  • 93 octane

    Will 93 octane non ethanol gas harm an engine designed for 50-55 octane?

          Come to Alaska. All of our gasoline is ethanol free. My modern specifies 92 octane, runs great on 87 octane without the alcohol. Model A likes it too.

            We can only get 93 octane no alcohol around here. About a dollar a gallon more than 87 octane ethanol. So which one to use?

                I have ethanol- free gas delivered to the house from our local co-op. $2.79 a gallon a couple of weeks ago. Spent over $2000 in the past several years fixing the damage caused by ethanol in my outboards and irrigation pumps.

                  "Spent over $2000 in the past several years fixing the damage caused by ethanol in my outboards and irrigation pumps."

                  Agree. So how can it be that various posters will tell us they have no trouble with gasahol.

                  If I had a choice here, I'd still use gasahol in my moderns and save the crapahol for the vintage cars. Having said that, when I am in Oklahoma, I can get crap-free, reasonable price, and the Silverado performs waay better and gets better mileage......

                    Count me in as one that has had no problems with gasahol in the A except for lower gas mileage. Not much rubber in the A to foul up.

                      Ethanol increase from 10% to 15%
                      by Tom Hicks
                      I have never had a problem with 10% ethanol in gasoline, but many Model T drivers claim it attracts moisture, gums up the carburetor, and is not good for the engine. I think the problem is that they do not drive enough so the gas stays in the tank for extended periods. Ethanol gas without a stabilizer will not stay good for long.

                      Now I see that we are going to 15% ethanol gas. I have...

                      Removing Ethanol from Gasoline
                      by Jeff/Illinois
                      This is one way to do it. I'd probably let it set a while longer before draining off the water/ethanol mix. I notice an old Caddie in his garage in the background. If you drive your car a lot probably not necessary. OR, you could get some Sunoco Racing Gas and put that in your tank before storing the car.

                      What type gas do you Recommend
                      by copgib
                      I am reading on different forums that gas with ethanol isnt good for the internals of the engine. If this is true, what do you use, Gas without ethanol like boat gas? Thanks Hugh

                      Ethanol Free Gas in New Jersey

                      Hey guys, this may be something of interest for those of you who live in New Jersey. Unfortunately, the octane levels are very high and I'm sure the prices are too!

                      by Dennis
                      Just what we need is a higher level of alcohol in our gas 15%. Now the problems should get worse.

                      by WayneT
                      I had a problem on a 94 degree day after driving in heavy traffic for some time and having to stop at several stop lights my "A" started cutting out and backfiring terribly. I nursed it along until it died, I then shut it off and opened both sides of the hood and let it sit 15 minutes then started it and it ran fine until stopped at a long stop light where it cut out and backfired again....

                      Warning for Storing or Carrying Spare Gas
                      by Tom Wesenberg
                      I always try to only buy the better gas without corn crap for use in my antique cars and small engines, but even the better gas has a very different vapor pressure than the good gas we bought in the 60's and 70's. Here is a 2 1/2 gallon plastic gas container, which is half full with 2 cycle mix for some of my small engines. Yesterday I had to move the jug to the shade, as I was afraid of getting too...
