Does anyone use the small engine fuel by VP? I have been since new and have no problems. Use it in all of my small engines. I mix it for the 2 cycle one's.

Haven't run across VP before but it looks to be very similar to "Trufuel" and the same price, around $23 a gallon.
Just too expensive for me to use and I'm lucky that I have stations where they sell non-oxygenated fuel. I'd rather use Stabil or Seafoam in E10 as most people don't have any problems with their equipment that way.

Is it true that Tecumseh flat head engines vary the horsepower mostly by changing the carburetor? Meaning, a 8hp Tecumseh is basically the same as a 10hp Tecumseh, but the carb is different to make the more horsepower?

I'm planning to change the lower pulley diameter on my old Dynamark which has a 8hp Tecumseh. But I may power it up if I can to make sure it has enough torque to churn through the tough snow even if the auger is spinning faster.
