The Effects of Ethanol Blend Gasoline
Believe it or not, not all gas is the same.
Despite having to meet physical and performance specifications such as octane rating, lubricating ability, energy value, and carbon residue, consumers are noticing a difference in gasoline from one station to another.
Ethanol plays a big role in this dilemma, causing fuel and performance issues for owners. Despite a few positive features (non-toxic, mixes well with gasoline, and it helps reduce emissions), consumers are looking for ethanol free gas stations.
The Damage Caused by Ethanol Blends
Not only do ethanol gasoline blends reduce your vehicles mileage, but it can effect your car, boat or small equipment engine.
Vehicle engines don't have this problem, but small engines can be damaged if the ethanol content in the fuel you use is too high. That’s one reason AAA has come out against the new 15% ethanol blends. They’re only supposed to be used in the newer engines.
- Water accumulation in the gas tank
- Deposit build-up
- Loss of power
- Rough running
- Fuel phase separation
If it’s hard for you to find ethanol-free gas, then it’s also hard to avoid the damage and negative effects that ethanol can cause to your engine and equipment.
