65 people before me,have read this. Thats a lot of missed sales,for a simple gas tank mod.
Although I lived in San Francisco for many years and love California, one of the greatest problems they have ever put on themselves was the installation of a full-time legislature. Besides feeling obligated to pass more laws than anyone needs it also makes certain that the rule making is in the hands of professional politicians and lobbyists not citizens. My father- in -law was a State Senator in a state where the legislature only met every other year and then for a limited amount of time. No office, no secretary, no minions kissing his as* etc. Although a small state they had the same issues that any large state has and got the work done in a short amount of time. It forces common sense and practicality. It also insures that the legislators are everyday working people and not professionals.
I refuse to live anywhere that has vehicle emission testing, or annual inspections. Just a matter of principal.
I was told at the inspection place I was illegal from the air cleaner down..
Gasoline has morphed into a chemically enriched alcohol.. I brought two different gas powered leaf blowers from home depot over the past 3 months, one was a midprice ryobi and the other a cheaper home depot brand model..After using one time and using the manufacturer 50-1 mix (mind u new gas ), they wouldn't start...
I think rather than paying $23.33 per gallon (plus shipping) I will buy a gallon of Coleman fuel for the $12/gallon I saw at the store.It is basically "white gasoline" and it will work in small gasoline engines.The last time I did this, the gas was for my chain saw so I poured some into my lawnmower and then added the 2 cycle oil to the rest that was still in the can.To help me identify this fuel and to keep me from using this pre-mix in my Coleman stove and lantern I painted the outside of the can with some black spray paint.It's still expensive but weighed against the cost of screwing up small 2 stroke engines with gasohol it is a cheap way to go.

I suppose about 5 of us on this forum remember Amoco White. It's all I would use in my cars AND bikes all through the '60s & '70s until it disappeared. I still remember the last Amoco station that closed up in my area. Amoco White helped maintain carbs & engines clean as a whistle inside unlike today's chemistry experiment, political scam, bullshit story gasolines.
