STIHL will recall 2.3 million various gas powered STIHL yard trimming products. Why? There are concerns that these gas powered yard trimming products cause burn and fire risks.
The problem that led to the recall is level of ethanol is distortnig the fuel cap causing oil to spill. Spilled oil, as Martha Stewart would, say, is a bad thing.
