My ATV manual says not to use alcohol in the fuel.

That's interesting. I have a 97 Polaris that's run fine on E10 since the day I bought it new.

I have a 95 Polaris 425. The alcohol evaporates and dissolves the $100 diaphragm in the carb. I can see alcohol bubbles in the fuel filter while it is running. If it gets too warm there are too many bubbles and the engine vapor locks and stops.
