I really do not like ethanol in the gas. I don't personally see any benefit. It doesn't burn as efficiently and if you don't run an engine for a while it starts to make a crystallized buildup in the carb (of small engines anyway..). I don't know if it is mold or what. I just wish the government would have stayed out of the whole thing.

They recommend using Sta-Bil gas treatment and extender in all engines using Ethanol. It will kill a boat engine and all the components prematurely without it. I say get rid of the crap, or use it only in lawn mowers if necessary.

This crap has already had me replace my carb on my rider. Ethanol = Sugar Alcohol
Sugar = Sticky
(I learned this as a child and then again as a father)
No automotive experience necessary!

I actually have started using sta-bil in my gas for all my small engine stuff. I have already rebuilt ATV carburetors like 3 or four times before I started using the Sta-Bil. I don't like Ethanol. It's stupid.

Many choose to turn a blind eye to the creeping loss of freedom but the old adage prevails, "don't let the camel get his head into the tent!" Some thought has been given to water meters on private wells and some states are making collection of rainwater illegal.

I expect to see all babies with a chip implanted in a few years. For safety reasons only, of course. (want to buy a bridge?)

I actually like that idea. Connect your credit card information, and you could just wave your arm to make a purchase, and it would completely eliminate all fraud associated with welfare, etc. Just be careful to watch out for crooks with an extra arm in a bag!

I don't like it. The government would know your whereabouts at all times.
