oddly enough the only thing i have had trouble with so far was my tractor today it has sat about a month with what i believe is e85 gas in it and it was having troubles running when i decided to fire it up and drive it around the yard. but go figure all my 2 cycle stuff can sit for 6 months with the crap gas in them and will fire up with no problems

I have found several places here that doesn't sell ethanol in their gas, so I should be okay. Would like to buy it in Missouri, where gas is 10-15 cents cheaper(6 miles away)but all of Missouri gas has ethanol and they don't have to mark the pumps. So Kansas gas it is for me.

I'm in NJ where ethanol-mixed gasoline is in every gas station in the state, so I'm stuck with using the mix in my 2-cycle equipment. So far, the only ones that have been affected are two of my chain saws. One had the plastic fuel line almost disintegrate. When I started to remove the line, it was in 6 short pieces. The carb in the other had to be rebuilt, so that meant buying kit over the Internet. I guess having to do such repairs is a fact of life today. I've gotten into the habit of draining the tank on my string trimmer, chain saws, blowers and mini-tiller if I know I'll not be using the machine for a few weeks or more. Not sure it will do much good, but that's about the best I can think of.

As you can imagine, I'm very much opposed to this ethanol plague, and I don't believe it's necessary. I've read somewhere that it has driven the cost of gasoline up about 50 cents a gallon and causes unnecessary mechanical problems.

I used to use the red Stabil but now have switched to the Stabil Marine blue formula which is supposed to treat ethanol. So far no problems but then I never had any problems using the red Stabil either
