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

wayne z,

My city is not listed.
I don't know how long they have been putting ethanol in the gas, but I just realized last week this fact.
I thought it was just a US thing.

I noticed my rubber fuel line is not soft like it used to be, it's hard and does not like to go back on, one day it got cracked.
I blamed it on the regular gas leeching out the plastic softeners.
Could be that 10% ethanol then.

My Echo power blend 2 stroke oil contains stabilizers, I thought that was there primarily to store the gas, but perhaps they do it for the ethanol damage too?

Alcohol, the cause of, and the solution to; all of lifes problems.

Not just bad for your liver and brain anymore.
I love my Motor Bicycle, I love Beer, I'll try not to like them both at once.
