Have you ever tried to separate the ethanol from the gasoline ?

I haven't , as I've usually had pure gas available in different parts of the country .

If I have to spend much time in a place that has only ethanol fuels , I'll give separation a good shot .

I've spent too much time and effort cleaning the yellowish crud out of different carbs . One carb bowl has been partially 'eaten' due to ethanol . It's still viable , but it's enough to convince me to be careful of what fuels I run in my bikes .

Here's a link to a separation test :
