If this wasn't April Fools Day, and if someone really did hook up a leaf blower to the inlet of a motor home engine, I would expect that a big old motor home engine sucking on a little bitty leaf blower would cause the leaf blower engine to rev up to the point that it would throw a rod.

So, what kind of mileage do the leaf blowers get?


Probably the length of the extension cord

You did see they were 2 stroke engines, right.
Now if it was one of the billfold robbing 4 poker engines, it probably would throw the rod.

In the dirt bike & atv racing worlds, those new fangled 4 poke engine the OEM are offering, has drove the cost of racing up 4 times higher than what it was when everybody was running 2 stroke engines.
