    Well, there are a few stations around here that sell 100% gas, non-ethanol blend. Best route in my opinion, however I am a little suspect of some of the stations claiming it, and not truly selling it..

    I hear you brother. You can always tell the ones running ethanol too, cause water always pouring out the tail pipe!!!

    Speaking of water,,, After we got the Carb back on the 450, it did give us some grief starting...so we check the gas.. Guess what was in it... WATER... Go figure?
