Ethanol is evil. The first time I took my carbs apart, the intakes were coated with this yellow crap. I couldn't figure out what that stuff was. I eventually figured out with help from the board that it was my Polyamide-6 tanks, which were slowly dissolving from the prior owner using ethanol fuels in Florida. There are ongoing issues with 990 owners dealing with stopped up fuel filters, and I'm pretty certain that it's dissolved tanks from ethanol stopping up the filters.
