Use VP Fix-It-Fuel if your lawnmower won't start (or any other piece of outdoor power equipment). Fix-It-Fuel is a single-use treatment for poor or non-running small engines damaged by ethanol-blended street gas. It cleans and rejuvenates the fuel system. As a result, your equipment will start more quickly and operate in top condition. Fix-It-Fuel is an 89-octane gas. It’s ETHANOL-FREE and pre-mixed with oil. Although it’s a 50:1 mix, it works in any 2- and 4-cycle small engine application.
Fix-It-Fuel cleans and repairs the fuel system without removing the carburetor or injectors, thus avoiding costly repairs and downtime. We recommend using VP Fix-It-Fuel as a pre-treatment before introducing ETHANOL-FREE VP Small Engine Fuel
, which is designed for ongoing use to prevent ethanol-related problems from occurring in the first place.
For easy pouring, try the VP EZ Spout
. It's durable and works on all quart + gallon-sized cans of VP Small Engine Fuels and all quart-sized bottles of VP additives.
We design a technologically-advanced 40:1 mix, 50:1 mix, and Multi-Mix 40:1/50:1, which is excellent for people who own a combination of equipment that calls for both 40:1 and 50:1 fuel.
What Pump Gas Does
Do you currently use pump gas in your expensive outdoor power equipment? To be honest, many people unwittingly assume that if it works fine in their vehicle, it will work fine in their equipment. The truth is, using pump gas is the worst thing you can use. Why is that? In a word, ethanol.
Regular gasoline has ethanol, which is an oxygenate. Firstly, when ethanol-blended gas sits idle in the tank, phase separation takes place. That’s when the ethanol attaches itself to water molecules. This process causes gasoline to separate from the ethanol/water cocktail. Essentially, ethanol absorbs water.
Secondly, water promotes corrosion, which eats away at the vital engine and fuel system components of a 2-cycle or 4-cycle small engine. Those hard-working little engines demand better maintenance.
It doesn’t take much gum or corrosion to foul up a small motor. Moreover, you can't store pump gas long-term because it degrades quickly and forms gums faster. That's why people must put fuel stabilizers in their tanks when storing their outdoor power equipment.
