Many gas-powered engines, including classic cars, motorcycles, ATVs, boats & personal watercraft, snowblowers, snowmobiles, chainsaws, lawn mowers and more - can experience adverse issues from ethanol-blended fuel (E10 gasoline). Because ethanol attracts and absorbs water, it can cause phase separation.
Phase separation occurs when the ethanol blended into the fuel absorbs enough water to separate from the gasoline and settle at the bottom of the tank. This water / ethanol mix will not burn and lowers the octane level of the gas resulting in decreased fuel efficiency, engine problems and lower performance.
In addition, for small engines that are used periodically and those who need to store gasoline for extended periods of time, the chemical properties of ethanol are destructive to rubber, fiberglass, plastic and other composite parts of the fuel system and engine. This may result in carburetor damage, clogging and / or plugging of fuel injectors and ignition failure.
If ethanol is so bad - why is it used?
Great question. Politics plain and simple. Iowa is the first state in the presidential caucas. Losing Iowa is a very bad sign for any presidential contender, therefore concessions must be made to the Iowans, and the most powerful group is the corn growers lobby. What better way to drive up prices than to force everyone to burn corn in their fuel and say it's for cleaner air? Have a look at the map below showing the concentration of corn production and you will see that Iowa is the epicenter.
Are you experiencing hard starting and operating difficulty? Lower gas mileage? Lack of acceleration? Stalling at low speeds? If you answered yes to these questions - you may be able to resolve your problems with ETHANOL FREE GASOLINE from Combined Energy Services. This will be SUPER unleaded, 91 octane with zero ethanol.
We are hoping to have ethanol free gasoline on-line 24/7 at our Monticello NY gasoline station located at 216 E. Broadway by spring of 2015
Bulk Deliveries: We'll have ethanol free gasoline for distribution to cutomers' locations throughout the region via small bulk tank truck or tractor trailer deliveries by April 1st. Finally anyone that uses gasoline on-site will be able to get ethanol free gasoline such as; golf courses, marinas, go-kart tracks, motorcycle shops, landsapers, small engine repair shops and even homeowners that store their own gasoline for ATVs, snowmobiles, etc...
