    Ethanol gasoline destabilizes and absorbs moisture quickly and can prevent starting, cause stalling and plug fuel filters.



    Here are some additives you can try

    I have not heard anything bad about them yet. But Star Tron has the most fantastic claims.

    The Best Solution for Ethanol Problems













    Marine Formula STA-BIL


    • America's #1 Selling Marine Fuel Additive Brand!
    • BEST Ethanol Problem Fighter
    • More than FOUR TIMES the Fuel System Cleaner than in Regular STA-BIL
    • DOUBLE the corrosion preventer than in Regular STA-BIL
    • Prevents corrosion from moisture & ethanol-induced water attraction
    • Improves marine engine performance YEAR-ROUND, not just for seasonal storage








    Star Tron Fuel Treatment









    SEA FOAM FUEL TREATMENT









    A good read on fuel degradation LINK



    Where to find alcohol free fuels LINK









    Edit: I just found this stuff online. They claim to be able to reverse phase separation

    I've had to go from 87 to 89 octane to stop the pinging in hot weather. Also it was easy to find non-ethanol blends in East Tennessee.That's very hard to do here in cental Florida.

    With ethanol I can't redline the tachometer in 5fth gear. With pure gasoline hitting 9500 rpm is no problem in 5fth gear! Going over 9500 rpm is no problem. I backed off at about 9600.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    I use Sea Foam for all my engines. Van, boat, TW, generators and mower. 1 oz per gallon for storage, more for cleaning the fuel system and engine. Capt D.

    Around here, all there is available is 10% Ethanol



    Sea Foam is good stuff for cleaning out all kinds of crap! It was suggested to me by my car mechanic for a dirty throttle body on an old truck, and did wonmders. It's revived a lawn mower and a boat that I know of...

    I swear by Sea Foam, i put it in everything that has an engine. I also run 91 octane, my bike does better with a higher octane level at high altitude (7000-10000).
