Wow, My 17 year old Cub Cadet lawn tractor must not have got the message on ethanol gas. I have used 10% ethanol gas in it since day one. It has the original carb, rubber fuel lines and plastic fuel tank. they are all in good shape. No deterioration what so ever.
This past summer I gave it a general clean up and took the carb off to have a look. The carb was clean as a pin with no build up of any kind. The thing runs perfect. It has an aluminum engine with overhead valves. I let it set over the winter months and it always starts up in the spring with out any problems.
Way too much hype on the net.
