Sounds like another Y2K scenario I'll worry about it when I start having problems with the 10+ small petrol engine items I have

once you start counting all the items it could affect it's a lot of gear to try & preventatively maintain

2 outboards
3mx bikes
2 lawnmowers
stihl saw
chain saw
genny
classic car
strimmer

oh ---k im gonna be busy fixing things with fuel problems

I recall ethanol being blamed for filters clogging during the RI2013 Challenge.
