Anymore, I just buy the can, pre mixed, Truefuel stuff. It doesn't seem to go bad it the cans, and my equipment starts right up with it.

Not all states, Hellinois for example, make it easy to market EtOH free gas.

After washing you gas over water, drying it with anhydrous calcium sulfate would be recommended.

EtOH as a fuel is a shitting idea, but the corn lobby loves it.

I don't worry about the EtOH in the gas; but I do run all my carbs dry
if they are going to sit more than a few days. And I rotate my gas every
few months.

Sorry, not politics outside of the Political forum... In the politics forum it's all fair game!
