Quote: It also hardens the fuel lines and makes them brittle. If it is left in the carbs over a long period of time without running it will condensate water from the fuel and oxidize the inside of the carb and harden the rubber components inside the carb as well. Does not take long either. Run the motor at least once a month enough to clear the carbs with new fuel.
I had/have a few jetski's over the years. Replaced a bunch of carbs over the years because of this ethanol.
QFT My Tractor HATES HATES HATES ethanol gas. After taking apart the carb, and cleaning it 20 times I started cutting the fuel supply off, and letting it burn all the gas out of the bowl it could, then draining the bowl to remove ALL gas out of it.
