite frequent in these parts....that not everyone tells the truth in this (tourist trap) area much less anything to do with "boats" :o

Get some sea foam, I use it in everything including diesel vehicles. Never had to rebuild carbs on any of my lawn and play toys.
