• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $49.99/year or $6.99/month to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

Noticed lately that there is almost nowhere to buy autofuel without at least 10% ethanol. Planes that use autofuel as an STC or in and experimental cannot use ETOH in the fuel. Is there an easy way to remove the ETOH?
Reason I ask---I've got a buddy with an older, high perfomance boat. He does not want to use ETOH in his boat----so, he's been taking a 5 gallon bucket---filling it to about 4 gallons with gas---then adding a gallon of water----sloshes it around and then lets it settle. Siphons off the gas and CLAIMS to wind up with about 1.4 gallons of water/etoh left behind.

Is this really doing anything, oris he full of hooey?
