[DML] Re: What effect- Ethanol?

Running with up to 10% ethanol is kind of like pouring a lot of "Dry
Gas" into you tank. Used to be a popular winter addditive to do deal
with excess moisture. Problem is if there is no moisture in your tank
the stuff will pull it out of the air. When it gets to a high  enough
concentration it then separates out when the temperature changes. This
stuff is not too bad if you use it up and don't store the car with it
in the tank for extended periods of time (like over the winter). It
does probably age the rubber parts quicker, some are more susceptable
to damage like the pick-up hose and the pump boots where it is exposed
to the fuel AND the air. Just something we are going to have to get
used to, you can expect gasoline as we know it to continue to change
and not always for the better. As it gets more and more expensive you
will see all kinds of things put into it to "stretch" it.
