Input from Tuono V4/ RSV4R Owners

I wanted to know if you have one, if you have experienced any tank spread from using gas with ethanol? I know it happens to some people, I just don't know how prevalent it is. Basically, just looking for first hand experience with the issue good or bad. I'm not too big on having to use additives with every tank of gas. I've read Star Tron and Stabil, have not been full proof either. That being said, I haven't done any research on the K100 that Ducati recommended using. I've considered just performing a Caswell treatment to the tank, but once again I've read issues with that too.

If Acerbis makes the tank it will swell. Friend's RSVR tank swelled although I never had problems with my Gen 2 Tuono which had the same tank. My Husqvarna has an Acerbis tank and it swelled enough to start leaking where the fuel pump is mounted.
