I too have gone the route of Shell premium exclusivly this season. Other than avgas in a piped MVVS 80.
Tired of cupped diaphrams in my gas carbs. We will see how this plays out in the spring pre-flight inspections. I have faith, others nearby are beleivers through their own experiance.
Hope this helps,

Re: Ethanol in gas

Canadian Tire 91 and Ultramar 91 are ethanol free. Thats all I use in my boat, gas planes, and yard tools too!

Re: Ethanol in gas

Big changes in carb settings between 100 AV Gas and hi octain car gas. Use the leaded av gas in my Valach 4 stroke and sometimes switch it up with my other gas enginse.

Never have had a fuel isue after only using alcohol free gas. **Don't forget to put some of the gas from the pump first in the car to drain the hose, pump etc... from the last guy at the pump. Otherwise, the one gallon gerry can will be what the last guy pumped.

Re: Ethanol in gas

When automobile testing was first introduced in the province, the trick was to find a station that sold gas with ethanol in it. We would wait for the tank to be nearly empty, put 1/4 tank of ethanol mixed fuel in then get the car tested. The ethanol would lean the mixture due to the lower energy content and make it easier to pass the hydrocarbon test.
Lead, follow or get out of the way!
