Right you are banjoe.

It's the antique livers that can't take it. My bad. Since I don't drink it, I don't have the concern.

Not by ethanol, but some other component of gasoline.

use at least mid-grade to get a higher octane. I also use RXP and have avoided problems.

stickyvalves - that's just silliness. It has to be a liver not made to handle ethanol.

mertieman, this whole topic states nothing. Have some fun if you like. Does your electric mower use E85 or premium?

My lawn mower burned up after I put ethanol in it. It used to be a great electric mower!

goldseeker - I've suspected for a long time that ethanol has been destroying my garden hoses and now I have proof. And the wife thought it was squirrels...

The original post is but one in a series of stupid posts that contain no data or make a point. :/

We've been running our mower on E10 for years without a problem and we get the Chicago emissions gas blend here too. Dad did start mixing a little Marvel Mystery Oil in the gas can several years ago too, seems to help.

Damaged from running it over? Or from the gas you used??

Well, if you hadn't have left it in the middle of the driveway you wouldn't have run over it with your pick-up truck!
