Tip of the day Fuel Recommendations
WARNING: Explosive Fuel!
Gasoline is extremely flammable and its vapors can explode if
ignited. Before servicing the fuel system, make sure there are no
sparks, open flames or other sources of ignition nearby as these
can ignite gasoline vapors. Disconnect and ground the spark
plug leads to prevent the possibility of sparks from the ignition
General Recommendations
Purchase gasoline in small quantities and store in clean,
approved containers. A container with a capacity of 2
gallons or less with a pouring spout is recommended.
Such a container is easier to handle and helps eliminate
spillage during refueling.
Do not use gasoline left over from the previous season,
to minimize gum deposits in your fuel system and to
ensure easy starting.
Do not add oil to the gasoline.
Do not overfill the fuel tank. Leave room for the fuel to
Fuel Type
For best results, use only clean, fresh, unleaded gasoline
with a pump sticker octane rating of 87 or higher. In
countries using the Research method, it should be 90
octane minimum.
Unleaded gasoline is recommended as it leaves less
combustion chamber deposits and reduces harmful
exhaust emissions. Leaded gasoline is not
recommended and must not be used on EFI engines, or
on other models where exhaust emissions are
Gasoline/Alcohol blends
Gasohol (up to 10% ethyl alcohol, 90% unleaded
gasoline by volume) is approved as a fuel for Kohler
engines. Other gasoline/alcohol blends are not
Gasoline/Ether blends
Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE) and unleaded
gasoline blends (up to a maximum of 15% MTBE by
volume) are approved as a fuel for Kohler engines.
Other gasoline/ether blends are not approved.

Kohler 05/15/2018


Yes, we make reliable power products (like engines and generators), but anybody can say that. At Kohler, every engine we make is designed to help you achieve more than you imagined.

Your job, your earnings, your time — that’s what matters most. That’s why we’re maniacally obsessed with making great engines. They have to work — or you don’t. You’ll only get as far as your engine can take you. That’s why it has to be a KOHLER.

Built to last since 1920, KOHLER engines have been battled-tested at the South Pole, Hoover Dam, WWII and victory lane. And today, we power the toughest equipment in the commercial world. From heavy construction to lawn and landscape, the pros count on KOHLER.

Every KOHLER engine is meticulously quality-tested start to finish. Our engineering team runs tens of thousands of hours of performance tests during our design process. Everything’s examined — down to the bolt.

Once the engine design passes our inspection, it’s ready for production. But before it leaves our factory, we put it through the paces one more time. The result is total reliability.

We are agents of change. A company of fearless thinkers driven to do everything better. And we have the pedigree to prove it.

EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection)
We created the world’s first EFI engines for lawn mowers 20 years ago and now offer more EFI engines than any other brand.

KDI (Kohler Direct Injection)
We built the world's first Tier 4 diesel engine (KOHLER Diesel KDI) without a DPF. This revolutionary engine provides operators with a Tier 4 final solution and significantly lower operating costs.

With 13,000 dealers worldwide, we provide the help you need any time, anywhere. And we’re not afraid to go above and beyond to make sure you’re taken care of. There’s no part we can’t get, no question we can’t answer.

TruFuel Products 05/15/2018

The perfect fuel for all 2-cycle, air cooled engines requiring a 50:1 or 40:1 mix. Premixed & ready to use gasoline formulated with synthetic oil, a fuel stabilizer, and ethanol-free gasoline.

2-cycle fuel often becomes stale and contaminated after repeated opening of the storage container. If not mixed properly, according to original equipment manufacturer recommendations, excess smoke; plug fouling and short engine life can be expected.

Synthetic oil, mixed at the correct ratio, with the correct octane, and ethanol-free gasoline ensures better lubrication, reduces smoke, minimizes engine deposits, and extends engine life. .

Available in straight gas for 4-cycle engines as well. A great item for fire departments and other government agencies.

Available to all CPD customers.


We are back up and running! We thank you for your patience 😊

Our Story

Founded in 1985, Central Power Distributors, Inc. (CPD, Inc.) immediately impacted the marketplace with its determination to provide the best customer service in the industry. With the industry’s need for a results-driven distribution partnership, manufacturers immediately recognized the ability of Central Power Distributors, Inc. (CPD, Inc.) to add value and flexibility to the engine market customers. Always geared for success, in a short time CPD began leading the distribution industry as the first choice supplier of quality air-cooled engines to the Original Equipment Manufacturers including nationally recognized names as Associate Engineering, Coleman/Sanborn, Crary, Goodall, Dosko, Boss Industries, Grainger, Ingersoll, Northern Tool Manufacturing, MBW, Minuteman, C.F Struck, Schweiss, Tennant, Toro, Turfco, Wacker, W.S. Darley, Winco and others.

1994 saw an expansion of our customer base to include the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, eastern two thirds of Wisconsin, northern half of Illinois, and the northwestern corner of Indiana. Service to this area of responsibility is provided by our distribution center located in Menomonee Falls Wisconsin.

In 1999 we expanded our customer base to include the remainder of Indiana and Michigan, as added Kentucky and Ohio. Service to this new area of responsibility was provided by our distribution center that was located in Dayton Ohio. Unfortunately, with Platinum Equity Group’s decision to discontinue the production of Tecumseh branded engines in 2009, this location was closed.

In October of 2005 we became the Central Distributor for the MTD Consumer Group. We aquired Hance Companies and preparedourselves for the expansion of our core business within the Outdoor Power Equipment industry.
