I was absolutely amazed when the motor home that had set in the barn for 5 years with about 30 gallons of regular gas gas in it started right up and ran fine. '89 w/454 with electronic Q jet carb. Then you have customers have equipment set for 6 months and the carb is trashed. My FS80 string trimmer is 23 years old and always run on regular gas and only thing wrong with carb so far is a split primer bulb. My LawnBoy with an F engine is 30 years old and never had the carb off it. If you don't leave fuel in equipment for an extended time it works fine.
