Over the weekend, I replaced the carburetor diaphragm on my mower....ethanol killed it.
I haven’t gotten around to fixing my weed eater...I suspect ethanol killed it.
My rider is on carb gasket no. 3....very intricate gaskets that disintegrate...due to ethanol.
My car....the steel fuel line rusted from the inside out!!! I replaced with nickel/copper alloy line.
I live in Kansas...and I can’t avoid the stuff.
Lot of people might think I’m crazy, but I put nothing in my car except BP gas now. They have the disclaimers on the gas about “up to 10% ethanol” but my trouble light stays off much longer with it. Qtrip is death as far as I’m concerned. I talked to a Mechanical Engineer I work with and he told me Q has been caught multiple times with up to 20% in their mix.....anecdotal, for sure, but I know from experience when I started with BP a lot of that stopped.
Anything that needs a subsidy is BS. If it can’t survive on its own, it should die.
