    Ethanol fuel is not recommended for fiberglass tanks, not many boat manufacturers use fiberglass tanks anymore. It also gives you worst fuel millage, so are you really saving anything? Use regular gas, you will get better fuel millage. Just my 2 cents

    I agree about Ethanol mixed gasoline, but unfortunately, ethanol-free is difficult to get in my area, and is very expensive (almost a dollar a gallon more)

    But I spoke to the manufacturer, to discuss, and I will be installing an aluminum tank under the floor.

    I never knew there would be a day I would miss gasoline!
