Good advice! I might expand that statement to any internal combustion engine you care about. Biggest problem I've been running into is that these ethanol blends get skunky faster than Bush Light.

I hear ya. New gas SUCKS. We work on these MG's here at the shop and they hate the new gas. It's good business though, as we're rebuilding a LOT of carbs. Easy on the Busch Light there Chad - when you're low and there's nothing else left, you better start being nice to me!

Figured that would get a response. I'm not too proud to drink Bush light! At least MGs don't have check engine lights that that turn on cause a misfire was detected 4 secs after start up but otherwise run fine..... so frustrating

I get better mpg when adding acetone when filling up. Just a few oz. per fill up got me better mpg.

John,

Seems to the there was a thread a while back about acetone, there is an issue with drying out gaskets and seals longterm. I dont recall if that was a fact, or a feeling, but something to look into.

On a fuel injected motor? Buddy of mine did extensive testing of that method on his hour drive to work everyday-could not see a difference. Carb I could see being fooled. Didn't mythbusters do an episode on this as well?

Yeah me too. The media is usually right on top of getting the facts out.
