My experiences & a totally unscientific opinion.
I use 10% ethanol pump gas in everything because that is what is convenient to buy. Lawn tractor, snow blower, mower, tractor, etc. Bought a new mower in 88, used it 4 years. Put it in storage with gas in it in 93. Dug it out in 02. Started on first pull, no problems. Went back into storage until last week. Started on first pull again, with the same 20 year old gas in tank.
One other unit in my fleet needs carb cleaning, idle passage plugged. Haven't used that one since 03.
Makeing ethanol- some experts claim that it is a good energy supply. However, if they would add all the energy needed to do soil prep, planting, weed control, harvest, & transport the corn, plus the refining process, I think it would show a net loss. Just my humble opinion.

Willie, you forget all the energy it takes to extract oil from the ground, transport it across the world, and fuel the ships and planes it takes to defend that pathway. Farmers will grow corn because we are good at it and that is what some of this land is best suited for. In the 80's, when we were awash in the stuff they told us to find new uses for it. We already had, it was promoted, accepted and embraced, and here we are. The argument of it being an "energy waster" is a hollow one. All energy sources waste energy for the simple reason that energy cannot be made or lost. Only changed in form. In the changing process is where the energy gets lost, due to heat. End of sermon.

Also cleaned up the smog in cities like Denver, LA, Albuquerque, Phoenix. Hong Kong & Beijing need it!
