Todays fuel is blended for the current automotive industry, which is EFI and EVAP EMISSIONS. It would be too costly (and against most current regulations) to have non-ethanol fuel readily available to all users. You are lucky in that it is available in your area.

The older car hobby has to adapt to current tech, not the other way around. Our health and the environment depend on it. Remember all of the wives tales regarding leaded fuel (and no, I am not a tree huger)?

Today there are more than 40 different EPA-approved fuel blends used in the U.S. – formulations made from sources as diverse as soybeans, coconuts, corn, and used cooking oil. These blends all help the environment by reducing pollution and dependence on fossil fuels, but have a negative effect on automotive and small engine fuel systems. These new fuel blends aggressively degrade general-purpose fuel hose, causing it to deteriorate. Plus, general-purpose fuel hose allows more hydrocarbons to be released into the atmosphere. Degraded hose particles can contaminate and obstruct fuel injectors, which can affect fuel system monitoring sensors and decrease engine efficiency.

That’s why Gates developed Barricade Fuel Line Hose – it withstands today’s aggressive fuel blends and significantly reduces permeation utilizing our patent-pending GreenShield® barrier layer technology and inner tube made of synthetic rubber compounds.
