We just got ethanol free fuel in town a few months ago. It is 91 octane not true high test but w/o ethanol it is the best. I have spent soo much time treating fuel for my 4 strokes that do not get used much
I have used the new fuel all winter in the snow blower it runs like a new machine. Folks just do not understand the value of fuel that does not require carb rebuilds every few years not to mention fuel lines. I do still treat all my fuel with Sta-bil. Years ago my Dad was on a decline and not up to par, and always said I will be going fishing after I left
He never went without me after that, and I dealt with bad gas that one trip. After that I would treat the gas with Sta-bil and fog the engine on my terms, never another failure. We did fish for a few years after I took over, thank God. Remember that boat sat out in the Florida sun for 365 days a year with only a canvas cover. When you base a 2 week a year vacation in Florida, it is key your boat motor always works when you show up, as mine/Dads did. Dad is gone but that motor still works like a jem today. Dad did not have to deal with the crap gas we all deal with today.
I still miss him after writing this, it has been 10 years Wow time flies buy
