:lol:

I never drank scotch because I heard that for every bottle that's imported, the Kennedy's get cash off it. Don't know how true that is, but I'll be damned if I take that chance! ;)

Kennedy's suck!! :mad:

Yep, Stihl does NOT want ethanol in their engines. They know the destructive outcome already.

STA-BIL just came out with a new version just for ethanol. Yes, the marine-grade does work too as it contains dry-gas, but I think the new version is just for ethanol.

The need for dry gas is eliminated when using gasoline with ethanol added. They are both alcohol and mix with water.

I hear tell the local airport sells gas with no alcohol. $7is a gallon, but I'm thinking of checking into it for all my small engines.

Down here the airports won't sell to you - I tried that one in Warwick, NY (little airport). In Florida some of the remote marinas sell gas without ethanol and I jokingly said to one at Astor, Fl - I would like to fill the car.They said - if you can get the car onto the jetty. Knowing Maine where anything goes......

BTW, you know it is apparently illegal for road use.

Well, perhaps tomorrow I'll make a phone call. They used to sell to anyone, but I have not purchased from them in 6 or 8 years. Maybe things have changed. Why would it be illegal? It's still lead free.

I think it would be perfectly legal for your small engines. For on-road use in your car, it's a question of the taxes taxes taxes. Besides, you probably don't want to pay $7 per gallon for your car any sooner than you have to. I believe farms can buy gas for off-road equipment that doesn't have all the highway taxes included. The old farmer across the street from me, now ten years dead, had a big red gas tank by his equipment shed with an Agway sign on it. He confided to me once that it worked pretty well in his car, too.
:idea: Wonder if anybody would be suspicious if my 21-inch walk-behind mower was using 20 gallons a week? :|

I have a 160 Gal gas tank on a small tower, my neighbor has one for diesel, I don`t know if it`s just the local oil Co. or all of them that put such a high delivery fee that the cost just about comes out the same. They are going to get you one way or the other, I offered my tank to an Ohio farmer for free & he said it`s cheaper for him to drive into town & load up his 5Gal cans than to get it delivered to him.
