PostSubject: Ethanol Removal   Thu Jul 07, 2016 11:10 am

One of the mad scientists over at the Goldwing forum makes his own ethanol free fuel with a very simple contraption one can cobble together at the hardware store:

I'm tempted to try this, but having to use an octane booster to achieve an uncertain octane level is what gives me pause. There are plenty of alcohol free octane boosters available. But how do you know if the resulting fuel has a sufficient level for the 8V?

Here is the thread:

Any ideas how to ensure there is enough octane with this procedure?

Simple solution.
Go-kart clubs here have rules regarding octane of the fuel and its heavily regulated to stop the cheats, they measure "specific gravity".
Contact your local club and ask to speak to the scrutineer.
I think its a similar device to a battery acid tester.

No Ethanol here, YET
I hear on tv yesterday where one of the 'indendants' is pushing hard for ethanol ... farming lobby...?
Therefore not an issue here yet, but it's on the way
Have a safe day

Yes, keep an eye on the crooked politicians. They'll be in bed with the corn alcohol machine if you so much as blink. Our fuel in California is all 10% ethanol and the money grubbing bastards are pushing for 15% now. It's quite simply one of the worst scams ever.
Thanks Ghezzi. I'm going to look into this specific gravity measurement.
