Alcohol should be consumed internally and not to be used in an internal combustion engine. Ethanol should be avoided in gasoline. LP conversion is the best way to go for something that sits between uses. Next best thing is pure gas and Stabil.

I guess I shouldn't go there, but I have a 35 year history, professionally and through experience. Ya'll are both outdated in your position, expanding a particular application to the entirety, or flat wrong. Don't know how to say it nicer, sorry.

Never run ethanol gas in anything but your automobile. Not even your lawnmower. Ask anyone in any Marina - most don't sell it. I had a brand new Mercury 2003 four stroke outboard on my Boston Whaler, I put that crap in it and it ran erratically until I cleaned the carbs and changed to non-ethanol. I run it in my motorcycles, lawn mower, weed eater, everything. I won't affect EFI engines as much but anything with a carb will have problems.

Hi, don't buy your gas at Joe's Dairy or any other cheap, no name gas stations. The cheap stuff will get you later.

Ethanol is not near as bad in systems that are sealed and have very little metal in them. Small engines don't fall into that category. Ethanol has caused me a lot of problems in motorcycle engines and gas tanks.

I buy at high volume sales gas stations. Those low use tanks can condense a LOT of water.

I am a believer in when shutting down any small equipment/engines to turn the fuel off while running and let the engine drain the carburetor bowl. As I am also a pilot, always keep your gas tanks, cans etc topped off as prevents condensation. Using this procedure, I have stored small engines with the same gas for literally years without having to do anything additional
