Re: ethanol vs. non-ethanol gasoline

Ethanol does not mix very well with two cycle motor oil. It also leaves a powdery substance in the bottom of the bowl on your carburetor. Causing your motor to run in a lean condition at the mid and high-speed jet a two cycle engine when it runs lean on gas it runs lean on lubricating oil which will alternately cause some premature scoring of the cylinders and bearing failure.
Regular non ethanol gasoline is available at a lot of places in the Florida area. especially close to the waterfront.
