Gas with alcohol

I have an outboard which I seldom use. When I exchanged the gas, a year old, I had leaks in the relatively recent hose and squeeze bulb. The culprit appears to be using gas with alcohol. If you run your engine frequently and the fuel goes thru it's apparently not a problem. Only when the gas sits for a long while.
