    the ethanol will damage fuel lines and most other rubber parts in the fuel system. It's an excellent solvent.

    stay off ethanol fuel as much as possible and make sure your last fill up of the year is ethanol free and stabilize as normal.

    If you have gray tempo original fuel lines, they gotta go. All brass fuel line connections must be cleaned

    If you have to use ethanol fuel. Use Startron at every fillup

    regular fuel here is 2.88, all time low in years. and middle grade being 2.98

    cheaper just to run the additive. this tells me it`s no cheaper on land as it is at the marina...
    I still run ethanol free 91 even though Im paying about 60 cents a gallon more for it.
