AC I've grown to appreciate the genius of Hendrix over the years
I've had good luck running mixed gas for the last tank and not draining or running out.
Any thing that actually requires mixed gas hasn't been a problem, even after two years sitting unused.
One should add a half bottle of injection cleaner every oil change.
I have noticed that Irving gas made in Canada gives about 2 mpg better than Citgo.
If you want gas that won't turn to varnish while sitting in a tank for several months; go fill up with aviation gas. ( but check the price)
To the best of my knowledge I have never heard a Grateful Dead song. Most of the dead people I was around were not happy about their status. My favorite group was Credence Clearwater Revival which you could hear playing on just about any cheap transistor radio in Vietnam.
