I just bought a new Jiffy Legend 3hp. In one of the previous threads you had mentioned mixing Sta-bil with the gas. Do you mix this in right away when you mix the oil in? Also do you use the recommended mix from Sta-bil? Any help would be appreciated. I sure am impressed with this auger, if the Stealth cuts any faster it would almost drag you into the hole.
Thanks
Brian

I mix my stabilizer right with my gas when I am mixing the oil with the gas. That way your system always has stabile in it. Gas can go rotten with in 30 days and cause big trouble. I always mix it right as the manufacture recommends. I have been doing it like this for the last 3 years and have had no troubles and that is on a Jiffy that is over 20 years old.

I agree, fallow the 24/1 mix with a recommended dose of Sta-Bil for a month or so, let it break in well. I generally mix 1 gallon at a time, no more.

You can lean it out a bit in latter mix's and add both the Sta-Bil and a shot of Sea Foam. Your carb will love ya for it.

Just be sure not to lean out the oil mix too much, just a bit. You will get less fowling of the plug and less oil residue out the tail.

That Stealth is a Sweet auger Eh! It chuck ice like a starving beaver!

    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
