    nope. some states like NJ have been running it for years. biggest issue is water in the gas. so make sure your fuel system is sealed and vented properly and you will be fine.

    Do a search, there have been several informative threads discussing ethanol.

    I avoid ethanol in my marine fuel as much as possible.

    I run the hell out of it for 10 or so min AFTER the low fuel buzzer comes on, then I put about an oz of STABIL and it should be fine

    Well than fill your tank, add the Stabil, run for 10 mins and then you will have done something.
