    I talked to a RV guy that said carburetors are the most concern from his experience with ethanol. But he says he is not supposed to say much. Hmm?

    Because ethanol gums up the works.
    Ain't always easy to stand up for what is right.

    I like to run STP carb cleaner through every now and then just to keep things from getting gunked up even with running non-ethenol fuel.

    We have ethanol free available. It used to cost more but regular gas prices increased and the clear stayed about the same.

    A few years ago my roommate had to get her catalytic converter replaced to pass DEQ emissions tests and the mechanic there said that the ethanol eats up the exhaust systems as well.

    OK I went through counseling and found additive free gas. Is it just me or does the generator seem to be running better?
