If trying to properly educate yourself on an issue by listening to different opinions is "being on a crusade" then so be it. This is a hard one to settle the mind on & know for sure which direction to go with providing the best for small engines that sit a lot.

I disagree that the same answers came across. Some new ascertaining information has come out of this post.

>" If trying to properly educate yourself "

I would submit that if that was the end goal, a strictly scientific experiment would be of the first order.
Take, say, 6 new metal sealed canisters of some sort or another (a jerry can, for example). Pour exactly, say, a gallon of "sample A" in 3 of them. Pour the same amount of "sample B" in another of them. Take a reference sample (perhaps a cup?) from each can and send it off to 3 independent labs for chemical analysis. Let the cans all sit together for the indicated 3 months (based on a comment in a prior reply). Then retrieve another sample from each can and send it to the same 3 labs for the same reports. Compare the before and after results.

I believe that this could well yield more facts (rather than opinions) from which to base decisions.
