Some gas stations may offer 15 percent eth anol (E15) gas or higher ethanol fuel blends, but any fuel containing more than 10 percent ethanol can damage-- and is illegal to use in--small engine equipment not designed for it. 5. Label your fuel can with the date of purchase and ethanol content of the fuel. Never put "old" gas in your outdoor power equipment.

Men often worry about having a heart attack or getting cancer, but many don't make healthcare a priority. They may schedule regular tune ups for their prized vehicles, but when it comes to preventative healthcare, they often fail to schedule their annual checkup. Men, don't you think it's time to make your health a priority? "Many major health risks men face, such as heart disease and lung or colon cancer, can be prevented and treated if diagnosed early," stated Dr. William Minteer, invasive cardiologist with ARH Cardiology Associates. "That's why an annual checkup is so important. If you don't want to do it for yourself, then do it for your loved ones." Since most men need to pay more attention to their health, let's look at the following: Heart Disease--American men die from heart disease more than anything else, and more than 1 in 3 men have some form of cardiovascular disease. There are many forms, but coronary artery disease is most common. It causes the arteries to narrow and leads to heart attack.

Follow your doctor's orders if you have high cholesterol or hypertension, and control your blood sugar if you have diabetes. Cancer More American men die of lung cancer than any other form of cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. Prostate cancer and colorectal cancer are the next two greatest concerns. Prevention: Don't smoke, and avoid secondhand smoke, to reduce lung cancer risk. To minimize your risk of other forms of cancer, maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, wear sunscreen, only drink alcohol in moderation and see your doctor regularly for cancer screenings.
