I have 3 stations in town that have non-ethanol fuel. I run it in my vehicles all the time. It took about 3 months after switching for my truck to get its fuel economy back. I had lost about 4mpg on each tank using ethanol gas, not to mention it had a terrible hesitation problem.

There are additives out there now that are supposed to counteract the ethanol. I just say to stop putting that ethanol crap in the gas to begin with, its nothing but bad news. I've had to rebuild several carburetors the past few years that were just caked with the ethanol residue.

The EPA is out of control. A few years they also mandated those idiotic spring loaded fuel nozzles on gas cans that make it a PIA just to fill your lawnmower, ATV, etc. It really does nothing for safety unless you just want to pour gas all over your mower and you can take the nozzle off for that, LOL. These folks have never lived in the real world near as I can tell. Fortunately I still have several of the old 5 gal cans.

I am using the VP Racing can. Works pretty good. Some states or
off road areas might not allow them though.

I completely agree, not to mention those stupid plastic cans start leaking after a while. Gas is already $3+ a gallon last thing I want to do is spill it or have it leak all over the ground. I have 4 of the old metal Jeep Jerry Cans and use them all the time for filling up the lawn/garden equipment. I don't have an ATV or UTV anymore so don't have to worry about those at least.

The people who designed the new fuel cans have never used one in their whole life or they would know how useless they are. The one I have for my weed eater I punched a hole in the top in the back so it can vent instead of glugging as I'm trying to pour gas out of it. These new gas cans are garbage. They do absolutely nothing for the environment because by the time you get the thing to actually pour gas out of it, you have it all over the equipment, ground, yourself, etc. I've never had that problem with my old Jerry cans.
