Re: "...Grant,...I wonder if using "Marine Formula" STA-BIL would be  
helpful.  This stuff is sold in boating areas since marine engines seem  
especially susceptible to the ethanol present in today's gasoline.  It's  bottle

Frank, you're are onto something: I have been using the STA-BIL  "Marine 
Formula," since it came out about a year ago, in all my Corvairs and my  
outboard motor. Previously, I was using the standard STA-BIL product, but  
occasionally still found the need to "blast" out the idle circuits  with carb 
cleaner and compressed air. Since switching to the STA-BIL  "Marine Formula" 
product (using 2-ounces to a tankful of fuel) I've not had to  "blast" the 
circuits, and have had no idle circuit difficulties. I  purchase the STA-BIL 
"Marine Formula" at Walmart for about $19/qt.  Starbrite also makes a fuel 
system treatment purportedly effective against  ethanol woes, but I've not yet 
seen it in the stores near me. _http://www.starbrite.com/index.html_
