    I'm assuming you're directed at me. I Googled it and there's "allegedly" one about 20 miles from me (I've never heard of them), but I'd never bother driving that far to gas up. Ethanol-free pumps are few & far between. Doesn't matter, we use 10% here with no problems. Russ

    Didn't intend to be offensive. I own two cars from the 1960s, a Galaxie 500 & the Chevelle SS. For me, it's "Never use Ethanol again", even just 10%.
    If you've seen the picture of the cheese built up inside the carb, you wouldn't either. As S2H said, it's already corrosive on it's own. I'll attach it again:
