corn juice only holds up for about 6 months then ruins the gas (unless you separate it)

add some water and watch the corn juice sink to the bottom, (use 10% water then extract your 65%-70% of pure un-molested gas (that will store for a year to a year and a half) leaving the 10% water and "15%" (really 20-25%) corn juice

I started my snowblower yesterday for the first time in over a year and it came right on. Seems whatever's in that fuel is still volatile enough to ignite.

Today I saw E85 selling at one station for $1.11. Not that I'd put it in anything I own.

It shows $2.64 average in LA, but I'm not going to get Go Jo gas from a 7-11. Shell or Mobil is about $2.65 to $3.00, closer to $3.00 for regular usually. Good gas is the best maintenance you can do for your vehicle, and CA's is processed real clean: but you pay for it Go Jo gas in CA is double the national average.

these days gas is gas...when the tankers pull up to be filled..the same gas is piped in..just different additives for the different brands...unless you live in Oregon (I do) your gas is inspected...the era of cheapie gas being sub-par gas is gone..unless you live in Oregon where it's not inspected...I personally try and buy corn juice free gas when ever I can...I ride 8 miles from my house to get it too...
