@TiberiusBravo87 Cars after '91 are mostly built for it. But it murders carburetors and older cooling systems and dissolves older hoses and seals. Fuel injection engines seem okay for the most part. The real brutality is on stuff like tractors and chainsaws.
You can get trufuel at home depot for $20/gallon. www.homedepot.com/p/trufuel-4-cycle-ethanol-free-fuel-4-pack-6527206/316452572
I heard that to store gasoline for a long period of time that you need to add an ingredient to it to stop the degradation.
Gasoline is stable for years and years. You can pull gas out of a car sitting in a garage since 1940 and filter out the rust with a rag and use it just fine. As long as its airtight. Otherwise it will evaporate.
Ethanol is not stable. It burns hotter and cleaner, but it sucks water out of the air. Ethanol-laced fuel goes stale quickly because it pulls water into the fuel. The combination of heat and water murders small engines. You can usually get real-gasoline at small engine stores that will keep gas station gas(10% ethanol) from killing them.
Some gas stations have ethanol free fuel for special boats and racecars but it is rare.
Ethanol-laced fuel must be stabilized, but usually only lasts a year with stabilizers. You can remove the ethanol by mixing the gas with water and then siphoning off the gas, or draining off the water.Read More
@RealReturn @RealReturn I think a lot of blanket statements like this are based on category mistakes. What people fail to realize is that feelings arise in the brain's limbic system. This is the brain system that controls things like threat management, emotion, social interaction, and runs all the time even when you're sleeping. It wakes you up when you hear a threatening noise or smell smoke.
All humans primarily base social decisions and judgements based on feelings that originate in the limbic system. Humans then use their higher cognitive reasoning to justify, explain, and rationalize the decision post-hoc.
Men tend to have a firmer and more idealized noetic structure that essentially filters out impure feelings much more so than women. When a man has a firm belief at the core of his noetic structure, it acts as filter that quashes the feeling.
So for example, if a man believes his wife would never cheat because she's religious or something:
MAN: (I feel like she's cheating) | (she can't cheat) = she's not cheating + post-hoc rationalizations for why she's not cheating
WOMAN: (I feel like he's cheating) = he's cheating + post-hoc rationalizations for why he's cheating
- Men seem more logical because they are more likely to strain impulsive feelings through a rigid idealized belief system.
- Women seem more fickle and impulsive because they are more subject to their limbic impulses.
This is also why male-female communication breaks down so much. If a woman feels like you're cheating, you need to address the feeling. No amount of explanation, rationalization, or rhetorical argument can change the feeling. The right answer isn't "I'm not cheating because of X, Y, and Z." It's a big sloppy kiss and smack on the ass that let's her know in her bones that everything between you is okay.Read More
