The Problem: Ethanol Corrosion In Carbureted Street Rods The growing use of Ethanol in modern pump fuel significantly increases the risk of carburetor and fuel system corrosion. Ethanol is hygroscopic meaning it absorbs mois- ture, which causes corrosion in the fuel system and inside the engine. High levels of Ethanol dilution in the motor oil can also lead to increased moisture in the crankcase, thereby causing rust and other corrosion problems. Plus, Ethanol by itself is corrosive to components made from Zinc and aluminum, like carburetors. These problems are compounded by periods of vehicle storage typical with classic vehicles. 1.866.611.1820 • DRIVENRACINGOIL.COM Ethanol Attacks Carburetors & Mechanical Fuel Pumps.
