    I have been reading articles by Dan Shell from the panel of the Power Equipment Trade site. If any of your have read the January/February 2010 article, please talk about your thoughts in comparison to our vehicles, machines and outboard motors.

    Its coming but the big problem is the way they mix it around home. It aint mixed at the Refinery. The bulk plant mixes it themselves. And it could be as high as 30%. Have some tested. They get a load of gas then put the alky in the transport, they have baffles to keep from moving around while transporting. Just how good do you think it mixes.

    Aircraft Spruce sells a fuel tester for about 6 dollars. It will give the precentage of ethanol in fuel.
