Sorry I didn't mention that my concern is with longevity in a can. I have no problem running the fuel in my truck because new is pumped in on a weekly basis. What I do have a problem with is pumping into a 5 gallon can for small engines & it souring up within 3 months. Even my new John Deere lawn tractor manual warns if you have ethanol gas that's more than 30 days old, don't use it. That tells me a story right there. I use the good stabilizer sold at Tractor Supply but have my doubts that keeps it good for more than 5 months or so. Amazing what Washington & the "greens" throw at us without giving a crap if we want it.

Mr. Shelby, you rebuild carburetors. I'd like to hear your opinion. What kind of messes have you seen on these 2-cylinder carbs using 10%?

I run ethanol in my chain saw and it stays in good shape. The oil seems to function as a stabilizer. Once again, it's not the ethanol that goes bad. It's the gas MIXED with the ethanol. Even conventional gasoline without ethanol goes bad. The old tractor that you cleaned the gunk out of it's fuel system could very well have been caused by 100% gasoline. All gasoline will go bad now sooner than it used to. Once again, it's NOT the fault of the ethanol. If it was, I wouldn't use it. I have for over 35 years without any problem. The only fuel that won't go bad is either aviation fuel or racing fuel. Anything else will. Mike
