Re: Just wondering

I should have been more precise when speaking of "moisture". My understanding is that as the fuel sits in the tank over time ethanol separates from the rest of the fuel-sort of like what happens when a fuel storage tank isn't full and you get a frost line above the fuel such that when the frost melts you get "moisture" in the fuel line and potential frozen fuel lines. Maybe it is not a problem where ever you live. Also, if you get the ethanol fuel from a gas station that keeps fresh fuel-some place that pumps a lot of it-and you burn it regularly, maybe you have no issues with the ethanol part. I don't really know anything about ethanol except that since I stay away from it completely, I can remain safely ignorant-something my wife thinks I do regularly anyway!
