    I doubt ethanol is causing you problems unless the percentage is out of wack. I would be more afraid of buying from pump out back.

    Agreed. I don't think ethanol would cause this problem. I was just trying use non-ethanol to prevent long term problems down the road and suspect that I may have gotten some bad gas since it appears the fuel filter clogged so soon. I had some gas left in a can from that place and I poured it into a glass jar today and looked at it. It appears good and clean. I mixed up a gallon of two stroke with it, put it in my saw and had no problems so I don't know......:confused:

    could have been a defective filter.
