I'm starting to get the feeling there's a definate possibility of a firm maybe that someone doesn't like ethanol. Just a guess on my part.
I'm with Jer on this one. My CI is right up there. As far as seasonal storage, it's hang it up, put it on a shelf, or put it in the corner of the garage until next season and things start right up. The exception would be my classic car. She gets parked behind the garage and I toss a tarp over it. I haven't bought non-oxy gas in years.
Disclaimer- I'm not a fan of ethanol either and I used to be middle management for many years in the industry.
