Is it possible to use the new E10 petrol?

For all GARDENA petrol-driven lawn mowers and petrol-driven pumps with 4-stroke motor, E10 can be used without any problem. Anyway, please note that the E10 petrol may change with storage. A storage for up to 30 days is acceptable; however when stored over a longer period (also in the tank of the device), deposits could build in the carburetor and cause malfunction.

To prevent this we recommend to use fuel stabilizers with E10 petrol, for instance Honda Fuelstabilizer or Briggs & Stratton fuel stabilizer. The mixing ratio is indicated on the bottle of the stabilizer. For the GARDENA petrol-driven pumps with 2-stroke motor E10 petrol must no be used. We recommend special fuel such as Aspen 2T or premium fuel without E10 in the appropriate mixing ratio with 2-stroke engine oil.


Storage during winter with E10 fuel in the tank?

The fuel may change if stored for more than 30 days. Stale fuel might cause building of residues in the fuel system or on important carburetor components. To prevent this we recommend to use fuel stabilizers with E10 petrol, for instance Honda Fuelstabilizer or Briggs & Stratton fuel stabilizer. The mixing ratio is indicated on the bottle of the stabilizer.

Alternative: Discharge the fuel into a permitted container before winter. Then let the engine run until it shuts off due to fuel failure. This is recommended in general also for fuels without E10.
