    Are you fucking kidding me? They are now selling cans of gasoline already mixed with 2 cycle oil so if you have a weed eater, you don't have to pour the little bottle of oil in your gas can. They are even pushing some kind of non mixed canned gas too. Shit's $33 for a case of 1.5 gallons. That's $22 a gallon! Instead of $4.00 worth of gas and $1.50 can of oil. If Schmoopy had a lawn, I bet he'd buy this stuff.

    Son of a.... Admit it, you're jealous you didn't think of it first. Fuck, I shoulda thought of this the day I saw pre-mixed kool-aid.

    Oh yeah. Gotta be 1000% profit.

    The commercial is funny. It show real manly men doing lawn work. Then they spill oil all over the place trying to get it into the gas can. If you're a manly man, you aren't going to buy premixed gas and you probably have the dexterity to pour the oil in the can.

    This stuff may be a total fail. If you are too much of a puss to mix your own oil, you probably pay somebody to do your yard.

    FINALLY -- I hate mixing that crap -- I'm always nervous I'm not doing it right, and I don't label the gas can properly and forget what's in it

    :jj: I buy the "universal" oil. Dump a can in to a gallon of gas and it works on 40:1 and 50:1. They have 4 cycle weedeaters out now but I haven't heard if they are any good. Seems like they would be heavier.

    Summer Blend should only apply to beer.

    I actually like that idea. I use my chainsaw about once a year and I keep a seperate gas can for it. I also have a gas can for a lawn mower and one for diesel. I wouldn't mind removing one from the mix and just getting a can of that shit every year. Reps to the OP for introducing me to it.

    You know what's fucked up to think about... can you ever imagine paying $.99 cents a gallon like we did in the late 90s?

    It will never happen... I recall a lesson I learned from my father in the late 80s or such regarding Sears when they dropped their prices on Craftman tools and such shit.... cut their margins to the bone to reinvigorate business, etc...

    The point was, "once you reduce the price and they are used to paying $1, you'll never get them to pay $2 ever again."

    In this case, once the "economy" is stable at $3.50 a gallon, why the fuck would the product ever be offered at $2.50, or $.98 ever again?

    Christ I wish people would open their eyes and realize that the price of gasoline is a direct correlation to the price of a hamburger as it was in the 50s... first hand I've walked in to a "retro" deli and remarked about how a cheese burger was ten cents back in the day, on their ancient chalk board... and we laugh it off like, "hey look at that a cheeseburger used to be fifteen cents! Now its $7!!"

    And nobody ever asks why or how their wealth has been stolen via the blatant rape of the currency that is forced upon them.

    It is quite sad really... the end is near indeed.

    Sounds like it's ideal for you if you don't mind paying mega super premium prices for the convenience. It would still be cheaper for you to buy a gallon of gas, pour the can of oil in it, use the 1/2 pint on your chain saw then pour the rest into your car gas tank. A little oil isn't going to hurt it if your tank is pretty full.

    It appears as tho you may get it... but I've grown long tired of the SFN "LJH" persona that only drove me in to deep depression regarding these issues... but, the facts remain.

    Look at Europe, right now, and their "austerity."

    The fact of the matter is that their "kicking the debt promise can" down the road has stubbed their toe this time. They kicked a cement filled paint bucket, and it hurts the false promising "elite" when that happens.

    So now you have young Greeks and disenfrancised Muslims (and don't ever think this is not a major part of the European reality right now) acting mad and feeling they are "entitled" to shit...

    Just step back for a second and ponder about what will happen here when the entitlement "first of the month" entitlement spigot is cut off here.

    We are backed in to a corner indeed.

    I can't wait for this new French socialist faggot to butt heads with Germany. Dumb prog thinks he has a printing press to avoid "austerity".

    The righteous indignation of muslims in Europe will be hilarious. Bunch of scumbags who have had no skin in building a country, will burn it down. All because some beaurocrat wanted to pat himself on the back for promoting "diversity" (really creating a welfare class to ensure votes: see labour policy). Lol. Nothing like importing double-digit IQs into a triple-digit IQ economy to ensure prosperity.

    All the UK has left is financialization, aka, the city of London.

    It will be a shit show there if financial institutions fail.

    The fact that Briton imported so much 'other' people isn't a coincidence. They are the main Euro country to succumb to jewry(cultural marxism) in the past 100 years. No coincidence that they were the architects of Israel, just sayin.

    I may be in conspiracy territory here. I report, you decide. :smile:
