Tks for the tip to about the fuel... i didn't think about that until now.
That much ethanol is going to be hard on parts! But, guess it is what it is.

Congratulations on getting the engine running. Continue to use MMO (,if available) in the gas, if you can not get MMO use regular oil. Do you have any access to an additive to combat the ethanol?
