Same test with 91 octane non-ethanol(unleaded gas) sitting
for the same 3 week test, re-stilled got him no slime
but just a tad yellow and very very faint varnish smell.
I know what I'll be putting in all my engines.
Its the additive, not the ethanol. Try a test with an additive and non ethanol gas and see what you get, and ethanol gas alone with no additive. Also make sure it is only 10% ethanol for each test, not 17%.
