If you're going to thread-shit try not to get it all over yourself like this when you do.

My 1973 R75/5's fuel system will basically dissolve if forced to use ethanol laced gas over time (especially if it sits in the system). There are aftermarket ethanol-tolerant floats for the Bing carbs, but the consensus is they don't work very well. My older log splitter and garden tractor are also pre-ethanol and they tend to sit for long periods.

I don't bother with my post-ethanol bikes with fuel systems designed to tolerate the stuff.

+1 on the Pure Gas app.

I filled my cans today at the Arletta Store in the Gig Harbor area. It has ethanol-free in both 87 and 92 octane.

Now, for performance gains, maybe I should switch from helium to hydrogen in my tires..........

It makes it easier, but more exciting, looking for a slow leak.

Helium - "of the sun"
Hydrogen - "water-maker"

Sort of backwards, don't ya think?

Just saying, fun with words.
