Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Why is Sure-Starter better than competitive fuels?

Answer: Sure-Starter is a proprietary mixture of premium gasoline components for 2- and 4-stroke engines that is safe to operate, clean-burning, produces no harmful emissions, starts reliably, and has a shelf life of 1-3 years. The fuel does not require additives or mixing of any oils or lubricants.

Question: Will using Sure-Starter in my equipment void the warranty?

Answer: No. Sure-Starter fuel meets or exceeds the warranty requirements for all major 2- and 4-stroke engine manufacturers. This includes Briggs & Stratton, Honda, Kawasaki, Kohler, Tecumseh, Poulan, Toro, STIHL, and many more. The fuel does not contain ethanol, toxic metals, or exotic chemicals.

Question: What if my engine is idling rough or running hot when I use Sure-Starter fuel?

Answer: In rare circumstances consumers may experience rough idle or hot temperatures in engines upon changing to a different fuel. Sure-Starter actually removes the gums/deposits left over from bad fuels. Therefore, you should consult the equipment manual to determine how to re-adjust the idle and fuel mixture settings to get your engine in top form again. If you have additional questions, please contact us to speak to a qualified technician.

Question: Can I get a volume discount?

Answer: Yes! We offer highly competitive discounts on all bulk order quantities larger than 20 gallons. Please contact us for a quote.

Question: Do you sell through distributors?
Answer: Currently, we do not sell through distributors. However, we are exploring the possibility to add distributors in the near future.

Question: With what equipment will Sure-Starter work?

Answer: Sure-Starter will work well in any small engine and can even make it run better! This includes lawn mowers, gas-powered portable generators, chainsaws, and many more. Typically, 2-stroke engines are typically smaller, handheld devices that use premixed fuel to aid in lubricating high-RPM engine components; 4-stroke engines are typically found in larger gas-powered equipment.

Question: Do you offer special premix fuels?

Answer: Yes. We can customize to meet the customer's needs; however, our 2-stroke premix fuel contains a premium synthetic lubricant that provides adequate lubrication for equipment with oil-fuel blend ratios from 40:1 to 100:1. To date, all of our clientele have been satisfied with our premium premixed fuel.

Question: Is fuel stabilizer or gum-out needed?

Answer: No! Our fuel is designed to not break down or gum up for a very long time (shelf life of 1-3 years), enabling you to store your equipment for years at a time with no stabilizer required.

Question: How long can I store Sure-Starter fuel in equipment?

Answer: We expect Sure-Starter fuel to last a minimum of 1-3 years before showing any signs of oxidation, assuming the can remains factory-sealed. This means you never have to worry about your equipment gumming up over the winter or summer seasons.
