Done. I've got enough ethanol problems as it is. I finally found a station within 10 miles that carries ethanol free and am filling up the toys there now. Thanks Allen

Done! how about we just remove it all, all it does is ruin small motors. Does it even help car/truck engines?

It screwed up every small engine I own. I should send all the receipts to Obama. BTW there is a store in Steinhatchee that is Ethanol free. It is all you can do to get in there to get gas. It stays stacked up. I try to get a gas can full there to run in my mower, atv, etc

The gal at the feed store in Inglis where I buy my corn told me it was fixin to go thru the roof. I guess we are doing a mass export of corn to Russia and China, therefore jacking it up for us

It costs a little more but not too much, maybe 5 cents. This place is out of the way and used mostly by the local farmers and nuseries and ain't exactly known for it's cheap gas. It is known for it's home made breakfast sandwiches and they can't make enough in the morning. :rockon

Guess I need to find out where that bulk place is that some fellers were talkin about earlier this month here on the forum. I got a couple big plastic drums I can take with me to fill em up and put it in holding till my feeders need it. BTW, I did find corn at BPS for 4.99/40# bag.

Never thought I'd say this but I'd be happy to pay $7 a bag for feed. I switched over to soybeans due to the bears and at $16 a bag it's getting old quick.
