The Truth about Ethanol Fuel !

March 14th Rotary presentation featured Mark Hildebrand courtesy of Bob Holt (right) and Louis Muse (left) of Garrett's Marina. The introduction of ethanol is problematic if fuel is left standing for longer than 60 to 90 days. Fuel can separate into water and fuel due to ethanol's attraction to water and cause corrosion, cause poor combustion chamber performance and cause expensive damage. Valvtect meets a proposed industry fuel specification promoted by NNMA. Mark and Louis's recommendations - use non ethanol fuel, change fuel filters at least twice a year, use fuel stabilizers even for non-ethanol fuel.
