Though, the ethanol is an issue for small engines, it's the additives being put into gasoline that is forming the deposits that is screwing up carburetors. I've been putting Seafoam in my carbureted, 4-stroke stuff and haven't had a problem with them, since. Maybe, I need to try that with my 2-stroke stuff, too.
