Having read accounts of the damage ethanol gasoline poses to older vehicles, and the approaching imposition of 15 percent gasohol on the consumer public, I am determined to avoid the stuff at every opportunity. My questions-- 1. On long trips, finding non-ethanol gasoline is difficult. How does mixing ethanol with non-ethanol gasoline affect the fuel system? (Escort 92 LX 1.9L SEFI and Escort 94 LX, 1.9L SEFI) 2 I plan to keep a spare (safety-approved) container) of non-ethanol gasoline in the garage, but that container must be "rinsed" of all prior ethanol gas. What is the best method? Pour a pint or so of non-ethanol gasoline into the (empty) container, seal the container, shake thoroughly, and dump the gas (safely)?
