Can some tell me if mogas presents any risk to older fuel tanks.  I have a vague recollection of possible ethanol issues causing cracks.   My kit was bought in 2003.Thanks

Mogas has no effect on polyethylene, that’s what they make gas cans of.

Will,

You can search on this list for "fuel tank fluoride" to learn about the problem.

Your kit should be new enough to have the treated tank.

Look at Custom Flight Creations website for tips on supporting the tank.

We run nothing but Mogas and no problems in 1000 hours.

Jim
thanks - is your's a 914? (Not relevant to the tank issue but relevant to detonation)
I spoke to Bud yesterday and he uses 100LL + TCP but agreed with you that I could run premium mogas.
I did the Yerly tank supporting mod - supporting the forward lower edge, corner and  tunnel edge of the tank and filling the gap underneath the tank with aerosol foam.  Fingers crossed.
