NonEthanol Gas

Ethanol gas has caused problems with our outboard small-boat engine, and lawn tools. Newer generations will probably accommodate for ethanol, but our garage is full of items that don't like ethanol. We use non ethanol gas in our generator also.

Here's a link to a website listing for non-ethanol gas stations:

On Ask This Old House the other day they were talking about caring for your lawn equipment, specifically those with small engines. They said gasoline with ethanol only has a six to eight week shelf life, so you should buy what you can use in that time for your small engines. They also recommend always using a stablizer and it wasn't just a regular stablizer. I don't recall the name, but it had two components to it. The type they had would bond with the water that ethanol introduces into the fuel and allow the engine to burn it, which would likely help prevent the performance issues you may have.
