I have had a lot of problems due to Ethanol...several rebuilds of the carbs, eventually a new gas tank and consistent fuel evaporation problems, ( and I run her at least once a month). Here's the odd thing, my neighbor has a '67 Vette with fuel injection, runs the car maybe once every two years...and it starts up like a brand new car!! No issues whatsoever, and he doesn't even use Stabil!! Crazy how the fuel injection and better sealing seems to be the trick....regardless of the ethanol!!
