Who else is having problems with this new gas BS? Thanks george assbush!

My car, My bike, if I had a lawnmover im sure that too, everything is running like . I cant see the point of this %15 ethonol. This is me off so much, bush is ****ing all this up just for a little bit more money.
Ive heard of some people having to clean out their (car)tanks once a month, and find something close to the form of dog in there.

I just want normal gas! Is this just a ploy to make us all go "we want normal gas, we will pay your high prices" Because I really think it is, im so upset with all this bullshit. I just want to live a life w/o some douche trying to **** me over!

does anyone have any advice to curb this problem? I feel that empting gas tanks, replacing fuel delivery systems, and "mixing gas with something of higher octante" are cop out bandaids, and should not have to be done to have a normal working vehicle.

we have had 2 brand new (1hr) jet ski's come back to the shop with seperated fuel in the tanks. It seems the ethanol is seperating from the gasoline, and the engine will not trun right on ethanol alone. Don't ask me why this happens, but I've seen it A LOT lately. Joe

Times are changing and so is the world. Will flex fuel cars be commonplace in the future? Prolly..Maybe they will start getting smart and pumping out flex fuel cars exclusively. Gasoline wont last forever.

Typically a gas station should shut down their pumps for atleast 30 mins. after they get a load, for the ethanol to settle down. But I think no one is doing this, most likely the gas that jet ski owner bought came from a station that just got his load. My .2 cents to the topic.

If it sit's long enough it will separate, nothing anyone can do about it. Very unlikely that it was a gas stations fault since most will get a load of gas every couple of days. Buying gas from small mom and pop stations it's more likely to happen because they typically don't sell a lot and the gas has a chance to sit for long periods. Something to remember with ANYTHING that uses gas that may sit for weeks with out being used.

well then you 149 ridaz need to fill up somewhere other than the Texaco @105&149, b/c that's where the gas is coming from. just a heads up.

I don't know if my local stations have ethanol or not, but I've been wondering for the past week or 2 why my bike seems to run a little differently. Maybe this is to blame? Maybe not.

ethanol is a higher octane than gasoline... why are yall hating on it? ethanol is way better for your engine than gasoline.. its a little more expensive(a few cents) doesnt produce near the amount of emissions that gas does.. and it burns much cleaner.. yall are crazy.. give me pure ethanol... once krogers starts selling E85 ill be there daily...

Can someone explain for me just how Ethanol is supposed to be better for engines? I hear ppl say it's better for emissions and what not, but is it really better for the engine lifespan/performance?
