Mixing fuels is a no-no

Chris White of Awendaw looked at his brother-in-law, excited about fishing after seeing trip photos for days, and said, “Just kick back and relax. We’ve got about a 15-minute ride to the fishing hole, and the weather, the tide — everything is just right. We’re going to wear the fish out.”†
