Default Ethanol in Gas........??????

BlankWill there be a negative effect on Ethanol w/Unleaded Gas on the Honda
engines in the long term?? I have my suspicions that there could be some
minor effect in the of performance & moisture build-up!!

Any one w/ thoughts on this topic???

Ethanol in excess of roughly 10% is bad for seals and tubes in the
fuel system (well, rubber & plastic ones). This has been a major
complaint by those opposing the proposed mandates to increase the
percentage. The E85 capable vehicles (both of them) have different
materials.
