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!

    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers. 
    • When did I claim the election was rigged? It was influenced by Russian propaganda and you have a President that is in all likelihood blackmailed by Russia.    And that is equivalent to some Saudi's donating to a charity somehow? Note that Trump's charity was shut down because it funneled money directly into Trump's pocket.
