ETHANOL, and the imported from China Ambrosia beetle. The beetle is attracted to the ethanol in the gasoline aroma, thinking they are chewing their way into a tree they bore their way into fuel lines and even the plastic fuel tanks. They were first spotted in Mississippi in 1999 spreading east they hit oi-HI-o in 2011. If you notice fuel leakage check for a hole 5/64ths in diameter that's the bore site for the nest.

So is there a handy 5/64” plug gauge available from Honda to precisely check that the culprit is indeed the work of the Chinese Ambrosia Beetle? Are Chinese Ambrosia Beetle Fuel Line Repellant Sprays available, maybe there's a Crowdfunding Project somewhere producing Emergency 5/64” Fuel Line and Tank Repair Kits with precision made plugs for roadside repairs. Don't give us half the story.

Just another good reason to get rid of Ethanol...... Biggest scam ever invented. Had it's reasons years ago but US. now the largest producer of oil no longer needed.

It take as much energy to produce Ethanol as it produces. It only has 60% the energy of gas and causes other issues. It's not a Green fuel in any way produces just as much bad stuff as gas.

I'm drinking a beer that's all it's good for.

BUGS the hell out of me........ Killer Bees, Fire Ants, ETC. Mother nature has a way of taking care of it all. Rant. Tire eating Ants I'll just run them over. Smile

A truck stop is being put in near here. The pumps have been at the location for a couple of years, but just diesel.

Regular gas was added this year and ta dah, 90 proof non-ethanol available as well. Great for all machines here on the farm.

That's great non-ethanol is hard to find in many areas. It's more expensive but delivers better fuel mileage. Great for winter storage no moisture being absorbed into tanks.

Many stations are starting to sell 88 octane stuff stay away it's E15 15% ethanol fuel. Pump should be labeled but who knows. SW not designed for it and many older cars either.
