You are correct just use fuel without ethanol simple . These additives are for the most part a gimmick. Some work but most of the info on performance engines say not to run additives other than octane . Ethanol absorbs water and breaks down rubber it also leaves a deposit in the carb . If you run Good fuel and respectable oil remembering that fuel loses its effectiveness as soon as 7 days in a gerry can and this causes more problems than anything.

Re: Ethanol in Gasoline.

Pschulte is right, I am wrong. Not ALL premium is ethanol free. I must be going to the right places because everywhere I go the premium says "contains no ethanol". But the Petro Canada website says that it depends where they got their fuel whether it has ethanol or not so they don't say on the pump ethanol free. And like Matt says, ethanol is not good for rubber/plastic anywhere in the fuel system.
