That's very cool! Is this an off the shelf kit or did you pull the parts together and do the welding?

Are you guys testing this "non ethanol" gas or just paying extra and hoping it's true? I ask because on another forum a boat mechanic swears he's tested hundreds of boat tanks that were supposed to be non ethanol and most came up with 10% ethanol.
I know that have bought supposedly non ethanol only to find it had ethanol when I tested it.

I went thru a time when I was paying out lotsa bux to fix my mowers. The mechanics recommended starbrite fuel additive. Been using it now for about 10 years. No shop time for the machines since and 99% one pull starts.

A. Small gas motor is a very good idea, remember you can use biodegradable oil in a lightweight two stoke is great and good or the environment

I think most of my experience with motor boats has led me to be suspicious of the motors stranding me somewhere. Problems with me and motors started with mowers, then bikes, then cars, chainsaws, and a couple of memorable boat trips that turned into two one way trips instead of one round trip.
Now I have an electric skeet thrower. I also have scar from stitches inside my right forearm from my old manual thrower. Makes me a little leery.
