Gas-powered blenders can be incredible useful and fun to have when camping, tailgating, picnicking, boating, or any other situation where electricity is not readily available.
With a portable gas-powered blender, you can bring the party with you, wherever you go! All you need is some fuel to whip up a margarita or frozen drink no matter where you are. No outlets or batteries required.
This article will review three of the best blenders to consider if you are looking for a nifty gas-powered blender to take on your next remote excursion.
Let’s get into it…
3 Best Gas-Powered Blenders
1. The TailGator
First up is the TailGator blender. This sleek gas-powered blender has a fairly compact size and looks a lot like a normal blender. But don’t be fooled – this is no ordinary blender!
Not only does it not have to plug in, but it has a throttle to rev it up! Users rave that this blender can give you a perfectly blended frozen drink in under 15 seconds! And the engine can handle 6500 margaritas per gallon of fuel!
This gas-powered blender is straightforward and easy to use, and can easily be transported anywhere to get the party started! It even has an optional carrying case!
|Price||~$360 USD (it may be hard to get your hand on one of these as they tend to be out of stock, but this is a price I’ve come across).|

-Base: 25cc Poulan 2-stroke, 2.25 HP gasoline-powered engine. With drive shaft, motor coupling, trigger, cable, starter rope, fuel tank (a full tank takes 11 oz of gas), primer bubble, choke lever, stop switch, leg mount, and rubber legs.

2. The Extreme Daquiri Whacker
Next up is the Daquiri Whacker blender. As its name suggests, this gas-powered blender can whip up a daquiri or any other frozen beverage in seconds thanks to its powerful engine.
With the powerful engine comes the noise of a powerful engine. Much like the TailGator, this blender is quite noisy with a motor that sounds like a revving motorcycle! However, based on customer reviews, the noise seems to actually be a bonus! Definitely an attention-catcher!

3. The BlenderBlaster
Lastly, we have the BlenderBlaster. From what I can gather, this neat little gas blender was invented by a Wisconsin machine shop owner back in 2006. These blenders were sold online and became so popular that they were shipped worldwide! With a unique motorcycle-like look, it’s no wonder these blenders pique people’s interest.
The BlenderBlaster uses Honda motors and was tested and approved by Honda.
