I think his question was in regard to Echo's new requirement to use 89 octane fuel (if you ask them they will say 89 minimum - higher is OK), but their manuals now just say 89 octane. It seems odd fo

Just one other thought - the job is no more difficult with a little heavier wire and a bigger panel. A little money spent on heavier wire will give you better voltage now and may make the difference
