Ethanol

I'd like to add a comment about ethanol. My son has been employed in the marine industry for years and most of his repair work is fuel related. He advises using fuel additives specifically designed to protect engines from the potential corrosive effects of ethanol and is constantly checking for water in his own fuel. Any gasoline fueled equipment stored for long periods may be adversely impacted by ethanol.
