I read recently that the refineries were starting to shut down to switch over from making winter to summer blend gasoline. Last year I did several experiments in the spring because I had gasoline boiling in the tank of my 8N when mowing on 90+ degree days. What I found was that if I had winter blend gas in the tank, alcohol blend or not, then I could have it boil at the higher ambient temperatures. When I switched over to summer blend I did not have the boiling problem regardless of how hot it got. I believe my boiling problem is a result of the winter gas being more volatile. My local gas station says they will be selling all summer blend by the first of May. At that time I plan to dump any remaining winter blend gas into my old Ford Escort and use only summer blend gas in my tractor. It would be interesting if others would try this and report if using summer blend gas stops previous tank boiling problems.

Dont need to your right, they aint going to throw out winter gas they will blend it in somewhere. It was real bad in the late 70s when ya bought large bulk gas blocks, on real out of season days our fleet would not run right and puked,buck and smoke like a 53 Dimond Rio.

Hey John,
Slow volume refueling stations are a real problem for MY '89 Escort 1.9 CFI.

I get a lot more "bucking" in the engine with in the Summer with those slow volume stations. They still have WINTER gas in their 5000 gal tanks. SO, the remedy for me is putting some "SEAFOAM" in the fuel, espeially in the SUMMERS.

John,PA
