I'm in the states (ohio) and there are 2 stations within a fairly close drive from my house that advertise ethanol free gas. It costs more than ethanol fuel though.
Finally, there is the myth that oxygenates in the fuel cause it to break down and go bad faster. This is silly. It's inarguable that modern gas breaks down surprisingly quickly, much faster than it used to. However, as with so many things, the Internet "experts" have got this one backward too. It's not the oxygenates that make the fuel break down faster but rather the removal of the aromatics (benzene, toluene and xylene) that were common in gasoline fifty years ago that result in our fuel's short storage life. The aromatics are no longer there to preserve it. That's right. It's not what's in the gas but what's not in it that is the problem, when it comes to fuel deterioration.
- Mike Nixon ethanol: as bad as all that? www.motorcycleproject.comThose who perpetuate the "ethanol myth" don't understand the technology, don't know the history, and aren't aware of the forces at work in the powersports industry. It is not true that today's oxygenated fuels are demonstrably harmful to either carburetor durability or carburetor function. Good fuels and good people are being unjustly maligned due to this nonsense. It's time this myth was busted and reason was brought to bear.
And for that I am extremely grateful. Actually talked with the landlord yesterday and he sound amenable to letting us set up a canvas 10x12 come the spring. It wouldn't be perfect but at least I'll have a workbench.At least you have a sheltered place to put it up for winter.
This was my fallback plan if needed. My concern however was that I wouldn't get enough out. It also sounded like draining and removing the tank was a fairly straightforward endeavor and I figured I should probably know how to do it. At the very least, the experience would get me more comfortable with working on the bike and, thanks to all the help from folks on this forum, it did.they sell a siphon at Home Depot that you can suck the gas out with. You can get 98% of the gas out with little problem,
