The engine and fuel system problems associated with ethanol in fuel have been documented for years. Here's a great video highlighting the issue.
Right now, the EPA is considering an increase in the ethanol content of fuel from 10% to 15%. We can't help but think that will only create more problems for older cars, small gas engines, and boat owners.
Ethanol contributes to the clogging of filters, breakdown of rubber and plastic hoses, and accumulation of water in the fuel tank. All spell headaches and repair costs for the owners.
As of this writing the decision to increase ethanol content is due in September. While the folks in Washington sort it all out, we have products that are proven to remedy ethanol problems:
For cars and trucks: Mix-I-Go
For smaller engines like lawnmowers and motorcycles: Mix-I-Go See Update Below.
For boats: Marine MXO
Not only do these products fix your ethanol problems, they also improve the overall performance of your vehicle or equipment. They also reduce emissions.
