I don't know the science of it all, and we don't use ethanol - we're mostly a diesel family (trucks and tractor), but I thought I'd let you know they are trying to allow the increase of ethanol from 10% to 15% this year. If this happens, it may affect what you're talking about.

Think before you throw it away! If you can't use it, maybe someone else can!

Yup, Wisconsin is looking at the same thing. I hope it doesn't happen. As it is, it's not that great for regular fuel-burning machines...especially those with high compression ratios such as my motorcycle. I can still find ethanol-free fuel around here, but it's getting rare.

I use Seafoam in my sled and JD tractor, never had fuel related problems so far. Stabil doesn't work nearly as well.

Default Gas again

Alright's that time again.
Time to put away the snowblower and snowmobiles.
Please don't forget about the snowblower after it is to late.
Next season when you try to start it after the 2 foot storm, forget'll be cleaning it first. Put this on your to do list for the weekend, unless you are still getting snow.
Glad I have a year round Quad with a plow.
