What Fuel Do You Use for a Toro Snowblower?

Toro recommends using unleaded, regular 87 octoane gasoline for all Toro products, including snow blowers. Toro approves up to 10 percent ethanol or 15 percent methyl tertiary butyl ether in the gasoline, but no more, as unapproved mixtures may lead to performance issues and damages the warranty does not cover.

Toro also recommends purchasing fuel within 30 days of anticipated use to help prevent corrosion from water condensation, and suggests adding a fuel stabilizer to the new fuel to create a layer on top of the gasoline that helps keep the fuel fresh by slowing evaporation of the volatile components of the fuel. Toro advises owners to use gasoline that is free of methanol.
