    This was a good article in BBC with pictures of what ethanol in your gas can do to your fuel lines.

    There is a fairly simple test you can do to check your gas for ethanol. Here are some pictures of a test that I did. In the first picture I filled the bottle to the white line with water, I added red food coloring to make it easier to see. Next I added 5 inches of gas and shook it. The ethanol separates from the gas and mixes with the water. In the second picture you can see that the water level raised about 1/2 inch which is 10% of the 5 inches of gas.
