    Try running non-ethanol gas!

    I was dead empty with the dash light on so for giggles I filled my tank with Mobil 89 non-ethanol fuel. Iíd run regular 89 once or twice & never noticed a difference, but Iím not gonna lie I can definitely tell that non-ethanol gave me way more pep & even a little more engine growl. Give it a shot!

    Dude I had a 2010 and wish I had known. She was a dog and this may have helped me have a bit more fun.

    i doubt it. Ethanol is a corn based additive the government mandated we add. Sell more corn, burn less gasoline. Iím pretty sure it doesnít burn clean and thatís why thereís so many detergents in gas now. Iím on my second tank getting 17.x average mpg city driving in a stock Sahara. Iíve been mashing it because the engines way more fun. One tank wonít kill you. Run it down & try it.

    The biggest issue with non-ethanol is age. A lot, and I mean most stations canít sell non-ethanol fast enough to keep it fresh.
    Even living next to a lake. we have big issues with gas being old at the pump.

    I run ethanol free gas in everything. There is so much demand the one local station that carries it is often out.

    Ethanol absorbs moisture from the air; not good for things like lawnmowers and snowblowers, that go a long time between fill-ups!

    Run non ethanol in everything especially in motors that sit for extended periods of time. Learned my lesson with a brand new Honda mower. I forgot to drain the line on winter in it and trashed the carb. Now I run it in my Jeep, Harley and things like chain saws, weed whackers etc.
    I know the Harley is getting better fuel mileage with it.
