Re: [DML] Ethanol in Gasoline

The DeLorean runs fine on a 10% ethonal mix but I wouldn't recomend storing 
the car for long periods with it in the tank. There is the possibility of 
the alcohol and gas seperating over time and that could cause problems. I'd 
suggest using a fuel stabilizer for even a few weeks of storage. In 
Minnesota 10% ethonal is mandated but there is a provision for stations to 
carry, at their discretion,  premium non-ethonal fuel for collector cars and 
small engines. In driving around the country I've had to fill with ethonal 
mixed gas many times with no ill effects with the exception of slightly 
poorer gas milage. Ethonal is less efficient than gas and burns a bit slower 
so in addition to lesser miles per gallon the octane level is also raised.
