By Ray - Posted on 25 May 2010

Here is a ton of information on using ethanol in Marine engines. It is worth the read but to summarize for you

(1) Avoid using it if you can.
(2) Keep your gas fresh (less than 3 weeks old)

Ray, in Columbus area there are fewer and fewer places to get non-ethenal fuel. Does anyone know if stations are required to advise if fuel has ethanel?

You have to have stickers on pumps that either say "up to 10% ethanol or 10% ethanol". It's a state law.

The Shell on North 45 has non ethanol fuel. I think under the new law stations are no longer required to advertise the fact their fuel has ethanol.

If you have to use it, add the marine Sta-bil in with it, (not the red the blue)
