Fuel Fact Tips

Toro offers the following preventive maintenance tips to minimize fuel system issues with outdoor power equipment…

Fuel deteriorates over time. Deterioration begins with the most volatile compounds evaporating. Once evaporation reaches a certain point it will be hard/impossible to start the machine. As more compounds evaporate, the fuel will form brown gummy deposits in the system. Given enough time the gummy deposits will become a hard varnish. Gummy deposits and varnish can plug passages in the carburetor preventing the engine from running or causing the engine to run poorly (surging, lack of power, stalls, etc.). Deposits can also cause the carburetor to leak fuel if they prevent the float needle from sealing properly.
Most fuel stabilizers form a layer over the top of the gasoline and greatly reduce the rate the fuel’s volatile compounds evaporate. They also prevent the absorption of moisture by the fuel. If fuel stabilizer is added to gasoline the day the gasoline is purchased, the fuel will stay fresh longer. Toro offers a Premium Fuel Treatment to help ensure reliable engine performance and protection against ethanol’s harmful effects. The product is available from authorized Toro dealers or can be ordered from www.torodealer.com.
 
Unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of at least 87 ((R+M)/2 rating method) is the recommended fuel grade for all gasoline engines in Toro products. Gasoline with up to 10% ethanol (gasohol) or 15% MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether) by volume is acceptable. Ethanol and MTBE are not the same. Gasoline with 15% ethanol (E15) by volume is not approved for use. Never use gasoline that contains more than 10% ethanol by volume, such as E15 (contains 15% ethanol), E20 (contains 20% ethanol), or E85 (contains up to 85% ethanol ). Using unapproved gasoline may cause performance problems and/or engine damage which may not be covered under warranty. Keep in mind that ethanol fuel blends will absorb water from the atmosphere and can cause corrosion of fuel system components. Since most carburetors and the gas tank are vented to the atmosphere in some manner there is nothing to prevent fuel from absorbing moisture over time. Using fresh fuel (less than 30 days old) will help prevent water absorption from becoming a problem.

Knowledgeable Employees

Toro dealers hire employees that know and use power equipment. They can answer your questions and make sure that you are buying the product that fits your needs; not more than you need and not less. Plus they are there and ready to help, you won’t have to wander the aisles looking for them. They are the experts that you can trust.

Personal Service

At the counter or on the phone (and by the way, someone will answer the phone, not a computer), you’re more than a customer – you’re a neighbor. Someone is there to help you, you won’t have to hunt them down. Your business matters to them and they will work hard to earn it.

Unbeatable Selection

Toro dealers stock the largest selection of models, models that you won’t find anywhere else so you can get the product that best fits your needs. And, Toro dealers prices are competitive with anything you will find at a national retailer.

Support After the Sale

Just like your car, power equipment will eventually need service to keep it running and performing at peak levels. Power equipment that is well cared for will give you years of reliable use. Toro dealers employ trained service technicians and stock Toro parts. Whether you need warranty work or just a new blade, Toro dealers are your best and most reliable resource.

Buying Local
