I don't know any place in this country that E 10 fuel is transported via pipeline.

Matter of fact, it isn't transported via pipeline due to the fact that moisture can get in the pipeline and cause problems.

Keep your E 10 in sealed containers and you won't have any water problems with it.

I always keep my E10 in open 5 gal buckets.
I've never had a problem with it collecting moisture, and it is a good place for
flicking my cigarette butts into.

YES you have Ethanol pipeline in the USA since 2008, so please before answering just take 2 minutes of your time to Google "Ethanol pipeline in the USA" and to understand the problem try "Ethanol corrosion in pipelines".

I quit kicking the bucket, this is going nowhere, the same debate keep coming back again and again.

There is a pipeline in Florida that transports ethanol a short distance. As far as I know, it is ethanol only, not refined E 10 gasoline which is the subject under discussion.

I ain't exactly a rookie when it comes to E 10. Been using it since about 1985, My experience, once you understand and practice appropriate storage habits, no more, no less problems than with straight gasoline.

Straight gasoline has/had it's fair share of problems as well which many overlook in their rush to judgement on E 10

Same here.......Biggest problem I see is fuel storage issues. The small engine sites have some good information on the subject of what fuel to use and how to use it?

Personally I find this entire ethanol debate confusing. Its pretty hard to get thoughtful, unbiased information that isnt influenced by political motivation.

Even the websites dedicated to studying it dont have clear conclusions.

But from what I have heard, political or not, we are more likely to get an INCREASE in methanol use than reverting to non ethanol gas. So I guess its up to me as an individual to decide how much time and $$ I want to put into obtaining non ethanol gas for my small engines. And I guess only I will know, via fewer problems, if it was worth it. Not a simple or easy experiment to run in a controlled fashion.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
