Reckon there's a reason Briggs and Stratton doesn't approve ethanol fuels in their engines and won't honor warranty problems caused by it??? Same goes for two-stroke small engines like weedeaters and chain saws. Stories about shorter engine life are rampant.

A friend of mine owned a Honda shop and if he prepped the small scooters and let them sit on the floor a week with ethanol gas in them they wouldn't hit a lick without a carburetor cleaning. The tiny passages within them would clog up with a gel-like goo. After he'd cleaned a few he wouldn't put a drop in them until the customer was ready to ride them home. This mirrors my experiences with my own small bikes.

The most ardent supporters of corn gas are farmers and people involved with it's production. Everyone else thinks it's terrible.
