Non ethanol gas

Having trouble finding non ethanol fuel in my area.  Have been using evinrude 2+4 fuel treatment in every tank .. Found some possible non ethanol fuel but it 93 octane.  Don't mind paying the extra money to keep my engine running great but if I can't find it and need to switch back to 87 ethanol with the fuel treatment will switching back to 87 after using the 93 cause any problems.  Engine requires min 87 it is a 2014  50 hp e-tec.  Thanks

NO ISSUE.I have a 2011 etec and only use 87 which is mostly e10 ,since ive owned new and used same fuel in my 82 90hp for years ,again no issues.Eth is a fantastic fuel system cleaner and i can bet you whatever, the problems asociated with eth are mosty dirty systems being cleaned out and plugging up.

Re: Non ethanol gas

Use the 87 octane with the regular mixture -not storage mixture - of 2+4 fuel additive.
