You are correct on the quality of the gas ,here in Ga. we can buy 100% gas or 85 for newer cars the pure gas cost 70 cents more per gallon but it is the only way a small engine will stay running the E85 if it sits for a couple months the carb will stop up with a white powder and will not run if it does it is very poorly ,I have to run pure gas in all my vehicles with carbs, can run E85 in fuel injected engines I guess because of higher fuel pressures,
