    89 pure or 93 with ethanol?

    After setting a world record for the longest time to change a carbon seal (nearly 2.5 months) since everything went wrong and I wanted to light the ski on fire and chop it to pieces DAMN YOU SEADOOOOOO.....oh back on track now....

    I found a gas station near my house that sells pure gas but it's only 89....your thoughts but, if you have facts that would be better.

    93 would be safer

    Nothing wrong with ethanol if you dont let it sit around and absorb water.

    The Small percentage of ethanol is actually what raises the octane rating.

    Biggest thing about ethanol is that it separates from gas and water. As long as the ski doesn't sit up you're good with 93

    They lie and the ethanol is closer to 22%. it will lean the fuck out of you motor if your on the edge. No effect on hoses etc.. This isn't E85 they are adding to the fuel, its trash. Go 89 no eth IMO. Lots of tests done here in orlando area and its really bad. BP93 is about the best pump with eth. It takes almost twice the alcohol to achieve the same AF as petrol.

    Ran it without refueling, now this gas has been in it since early June when it was last used and has the "Orlando gas" Duke talks about ....ran like total crap but at least didn't see any leaks, didn't sink and nothing came flying apart as I was sure would happen since I had never done this before.

    Most re-fueling docks and ports carry ethenol free gas also. I won't run my ski with any type of ethenol running through it's vein's.

    Ethanol has caused a lot of power loss. If you have the chance to not run it in your street machine where you can track the milage as opposed to the E10, 10 percent Ethanol you will feel and see the difference. I know I am a long ways away from you, but we don't run that Ethanol crap out here in our water toys.

    Go Ducks!
