E10 ate my carburator

Its my push mower which sat for a few months. All that other white stuff on the ground came out of the fuel bowl.

Aluminum oxidation... Back in the good old day's it was simply varnish you could wash of with carb cleaner unless it got water in it...

Everyone around here uses ethanol free in their mowers boats and older vehicles for this reason and it tends to run a ton better especially early 70s and below

Here in AZ Ive never seen non E10 gas for a long time, since B4 MTBE. This may get worse, if EPA approves E15. All a govt effort to get us to buy new vehicles and power equipment.Soon they will tell us what to buy what you legally can drive,
