man, don't go by what a lawyer says!! they will sue you or me or anybody over anything, just to make money, they don't care about us, just about money, wake up!! we need to get the facts about ethanol from our public officials, i know, laugh, laugh!! somebody needs to make a fact sheet on the pros and cons of ethanol blended fuel! who do you believe, i ain't got a clue!! we have to make up our own mines, each one of us, we just have to do what we think is best for ourselves. if you have any questions, call the la. department of agriculture, they know about ethanol??? can you take their word or not, don't know that either!! i guess the best thing is to talk to your dealer, and see what he and the outboard motor industry says about ethanol in your outboard motor?? again ain't sure again!! remember, and i have been thru this before, when you talk to an expert, you think they are giving you facts, but many times they are just giving you their opinion, thats a big part of the problem, opinions and not the real truth!! OH! AND BIGJIM, i agree with you whole heartedly, but that will never happen, sorry to say!!!!!!!! some people, would call that a union, and most of the country hates unions!!
