I should contact the dealer and see what info they...

Watched Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri last night.
Great movie! Dark comedy. Best movie of this type I've seen in many years.
Should get some Oscar nominations IMO.

To me it depends on how long you expect to keep and use it. In years. I swore off B&S years ago and have had nothing but good service with Honda, and Kohler. If none of that matters, go cheap.

Bypassing Fuel Thermostat for Better Performance

Definitely Savannah over Atlanta. Or consider Charleston as well.
Ride the Bourbon trail in Kentucky. Catch a distillery tour.
