The problem is the basis of assumption is failure to start is a fuel desegregation issue.


That is not remotely fact based.

They could fail to start for a lot of reasons and the fact they do start means nothing as well.

Putting an additive in the fuel, keeping said fuel say say 75 degrees and then getting a test report on the gas would be the only way to get any idea and even that has variable of tempearue assumption (AK is quite cool compared to most locales even in the summer).

I have had those tests done on diesel to see how it was doing. Bottom line was I could tell just by the color how it was doing. My test subject were in steel tanks so I did not have jars of diesel sitting on a shelf and the temp control was pretty good in the one building with 6 tanks so I had a pretty decent temp stability.

Pull a fuel sample out of the tanks and see what the condition looks like will tell you more than starting. I have had rigs that were run on 60 Octane fuel (they had a mini refinery up on Prudhoe for the oil field use). Equipment still ran on it fairly ok so is not a given it means anything on how they run. So to baseline you would could start with the rated octane but would need a lab test to see what it was after a year.

if that guy didn't act so funny i might actually consider watching it but i really just can't tolerate watching his video. he makes me think of 1puglife. at one point the stupid antics were kind of entertaining but now it just stupid and can't even understand half the crap he says.

I watch the Project Farm videos on his comparisons . Maybe he did this already. It would be easy to find out. Plus, I have used some of Project Farm recommendations with success so I consider him more scientifically reliable.

i have watched projects farm video on fuel and the additives he used which is what proved to me it is better to use ethanol free fuel when possible since it is less likely to gum up a carb. i haven't got it in my engine yet but he is the reason i picked up motorkote. i have been meaning to do oil changes on all my machines to add it.

I love Taryl-Dactyl! Yes his videos are not normal but he adds comedy to get his points across. He really knows his stuff and personally has taught me a lot on carbs. If you're reading this Daryl, THANK YOU!
