Well im not A.K.A gas jockey I actualy fix petroleum equipment. Some days though it would be nice to be the guy who sits behind the counter pushing buttons in a air conditioned store instead of being the guy out side pulling a inground turbine motor out of a sump on a 35c day.

I worked at a FULL SERVE Esso in Victoria, not behind some cushy counter...

Now I am a HD mechanic working for CMBC.

Yeah but Husky has ethanol shit in their gas to bump up the octane rating. As previously stated, octane does nothing for performance on a motor that has be tuned to run 87. That ethanol fucks with the fuel system as well. It dries out the rubber fuel lines, as well as all the o-rings. I'll only fill up there if I am about to run out of gas. Besides that, it is never touching my tank.

Go look as some of the cars in the Midwest that run on the E85 shit. After 5 years of that, things start falling apart. That is why it, among other reasons, it hasn't exploded.

Well by 2010 you will have no choice to have ethanol in your fuel, cause every gas station in B.C. will have it in there fuel Petrocan just started using it and others have been using it in there fuel for quite some time now.

I thought farm/boat gas is just super premium or whatever with dye in it, and that its cheaper because it doesn't have the road tax on it?
When i was at the gas depot in winfield there was a tanker truck filling tanks and he said they just fill the farm/boat gas with the super prem and then add dye to the tank after its filled up.
I think that has to be true because i know quite a few guys from the local drag track run it, and few of them(my father) are running 250hp nitrous shots with farm gas.
