    I'll just keep buying this for $3.59-3.79 a gallon. Same for the boat too.

    Yah , Federal fuel law allows up to 5% ethanol without posting ... 6-14% must be labeled as 10% ethanol ... independent testing has revealed up to 20% !!! Ethanol coming from 10% pumps ... In a vehicle I can see using it .. In My ported saws ... nope ... also most guys don’t realize that the ethanol doesn’t likey the mix oil and doesn’t blend like “pure” gas or alkylate fuel ...

    Klotz oil's supposed to be friendly with all fuel types, even pure alcohol.

    Klotz makes a lot of different 2-stroke oils ! I have my preferred mix which performs fabulously at 50:1

    Yep my Klotz KL200 stays mixed with ethanol. I checked that with their tech after I had quit the racing days.
    Never had to worry about separation back then before I could get non ethanol.

    Some of their others do and some dont. I found the original the only one I would run.

    All the NOCO gas stations around me have ethanol free premium, 91 I think.

    Wish that Alkylate stuff was available.

    Be happy, you could be paying 1.00 more per gallon for CA ethanol laced fuel...
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Very happy to pay that.
    Just got back from getting more for boat tomorrow, 3.59 for e-free 90.
    Heck 93 E10 was 3.09.

    Figure for 5gal e-free mix with 16oz oil. +/- $20-$25 for 5 gal of mix 40:1 depending on which oil used.

    We pay $14.66 for Alkylate.
    Last year we went through 750 gallons of it.


    Fuel prices are really high in Europe.
    One reason why you don't see many American cars here.

    I use aspen in my little Echo, seems to help with my afternoon headaches, or maybe no booze after 9pm is the secret!

    I often look at Yankee pickups, not unreasonably priced, but repairs, spares and after sales stuff puts me off.

    They are cool though.
    Im condescending, that means I talk down to people.
