Default Re: Bicycle Engine Sputter

alcohol will not mix with the type of oils we use, has to be castor oil or an syn. oil that will mix with alcohol. a very small shot of alcohol probably won't hurt but no more than a shot. alcohol will do nasty things to your engine if its not done right. Best thing if you think your fuel has water is get rid of it all including the fuel filter and fuel in the float bowl. The inline paper fuel filter that we should be using will absorb some water but then will become water wet and kind of plug off. It can take a lot of dirt but not much water. Deacon is right alcohol will mix with gas and alcohol will mix with water. I still don't like the taste though makes me spit fire.
