Thanks Rigid1 , me having lived out in your area for a couple of years (Phoenix N.Y.) I feel with the deep cold you would have a major ethanol separation issue there. I will check out the site to see if I can buy it local. Wondering if I can even buy ethanol free fuel here in N.H. I remember when I moved to CNY my truck ran like crap! N.Y. already have ethanol then 03'.

B3C has modified its ethanol shield product with a new additive called CCT (cylinder cooling technology) non-ethanol fuel in an engine is burning at 409deg, ethanol fuel is burning at 458deg because of the alcohol content, by adding ethanol shield with CCT they got it back down to 409deg.. good for all you 2stroke guys that are melting your engines..

Alcohol should burn cooler than gasoline. You have to make heat to make Horsepower.

Ethanol burns much cooler than 100% Gasolinehit's one reason you need bigger jets.ttp://www.weedcenter.org/mrwc/cig/documents/Heating%20Value%20of%2020%20CommonFuels.pdf

I don't believe it burns hotter, it's why fuel mileage suffers with Ethanol mixed fuels, you need to burn more of it to go the same distance, it purduces less energy per gallon. I used to run alcohol carbs many years ago, the jets were much larger than carbs set up for straight gasoline.

well i talked to my buddy that is a bit more knowledgeable on this topic.. and it looks like we are both right in a way.. the increased temp in a 2stroke cylinder is due to the ethanol in the fuel, but not because of the temp it burn at (you are 100% correct) but the fact that it does not allow good lubrication of the cylinder creating more friction,..we all know by rubbing our hands together that friction creates heat. just below a guy has some pics of his piston.. the center doesnt look to bad but the sides.. burned bad.. thanks for your help xcr!!!

im on my 3rd season of using the B3C products and have really found them to work as they claimed and am completely satisfied..
