I'll say it again: there is an absolutely noticeable difference between AVGAS in my vehicles, and regular unleaded fuel. No question. A few of the older MV's I run (Chaffee, Sherman, Hellcat, etc) run like CRAP with regular fuel, but AVGAS makes them purr beautifully. I will no longer ever put regular unleaded in any of them.

And i second the 2 stroke comment. Ever since I switched to AVGAS for my weedwhacker and lawnmower, I have never had to take them in for work being done. EVER. It really is a cure all. I might start rubbing it on my poison ivy and drinking it when i feel crappy!

Kerosene is a solvent with little to no lubricants so I certainly hope you are using a lot more than a deicer as an additive!!! That is going to get real expensive when the pumps and injectors start seizing up.

Prist is preventing icing of Jet-A. I pretty much never add prist for the profiles I fly. What you fly is also Jet-A but it is called differently at the military, like JP-4 or something

Pretty much
Our military fuel has the additives and anti icing stuff in them

We usually ask for prist when we get gas at civilian airports A or A+ with that added I think it also prevents bactirea from forming or something like that

I don't have a source for Aviation fuel but the local station here has regular no ethanol gas for sale. I have been using that in my MV's, lawnmowers and weed wackers. Everything runs fine.

I even stock up on no ethanol gas when a hurricane enters the gulf since after Katrina. I have kept gas for a year in cans it is it just like I pumped it. It's the ethanol that goes bad.

Does anyone know what year they started putting hardened valves in Mutt engines? How can you tell?
