PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Ethanol powers your lawnmowers, weed eaters, ATVs, and more.
But that fuel can also permanently damage those small engines without the proper treatment.
Ethanol burns up the inside of the engines, making them almost impossible to repair.
Marty Callantine, shop foreman at Ellington's Small Engine Repair, said he sees this problem every day with small engines.
Callantine said to use ethanol free gasoline to avoid this issue completely. This gasoline costs about 40 cents more per gallon, but he said it is worth it.
