Fortunately I'm in a part of the country where "recreational gasoline" is plentifully available. And it's actually becoming more so - made another trip to Wisconsin from Montana, and for the first time, I was able (with some looking) to find booze-free gas everywhere except in North Dakota. And since US 12 only cut a corner on that state...it was no real problem.
It's not hard to see why it's becoming common. All over the country, lawn mowers, chain saws, outboards and snowmobiles - and motorcycles - are having MAJOR problems, because it's a poor fuel. Poor in terms of how it absorbs water and how it promotes corrosion. Bad enough in a car; but much harder on a small engine.
I suppose in another ten years it may finally go away. How long did we have to fight the 55-mph speed limit? 1974 to 1987...thirteen years. We're eight years on booze-enhanced gasoline...five more or so, at least I devoutly hope it's only that.
