Non ethanol fuel
Hi everyone, first post here. I was recently in Tecumseh, MI on a construction job, when I noticed that a local gas station had an isolated pump labeled 89 octane NON-ETHANOL, for about a buck more than standard ethanol laden fuel of the 87 octane. Not being familiar with this fuel type, I asked the attendant what this was for. He replied that N.E. fuel was better for small engines, and that he himself had been using it for about 5 years in all of his small engine equipment, as well as his seasonal use toys. Further, that since he had started using the N.E. fuel, he no longer had to use fuel stabilizers for storage, nor had he had to take anything in to the shop for fuel related failures, which had previously been prevalent. I'm not sure how many stations nationwide carry this fuel type, but I'm certainly going to give it try!
