    Snake oils perhaps, but have been using Star Tron past several years in sleds at each fill up and AOK so far.

    I agree too that just get rid of the Ethanal altogether. May be great for the farmers in raising corn for it's use (never mind the fact too that corn is being diverted from food use to gas use thus increase in food costs), but as AP said, it's benny's just are not cutting it AND cost of gas hasn't come down by it's use in it.

    Like one of the guys on Blue Collar Comedy said, "We need to fix the gas shortage. I know-let's make it out of FOOD".

    Fastrac, Stewarts, Byrne Dairy, and some Sunoco A-Plus have No Ethanol. I still run Star Tron all year round in my fuel injected and carbureted small engines.

    Iím not a fan of ethanol, but there are some positive aspects to it. Many of our snowmobile trails go across farmers fields. A lot of these fields are used to grow corn. A large amount of the corn that is harvested for grain is sent to the ethanol plant in Fulton. The higher demand for corn leads to higher prices for the farmers. This keeps the land in agricultural production. Itís much easier keeping a trail system open when it runs across farm land than it is to try and work with 100 little residential property owners.
    Farmers arenít getting rich off of ethanol, but it can make the difference between continuing to farm and selling out.

    Soybean fields are much smoother than corn. Many other crops than just corn. I have to say the land in many ares around here were rapped and clear cut to grow corn. Never seen anything like it. Makes for some nice open fields for trails tho.

    You canít grow soybeans continuously. Crops need to be rotated to break up disease cycles. We donít get the best weather in NY for harvesting soybeans either.

    Default Ethanol in your premium

    Not sure how many realize this, but at gas stations where there is just one fuel deliver hose for each pump and you select which grade of fuel you want, when you fill your tank or gas can with Premium "No Ethanol", you're getting 1.5 gallons of whatever the previous person pumped. I found out the hard way when I killed my chain saw. The power equipment service dealer said I had ethanol in the saw. I assured him I only use Premium No Ethanol. He asked if I bring two cans to the gas station, one to purge the ethanol out of the fuel line and a second can for the Premium fuel. His friend works on gas pumps and passed that tip along, he said not many people are aware of that.

    As far as additives and gas, I've switched over to VP Fuel for my small engines or for winterizing the wheeler and zero turn mower. It comes in 1 gal tin cans, you can get it for 4 strokes, 2 strokes mixed at 40:1 and for 50:1. Drain the fuel out of the equipment and refill with a small amount of VP Fuel. Start the engine and run til you smell sweet exhaust. At this point you're now protected for two years. This stuff does not gum up, turn to varnish, collect moisture or discolor. Come spring, my equipment has been starting right up. VP Fuel is sold at professional outdoor power equipment dealers and I see now that Tractor Supply is carrying it. Its about $15/1 gal can.

    Recently was out helping PBSC work on trails, I brought my chainsaw along. Since I was running the VP Fuel that day, I didn't have to worry about bringing a can of mixed gas or draining the gas out when done. The saw sure ran sweet smelling that day! Ive got VP Fuel in the Honda generator as well, no more worries about gas sitting in it going bad. I run it now on VP and its never started so easy after sitting.
