It seems every time I use ethanol in something that is going to sit for a long time I have issues the next time I go to use it. I do use it in my M,B,C,and H with out any issues with how it runs and I do not notice a power loss. I prefer not to use it in them however, example #1: this spring my wife tried to start the tiller and it wouldn't start, I dumped in a half tank of new gas and it started on the fourth pull. Example #2 last fall I filled my H with 10% ethanol and drove it 8 miles home over very hilly roads with no issues, this spring of wouldn't run unless the choke was 3/4 on. I dumped 5+ gallons of fresh gas into it and cleared most of it up. Example 3: I use only regular gas in my cheap Harbor Freight generator that only gets used once or twice a year and it starts within 5 pulls and runs fine every time. Example #4: I use 10% ethanol in my work van which is used daily and I have no complaints with it at all there.
Just my experience, I don't think it hurts anything just requires treating it a bit different.
