We burn 10% ethanol gas in all the vehicles, but all the small engines and bikes drink nothing but pure gasoline. O:-)

Solar pumps would work well in areas where there is abundant sunshine, but we are seldom blessed with much of it during the months of January & February.  Small windmills seem to do the trick here, but a combination of the two would be ideal. :thumbsup:

There is an ethanol plant right here in Fulton. I was told anything above 91 octane can't contain ethanol. I did the research. It's not true. Even 93 can have 10% in it.

I don't put it in anything but my daily driver and riding lawnmower, It states right on it no more than 10% ethanol fuel...

Almost all of the sites mention that one way to prevent a lack of oxygen is go have some open water.  I would  think a solar pump and fountain would work in most winters unless it was a long cold spell.  ln severe cold the opening might freeze over at night.  Worth looking into.

Thanks for posting this Nuke.  I looked at some of the towns I go to and bookmarked the site so I can know where to find it.

Great info. I wonder if it'd be worth the expense for a solar water pump and fountain?

This may be covered elsewhere.  I didn't do a search before posting this.  I use ethanol free gas in all my small engines whether they're 2 stroke or 4 stroke.  I also use StaBil year round and keep all gas tanks full between uses, but I suppose that's a different subject.  Anyway, it seems some folks have trouble finding e-free gas, but I have 2 stations within just a few miles of me that sell it.  Ran across this site today and thought it may be useful to some of you.  All of the USA and Canada is covered.

Thanks Stan and wolfy.

I think that is the challenge- to discern the underlying message. It may be subtle. It takes a lot of time and money to produce films of this scale in influence and detail- the take-away will not be left to chance.
 

It would be interesting to have a group watch one of the films and then take a test on the subject to see how much was learned, how much detail was retained
