    This guy's channel is pretty interesting, he does all kinds of experiments with small engines.

    Been running it in my weedeater and chainsaw for a long time. Much better than regular ethanol fuel.

    That was pretty cool seeing an engine fire through plexi type material! Seeing that with a high speed camera would be really cool

    Didn't know that, they all look the same. Still they handle a beating pretty well. Id never let him borrow my mower.

    I mean he ran that current mower on bananas for oil and it's still going! How crazy!

    You haven't been watching long... He's probably gone through 20 mowers. :D:D

    Yeah I was estimating without knowing haha. Been watching a long time but never counted. He beats the hell out of those things.

    But I like his go cart the best. Hahaha.
