For all of my 2-cycle engines (weedwacker, blower-shredder, chainsaw),
I've used something called "one-mix" for all of them even though each of
them requires a different ratio. I've been doing this for about 8-10 years,
and they all seem to be working just fine. And, the best part, I only have
one gas-can to fill and worry about. I get one-mix at my local lawnmower
Has anyone ever heard anything bad about this stuff?
