My 825i cuts out or misses when pulling hard to go up a hill. Also does it a little when traveling above 20 mph. I thought it might be old gas, so I added some fresh 93 octane gas (about 2 gallons to about 2 gallons of old) and sea foam. It doesn't seem to be any better. Any thoughts or should I just use up the gas as is and then put new in. The gas runs my generator fine.

Sounds like the fuel pump. I would also change the filter.

my aunts 620I was kinda doing the same thing earlier this spring. here there was a small filter along the back of the cab-zip-tied in the wiring harness. my uncle and her never knew it was there the whole time they owned it. it's small too--maybe even smaller than a garden tractor's gas inline filter. anyways i hauled it over to a fella who works on it from time to time for her.

he changed it while we waited --been going since pretty good. now and then it gives fits-and my uncle puts a few drops of something he bought at tractor supply-i don't know the name-but he swears by it-and her-cause it makes it run like new then.

maybe get a bottle of that and try:dunno: i'll ask today and post back later. it has a certain color to its bottle he claims.

Gas filter. Change it.

I agree with first changing the fuel filter.

Also, gas - this gas with ethanol in it goes bad very quickly. It can affect how small engines run after the fuel is only a couple months old. So I would also get all the old fuel out and replace with fresh.

If you have it available I would only use non-ethanol gas in any/all small gas engines.

I will look into a new filter. Gator is a 2014 model but only has 48 hours on it. Thanks for the suggestions.

Update

I put one ounce of sea foam additive per gallon for a couple of tank fulls and the missing while going up hills and when pulling hard went away. Thanks for your thoughts but I tried the easy way first and it worked.
