Default Re: Regular with up to 10% booze-a-haul, or high octane w/out?

What you have to watch out for is fuel lines, anything rubber or neoprene will see a shorter life running alcohol based fuels. The kit supplied fuel lines are prone to premature degradation and the alcohol will hasten that. The engine won't really care but gaskets and other parts that are in contact with your fuel will suffer. That includes the 'O' rings in the kit petcock and the one on the intake manifold/carburetor, if you're using one there.
