Ethanol is killing our small engines (chainsaws, weedeaters, lawnmowers, etc). Here is a link that has the gas stations for the US and you can look up your area to find gas stations with 100% gasoline.

IF you think thats bad, try your motor oil. Motor oil is a coolant not a lubricant. The lubricant is what they added to the oil. Well the guberment decided to force them to remove the lubricant. The reason is this. most cars today have roller lifters and rockers in the engine. They dont need the lubricants that the older vehicles do. so in a lowhanded attempt to remove the older vehicles from the roads, they banned the lubricants from motor oil. What happens is that without them, your older engines will wear out 75% faster than with lubrication.

So when you change the oil, make sure to go find a bottle of the lubricants that used to be in your oil. should be in the parts store where you get your oil.

It's the same with Ethanol, years ago when it was produced in the back yard you could run an engine better and longer than on gas, now with all the stuff they make the ethanol producers do to it, it's crappy fuel.
