Hi, I've been using isopropyl dri-gas for years in the winter. But now that 10% ethanol (which seems to absorb water) is a fact of life around here, I'm wondering if the dri-gas is still a good idea. Opinions from the experts? Thanks, Steve

do your math. compare 10% to what you have been adding to a tankful in dry-gas. most likely, it is a weak solution of isopropyl.

here's food for thought:

Some states require a 10-15% ethanol solution be sold at refueling stations.
Most current gasoline-powered automobiles can safely run up to a 15% ethanol solution without any modification. However, at 20% or above older vehicles may require replacing the fuel lines to prevent degradation and rupture, and the electric fuel pump may need modification to prevent ethanol "dry rot". There is no point in adding dry gas to fuel that already contains a significant percentage of ethanol, since ethanol is an alcohol.
