The company warns that certain gasoline blends should never be used in lawn mower engines and other small gas engines. Fuel blends containing more than 10 percent ethanol, like E15 or E85 gasoline, or gasoline containing other alcohol blends can damage small gas engines. Repairs required because of the use of these unapproved gasoline blends are not covered under the Briggs & Stratton engine warranty.
The tune-up kits can be purchased online at www.briggsandstratton.com or at authorized Briggs & Stratton dealers and home improvement stores. In addition, the company helps homeowners recycle their old lawn mower oil through participating Briggs & Stratton dealers nationwide. To date, over 150,000 gallons of used engine oil has been recycled. Used mower engine oil can be dropped off in a closed container. Find a participating dealer at www.recyclemoweroil.com.
