Stephen - Thanks very much for your answer re: ethanol. Do you have any comment re: part 2 below on alocohol versus ether blends?Thanks.Scott---------------------------------------------Subject: Fuel choicesQuestion:Is it best to steer away from fuels which may contain up to 10% ethanol?Also, I read years ago to steer away from fuels that blend in alcohol (Shell at the time) in preference to those which use ether (Amoco at the time). Any truth to this & any guidance regarding preference of fuels from various vendors today.Answer:Yes, stay away from ethanol. Ethanol contains water, water promotes rust and corrosion. Something that is not needed or wanted in a fuel system. It also chews on rubber hoses and causes many issues.
