Tip

  • check Ethanol is derived from plants such as corn, wheat, barley and sugarcane, and is one of the fastest growing alternative fuels. For most newer engines, ethanol gas will not affect the performance of the motor. Some smaller, older engines with diaphragm pumper carburetors may have complications. If you are unsure if your engine would operate better with ethanol-free gas, check with your local mechanic.
