Have you heard of TruFuel premixed air and oil? Let's start with the basics. What if you no longer need the gas mix? I'm not talking about battery powered outdoor lawn equipment. I mean – what if your fuel is already pre-mixed and ready to use? What if it never went bad? Mixing gas into that 1 gallon plastic container is a necessary task in maintaining my personal lawn equipment. When you get used to it, the truth is – you have to be precise with the oil-air mix. This is troublesome.
Then there's the issue of dealing with ethanol fuels versus ethanol-free solutions. Gases tend to deteriorate over time. You will make a mess when mixing. you understood.
That's where TruFuel premixed gases come in. For small engine equipment owners, TruFuel offers pre-packaged, ready-to-use fuel systems. They have solutions for two-stroke and four-stroke small displacement engines such as those used in lawnmowers, trimmers and chainsaws.
What is TruFuel?
TruFuel premixed gas is made with premium, high-octane, ethanol-free fuel blended with premium synthetic oils. Thus, TruFuel prevents corrosion and build-up. Over time, ethanol (E-15) separates gasoline from oil in two-stroke mixing. It even introduces water into the fuel.
The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) supports these claims and recommends against the use of E-15 fuel. A related advantage of TruFuel is that it remains stable for a longer period of time and does not break down as quickly as traditional oil-gas fuel blends. In fact, TruFuel claims a 2-year lifespan after opening and guarantees that the fuel will never separate. This means fewer issues with freezing your equipment. You also don't have to worry if your lawn mower or trimmer sits unused for a month or two.
TruFuel premix caused a sensation as the first domestic premix product for two-stroke engines. It is available in 50:1 and 40:1 mix ratios (air to oil) as well as an oil-free 4-cycle formula. You can find it at Home Depot, Walmart, and other retailers. If you're focused on smaller bottles, it might seem like an odd product for home and professional users, but TruFuel doesn't just come in 32-ounce and 110-ounce containers.
Commercial or fleet users can purchase 4.375 gallon containers or even 48 gallon drums. Those have a huge discount over the bottled version. For reduced maintenance, this could save some companies money—even more than traditional ethanol-free fuels. As a homeowner, you pay for the features and conveniences that TruFuel provides. Very convenient. It just gives you the option to pay extra.
Calculating TruFuel Premix Gas Cost Per Gallon Math
TruFuel comes with a hefty price tag. You can buy a case of six cans (192 ounces or 1.5 gallons) for around $35. That works out to $23.33 a gallon. If we estimate that (high) ethanol-free currently costs about $4.25/gallon, blended would add another $1 (also generous). You'll soon find out that the consumer grade of TruFuel may deter some people from jumping right in.
