Try Aspen fuel - Arbtalk Offer

Recommended Posts

Some good points made there old woodchip!

 

we are working hard in getting as many dealers as possible and judging by our sales figures, Aspen is selling more and more every month which is great! and hopefully we will have a dealer near you soon.

 

We have no connection with Shell or BP.

 

Environment talk is always going to be a tough one, especially when it comes to fuel. But the main reason we think you should use Aspen fuel is for your own health.

 

 

Have you asked your local dealer if they would stock it?

Heres a link to wikipedia explaining the health effects of benzene which is very much present in regular unleaded petrol. Note the reference to dizziness and headaches which users on the forum who use aspen report they no longer experience.

 

Benzene - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (scroll down to health effects)

 

:thumbup1:

we get told not to rely on wikipedida at college, as the pages can be edited by anyone and therefore are not always correct

Yeah but that wiki entry is wildly wrong....in fact since 2000 benzene levels in uk petrol have been less than 1% by volume.....(source:UKPIA):001_smile:

 

 

didnt mean to quote the entire wiki page, was merely refering to the health effects part.

 

but, if you have a read through the page youl find that it even states that the european benzene limit in petrol is 1%. just like on the UKPIA website.

 

Aspen in sweden carried out an experiment and found out that a modern chainsaw running on normal 95 octane unleaded fuel pushes out the same amount of benzene emissions as 57 modern cars.

and that a modern chainsaw running on aspen only pushes out half the benzene emission as 1 car.

Keen to try some aspen fuel, we cut our Yew maze every year and i always dread doing it. Usually takes three of about a week to do and we all suffer badly from the fumes lingering down the narrow paths. We've got three ageing sthil hs 45 hedge cutters which have always run on regular fuel and oil; i would like to try these on aspen for this job but am concerned about using it in older machines, do you think they will happily convert to running on aspen for this job?

Hi Bart,

 

In most cases there isnt a problem with converting from normal fuel to Aspen, the worst that could happen is that the rubbers in the carb might take ill effect of the lack of solvents in Aspen and may require changing.

 

This is a cheap fix but might be worth noting so that you get some time to try it out before going straight into the job and finding only then that you need to make any changes.

I am not a marketing guru but wouldnt it make sense to be pushing the garden centres and the likes of B&Q who sell crap tools and oil, the public would welcome this fuel and it would make it much more available. not that I would support B&Q but you should sell more than you do at present.

We all seem to want it but cant get the stuff unless it's in bulk

I have been using Aspen for a good couple of months now, it is worth the extra money. Today we cut a big laurel hedge and loads of shrubs with no ill effects, no horrid fumes in the face and no feeling sick at lunch time. i wont be using normal fuel again and to be honest i dont notice the difference in cost.
