SOURCE: i have a toro ccr 3650 snowblower the electric start just grinds

This problem has been solved! I took the covers off the machine, removed the starter and eventually replaced the drive. Apparently the drive parts were put on back ordered and took about 4 weeks to get the drive set. One thing I suggest if anyone does this is to look at the fly wheel to insure it's in good working order. The dealer I worked with said often that is chewed up (the teeth on the fly wheel) and leads to a bigger headache. Fortunately mine was just fine. The machine now works likes like new as I put in a new spark plug as well!

SOURCE: I have a toro 421 snowblower i filled it up today

it sounds like you had water in the crank case.
Stop running it immediately and drain all the oil. Then make sure the crank case is empty of oil and clean, and refill with fresh oil. After you fill it back up with oil, run it a minute and check again for any milky/foamy oil. If it is clean, check it again after several minutes. If it stays clean, you should be good. If it is milky again, take it for professional service, as you probably have a damaged gasket somewhere.

Why to Use a fuel with the lowest required octane in the car?


Low-octane "regular" gas is usually all that is required. Octane is only a rating of the fuel's resistance to engine-damaging pre-ignition ("knock") in high-performance engines (that few people have). Low octane gas is less expensive and a better value if that's all your engine requires. Best case scenario you're wasting money by filling up with a higher than recommended grade of gas. Worst case scenario that high octane fuel is building up damaging carbon deposits in your engine because it's not being burned as completely as lower octane fuel would be. Check your owner's manual to be sure. Modern high performance cars will sometimes recommend higher octane fuels because they are engineered to use those fuels. The use of lower than recommended octane will not make your car explode, the ECM (Engine Control Module, aka:computer) will adjust the fuel injectors and spark timing to save the engine and compensate for you cheaping out at the pump. Those adjustments will consist of retarding the spark (reducing power and efficiency) as well as dumping lots of extra fuel into the cylinders to cool them, potentially costing you more than getting mid grade or premium IF that's what your car requires. NOTE: Remember that engines need less octane at higher altitudes. If your engine does not "knock" on regular, paying more for a higher octane rating is a waste since the increased octane makes no significant improvement to gas mileage and it is no better for your engine. All available fuels have detergent and additive packages. This will help.good luck.

Is Premium and higher octane better than regular gas in Mazda 3, 2012 car?


Octane ratings have nothing to do with fuel economy or power. The octane rating only indicates how much the fuel air mixture can be compressed before it ignites without the spark plug firing in a hot running engine. Some really high compression engines require higher octane fuels so they don't knock when running. If you don't have a sticker under the filler lid that says you have to use one of higher octane fuels, then don't use high-test.
It used to be that using a low octane fuel in an engine designed to use high octane fuels could damage the engine.
Nowadays, engines are all computer controlled and most high octane engines will re-tune themselves on the fly so that they don't knock if the wrong grade of fuel is used.

Will I get better performance from my Toro two cycycle, if I use higher octane gas?


No you will not. Remove your carburetor and blue compressed air through it to clean out the passages

You got the bulk of contamination out of the tank. The lines will burn off. Try a higher octane gas. Drain any visible lines.

Was told to use premium 89 octane gas only this true?


This is true. The only time you need to apply gasoline with higher octane is when preignition is present. If it sounds like marbles are bouncing in your engine when you are driving then get higher octane. However if the car is in good mechanical condition (cooling system, oil serviced regularly) then 89 octane is perfect.

What octane level of gas should I use for a 2003 Honda Shadow ACE


Usually premium (92 octane). That's what the bikes are designed to run on. Sometimes you can get away with using 89 octane. But try your best to never use 87 octane fuel, unless you're stuck somewhere and that's all you have available to you.
