Another example of the unintended consequence of adding ethanol to
gasoline. I went through it with my snow thrower a couple of years ago.

funny how everyone (who is not in the know) wants to blame every little
small engine problem on ethanol.

What's not to like? Ethanol causes infidelity, divorces, bar
fights, impotence, violent rages, DWI confictions,
unemployment, and birth defects in children. It's as
dangerous as dihydrogen monoxide.

Makes plenty of sense if part is plastic and warped by the higher
solvent properties of ethanol in gas. I remember when ethanol was
mandated in all stations around here and they had to close down for
several days to clean out their tanks. Otherwise residues in the tanks
would have been dissolved by the ethanol containing gas and ended up
clogging car engines.

Funny Stormy, real funny. That's an excerpt from a Lunesta commercial.

I have no idea what a Lunesta commercial is. Maybe I heard
it in my sleep. and the memory surfaced?

My sense is that ethanol is a loser. Has to be planted,
harvested, and then distilled. Uses more energy than it
delivers. Just my guess.
