Last time I checked, corn commodities were traded on the open market. What the government kicks in is LDP Loan Deficiency Payments.

Use SEAFOAM! That's what the Farmers use.

.
The VEETC subsidies are 51 cents a gallon, direct to ethanol producers. $7.6 billion this year. That's just the direct subsidy, not everything. Thirty years on the dole, ethanol has to go.

I too have heard from many that Startron is the best product. One dealer in Indianapolis I know virtually eliminated the problems when he started using it exclusively.

I have had mixed results with Startron. My 496 HO will not see ethanol again with a $1500.00 bill. Marina non ethanol is $4.00 per gallon. On the other hand I use startron in my carbed 2 stroke outboard with a fiberglass fuel tank and no problems. If you want to know more about ethanol problems, check this web site Fuel-testers.com. It has alot of information. Pay and smile!!!

Why are outboard injectors some much more a problem. Are they smaller? just wondering.

they sit for awhile, sometimes longggg whiles.... then get run twice as hard... 4 stroke Yammi's and HPDI's seem to be the worst victims..
