So this i am SURE has been a debate for years but I am curious to see what the "new" protocol is for gas. I am a new Gas MH owner and I am terrified to leave Gas in my coach this winter. I have a boat and witnessed the destruction of 2 Carbs that I had to have rebuilt back to back seasons. I have also been the unfortunate victim of plastic small engine carbs biting the dust. 30-45 min of running fuel doesn't seem to be enough to keep my from running into problems come April for my genny so what are folks doing in the Mid West and places north who may get snow so bad they cant get to run the genny in the winter? THEN if there is not enough panic about DEVIL GAS there is the talk of e15. Now my research says that E15 is approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for vehicles 2001 and newer but if my 2003 coach is running the same motor that was in the 2000 model year whats to say I wont run into issues? Then there is the issue of voiding warranties ... Use of these non-mentioned fuels and fuel additives does not necessarily void a vehicle warranty but lets face it, we drive MH for fun and vacation so I doubt seriously - any of us have enough cash on hand to fight a major manufacture in court if this becomes an issue? And even if we were all super rich and had Jetplanes its cheaper to just buy another on at that point. Let me stand and say the Hayes Clan is not sitting on that type of cash and I cant be the only one concerned. Not in all fairness I talked to a few service techs that work for Chrysler and they claim vehicle manufacturers may not deny a warranty claim based on use of a different fuel if that fuel did not contribute to the problem for which the warranty claim is made but Mercury did int he 90s when they started putting tracers in their oil claiming engine failure was due to people "NOT USING" proper oil. So, is my fear justifiable or am I overreacting?
