Default Re: Ethanol Conditioners?

It also messes up carbs and dries up fuel lines. It leaves gunk in the carb when the fuel dries, making starting a harder thing.

I know this because when you have a boat, Ethenol does the same thing to your carbs and fuel lines. I used to put Sta-bil with my fuel for my boat. It helps if you use whatever you are fueling with Ethenol more ofthen. If you use it for recreation, or once in a while, then Ethenol build up will occur and cause problems. They are using 10-15% Ethenol now. Some vehicles (my Titan) can run on E-85% Ethenol. It's much cheaper, but has less power. So, you get less power/miles per galon. So, it pretty much evens out.
