I gave up trying to find ethanol free high octane fuel at service stations. Seems only 87 or rarely 89 octane is available. So I resorted to canned fuel from Lowes or HD and it has solved my run performance and fuel degradation issues.
It's expensive but unless you're cutting mega firewood it goes a long way and the after opening shelf life is 2 years. I started using the 4 stroke version in my Honda generator after spending hours cleaning the crud out of the carb jets.
And I went south when I recently bought a new chainsaw. Got an Echo and deviated from the Stihl/Husky dominance. So far it's great.
