After reading something about a ethanol testing device over on dootalk, I had my local Briggs&Stratton dealer order me a couple. Its a small glass test tube with a screw on cap, about 2oz in size. It has lines and specific measurements on the side. You fill the tube to the water line, then fill the rest of the way to the neck with gasoline. Shake and wait 5 minutes, the separation is clearly visible and the markings on the side of the tube indicate what % of ethanol is in the gas.


Briggs & Stratton part # 795161.

It cost me $7.50 each. (I bought 2)

Here is a link (for reference) I found to a place that sells them. Any Briggs & Stratton dealer can get them for you.

Good idea to check your gas for to much ethenol! I'm wondering if there is such a tester for bad gas(old gas)! I went out of my way to put non ethenol gas in my sled the last two seasons and have had nothing but problems! I think this coming season its getting whatever is fresh.

Works fine for me. Unfortunatly, we don't always have a choice to buy non-ethanol contaminated fuel here.

Thats maybe what you think now! Until you start having crank seals go to hell on you when you are 20 to 100 miles from home on your sled and the motor is seized up. cause the ethanol dried out your seals!!
