>> Ethanol at 10% has ruined all my small engines on my yard equipment &etc

Wow. I feel like you’ve been looking over my shoulder or something. This has been my small engine experience as well, right down to the eight dollar a quart “moto-mix”! Thanks for the marine fuel tip though. I wonder if aviation gas is similarly free of ethanol.

>> It is pure insanity.

Yep. At least my truck and farm equipment are all diesel; even so, I’ve been seeing “10% bio-diesel” stickers on some fuel pumps, Wal-Mart’s for example, so that damned green revolution even infecting diesel. Biodiesel is hard on certain rubber components too. At least biodiesel’s lubricity is better than the typical ultra-low-sulfur diesel you buy at the pump, so you get *some* benefit from it.

I buy 100ll avgas for my yard equipment and my R/C plane engines. I get it at the local airport. They have a 5 gal. minimum purchase which is no big deal for me.

Avgas is 120 octane leaded gasoline without alcohol.

It's not legal for them to sell it to you in a can, only pumped into your aircraft tank.

If you know someone with an airplane you might be able to get them to drain some out for you!
