Motorcycles and Ethanol (E10) - The Shocking Truth
Originally published April 24, 2017
When you read or watch anti-ethanol stories on the net you ultimately find stories about how E10 has destroyed someone's motorcycle engine. I've had a
number of run-ins with guys like this.
To hear them tell it, if you use E10 this is what happens:
"The ethanol starts going bad in one month."
"The ethanol attracts water that sinks to the bottom of the tank and stops
the engine from starting."
"The ethanol caused my hoses and connectors to rot, and the ethanolgasoline leaked out of the bike onto the garage floor."
"The ethanol hardened into a hard lacquer and froze the cylinders."
