Trusting Your Fuel

Do you trust that your non ethanol gasoline is really non ethanol?  While you are at it.  What do you think of the continued planned expansion of E-15

I have no way of knowing if the non-ethanol fuel I purchase is legit. Fortunately however, I have not had any issues with the non-ethanol fuel I buy.
As far as the E15. Boat and small engines are going to be REALLY effected when this newer blend of ethanol is introduced.

The majority of my fuel comes from one location and the owner tests his fuel himself so, I'm pretty confident in most of the fuel I burn. I don't have as much confidence in the fuel I buy from marinas and stations when I'm traveling.

It's easy enough to test, might be interesting to test some of the stuff before I buy when traveling but a five minute test takes a lot longer than 5 minutes.

If you really want to test it, put some into a Glass Jar and let it sit.

Water will form on the Top.

Gas in the Middle.

Ethanol on the bottom.


Had a Marine Mechanic show me that years ago. It was amazing how the Ethanol was a black/brown stringy looking stuff.


As to my gas I always buy it at the same station and so far I have had no issues since I started running it in all my Outboards and ALL my Lawn Care Equipment.

I dont take a chance. Yamaha Ring Free only takes 1 ounce per ten gallons. Try it and see what comes out the exaust. Same on mowers, etc.

I don't trust fuel at all. Not even the non ethanol stuff.

I sold my jon boat recently after numerous issues with it. My coworker that bought it worked on it to get it running and found the fuel line from the bulb to the motor was corroded and crap was going into the fuel.
I had used nothing but non-ethanol in that gas tank and fuel line and even added Star Tron just in case.
This was a 2 year old fuel line.

Not sure if the gas did it or the heat of South Florida or a combo of both. Either way, I would stay away from the Attwood brand Fuel Line Kit they sell at Walmart.
