It is ment for 5% ethy. TO get the same power you need about 3% more or it will run lean. So AC puts in 3% more fuel across the map in ethy mode. Ethy is the future even if it will totaly wreck any under gound water supply if splilled.[/b]

You are mentioning 5%, In my manual it says that you are good up to 15% (or 10% can't remember) and fuel from Sunoco (others too I think) say that the fuel is mixed to a maximum of 10% (max legal limit for fuel mix). (I thought all fuel companies were mixing ethanol at 10% now but I was at an Esso station the other day and I could not find the disclaimer on the pump advising that the fuel contained ethonal)

Are we talking about the same thing here? or is there another ethanol mix I am not aware of??

I thought the Ethanol switch was for those times when you had no choice but to buy Ethanol gas (Green handle at the pump)

Don't worry about the Ethanol it won't hurt a bit. To plug or unplug will not make much of a difference. IF you don't want to run it that is fine. But remember when you pour in an bottle of iso or some other agent for water you have the same stuff. Also With ethanol you don't need to run any fuel conditioner. And for danno that posted a a few back it's metanol that is bad for ground watter.
