    I wonder how the 4.88 tune would work for someone with stock gears. Any takers lol? Just curious.

    Small engines will ALWAYS run better on ethanol free. Especially the two stroke ones (which technically require it). My Echo weedwacker runs well only on E-free

    I’ve been an echo guy for years. Always bought the entry level commercial grade stuff rather than residential. All this ethanol crap has me seriously considering the new 52V electric stuff.

    Yeah, GDI is not so great running ethanol gas. At least that is my understanding.

    Fo sho'! Echo guy myself now. No more husky's. Only 2 stroke I ever had that I can get to fire on the first pull with some creative choke manipulation!

    So no one has tried ethanol free fuel with any recent tunes? Imma try it I think. Interested to see how OLE handles it. I can only get 89 here in Jax.
    @OVTune any data on benefit from corn-free gas? I assume the knock sensor feedback would quickly adapt.

    Kicking myself for not trying it today.. I did a 350 mile trip, hauling a trailer full of furniture for my daughter in college.. And only now looked to see that I passed a half-dozen ethanol-free stations on the trip.

    Clearly you had other things on your mind at the time man! Perhaps how you might spend that extra time doing uninterrupted mods on the taco! She's 175 miles away now...I'm sure you miss her.
    I will try some ethanol free at next fill-up and report back. I know modern engines are designed to handle ethanol (seals/gaskets) but I still think that stuff can be toxic. Especially in humid climates.

    If y'all remember my earlier post about that guy named Murphy, he stopped by again. My reg key all the sudden doesn't work, not recognized, can't changes tunes. I've got the purple dongle, nothings changed, dedicated laptop just for tuning. Tried reinstalling the key, no luck, spent a couple hours trying everything. Sent an email to zendesk. Just swapped out tunes a couple months ago. Strange

    Quick update, already heard from Mat, awesome customer service. Don't know what people are always going on about.

    Update, was able to load new tunes, my pcmflash software was a Rev behind. Happy man

    I put the 1.05 on 93 performance tune on my 16 last night. Was a crash course in tuning software since I also had 04B01 and found out the hard way I couldn't straight flash it with the ovtune. I called my dealer about having them do the TSB update for the transmission and I couldn't even get a call back from a service writer. Searched around here and found the techstream software and flashed to 04B04 before being able to do the ovtune. I'm only 50 miles into the learning process but I'm liking it so far. I wasn't sure if I should have it relearn AV or not so I left it alone.

    Be VERY careful flashing TSBs to ECUs. When I did my own, it work flawlessly. When I did another in our local group...bricked.

    There's a solid set of instructions in the 1st Post of the MT Update thread. I would recommend following that.

    If you have our flash kit and the ecu bricks during techstream reflash, just recover it with our software and try again, easy.

    I really wish our software could flash the TSBs but both the ECU and TCU have to be flashed at the same time which we can't do.

    Does this mean that theoretically your software could flash MT TSBs?

    Yes, I tried 91 clear (non-ethanol) last weekend and it drove like a dream. Plus my mileage went up almost 3-4 mpgs
