Just purchased a 2.5 hp outboard for my getaway and after researching ethanol gas use in marine outboards I'm confused. Some reputable sites state that its a myth ethanol gas blends <10% harm engines. Others say to only use no ethanol gas. Any opinions on this subject?

After having many problems with my outboard for many years, I now ONLY use Ethanol free gas.

Yep, if you have the option for non ethanol I would do it. I have been running non ethanol in all my toys ( outboard, jetskis,dirt bikes, lawn mowers, weed wackers etc for 25 years. Steve C
