I am a firm believer in Ethanol-Free ..... been using it in my boat for a few years, have been told to use it by a couple of dependable mechanics !!!

The flip side - I've been using E10 in our boat for 3 years hand have not had a single problem with it. I hope the trend continues!

Default Local stations

The gas station convenient to me has the pump set sideways and you must pay inside first. The signage is very visible as seen in this photo.

I received TWO complements on my boat while filling up this time, the cashier and another customer filling up next to me. I'll get a compliment at the ramp every now and then but two in one day....minutes apart?.... Maxum

Fuel Injected boats seem to do much better with E10, than carb's. If you use your boat frequently and burn through your fuel regularly, this seems to also reduce issues.

GeorgeB. I took a look at the pic, but I'm not clear on what the problem or complaint is from either the folks at the gas station or the boat ramp.

I receive complements not complaints.
