I think the premimum thing may be true. Here in TN as well as GA, A lot of Chevron and Shell stations have gas with no ethanol. Most late model bikes and autos are OK with up to a 10% blend, just makes the engines run bad, kills gas milage.
Use Stabil gas additive. Keeps gas good for up to two years. Stabil now has a "ethanol" formula to help fight the side effects of ethanol rusting anything metal, and damaging fuel line plastic.
The stuff works, it's amazing, started my pressure washer for the first time with 2 1/2 year old gas on the second pull!
