I no longer use AVgas on my scoot. The regular gas from Costco is working fine now.
I truly believe the sticky stuff on the carb I had before was due to the use of MMO ( Marvel Mystery Oil) with breather tube connected. I ran scoot with AV gas and crankcase breather detached ( by mistake), and I didn't get any sticky stuff. Changed engine oil to an oil with no MMO added and breather tube connected, and I didn't get sticky stuff.
I now have the crankcase breather tube covered with a filter and is vented to outside. The hole on the air filter box is blocked with a plug. Added 3oz of MMO to engine oil as of yesterday. The scoot should be good for a while.
I have an easy access to AVgas but it is way too expensive. Using AVgas defy the purpose of riding the scoot.
I don't know where I can get non-ethanol gas in WPB area.
