I got no problems with mopeds on this garbage gas nowadays,

I keep my tanks filled year-round in the bikes don’t use stabilizer really or nothing but I do ride the bikes during the winter during good weather days

But outboards, yeah it damaged my 85 hp force/Chrysler outboard, fuel pump parts, carburetor parts gaskets, lines primer ball all that stuff basically the first season maybe 2nd season I used it in the late 90s.

I didn’t know there was no warning on pumps that The formulation of the gas in my county for my county that was sold at stations in my county dissolved rubber specially old rubber parts badly!

No Marina at small lake where I live so you have to bring your own gas, only gas station that was close was speedway not known for having to best grade of gas to begin with let alone with specific air pollution clean formulation gas that only a few counties in my state have to have to begin with.

There was many lawsuits that information wasn’t out in time stating that that type of gas wasn’t good to use an older vehicles until it was too late
