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

Here in Ga. in the 13 county metro Atlanta clean air zone all fuel contains ethanol. What I have found is over time every small engine leaks fuel, all hoses will harden and crack. My leaf blower only made it about three months before it started leaking. So now everytime I buy fuel I put ethanol treatment in first then the fuel and mix. Red stabil does not have the additives needed, the green does. I use the additive 4 plus 2 by omc marine for outboard engines in my boat, so that what I use in all small engines. The mechanic at the marina says since the adding of ethanol to fuel the carb problems on older engines has increased.
Your results may not be the same,Greg
