    Ethanol Fuel

    Seem to be getting alot of H20 (?) in the fuel strainer under the glove box which I empty out about every 4th tank. I'm hearing that it is due to using ethanol gas. Anyone else seeing this?

    10% ethanol here and never a drop of H2o in over 100 hours.

    Never have any water in mine in FL 99% humidity. We also have up to 10% ethanol here. I can always tell when it's added because my cars' exhaust smells like ammonia...seems to happen every time prices go up. A friend of mine owns a marine supply store & has told me that many boat owners are having problems with ethanol eating fuel system gaskets...hope we don't have this problem with skis.
