If you had water in the gas it would show up in the sediment bowl.
Condensers today aren't what they used to be. A condenser going bad can make a two banger act like it's running lean. The spark weakens and the only way the tractor will run is at low throttle where the weak spark won't blow out. Today's new condensers can be bad right out of the box. Seems to me like the two bangers have more trouble with condensers or maybe it's just because I'm around them a lot.
Don't believe the anti-ethanol crap. I've run it exclusively for 30 years in everything but the chainsaw (manufacturer warns not to use it) and I've had zero problems. All of my neighbors run ethanol and none of them complains about it. By the way, ethanol does NOT magically suck water out of the air and deposit it in the fuel. I just started up a tractor with multi-year old 10% ethanol in the tank and it started right up. The gas smells fine, which did surprise me. Jim

I have never had any luck with ethanol in my lawn mowers, tractors, etc. They will barely run or run like crap until the tank is drained and replaced with regular gas. I do run it in my vehicles, but never anything else. Maybe we have a different strength here, seems to me like it is 15%.
