The trouble is that according to the state of
californica just about every substance known to
man is "known to the medical world to cause or

I mean in the real world how many people have
gotten cancer from electrical cords?
When everything you see has a warning label on
it, the warning label no longer provides
I can't recall if it was a joke or an actual happenstance, but I seem to
recall something where warning labels were recalled because they
contained products known to the state of California to cause cancer or
other reproductive harm.
I do remember certain gel candles were recalled because they would catch
A mini archive of some of rec.woodworking's best and worst!
Ahhh. That explains brass hose fittings and garden sprinklers. Thanks!
I also have wondered if the chemicals/lubricants used in the
manufacturing could cause cancer for the factory workers, and was a
warning that the manufacturing of the product was the problem, not
necessarily to the end user.
I've seen them and I don't even live in
California so you must not be paying attention.
Here's an example:

Like if I eat my plastic flashlight I might eventually develop cancer?
No, it's about hand wringing fools assuming stupid stuff, and plastering
dire warnings on everything in site.
The problem of course is after a few million stupid, misleading warning
labels, no one pays any attention to them, so if one is actually true,
it is ignored.
Feel free use all the lead pipe you want for
WTF are you going on about? 60+ years of not using stabilizer w/o a
problem to using lead pipes in our drinking water... Have you gone off
16 plus small engines over 60 years w/o stabilizer, 3 rather new, w/o
nary a problem is hardly a single anecdote.
I didn't know I was discussing the rest of country, other than where I
live and what I looked up regarding the population of Pgh and Houston.
California's stupid warning labels is common knowledge to about everyone
We were talking about gas from a month old (Honda) to 2 years old.
Nobody said anything about 40 year old gas. Mostly gas left to winter
over in a small engines. I've gone a few years in 2 cycle gas for weed
wacker and chainsaws. Making no claims about 30-40 year old gas...
Well, yeah, if you are going to put stabilizer in your gas, make sure it
doesn't dry up and turn into a gummy mess. I mentioned earlier that a
guy gave my brother an old snow blower that he had stored with
stabilizer in it, and it wouldn't run. Had to tear down the carburetor
and clean out the gummy mess.
So, the only time in over 60 years we had a problem with gas, was when
someone had put stabilizer in it. THAT is perhaps anecdotal, but true

perhaps, the plastic may contain Bisphenol A.
From the Mayo Clinic:
"Some research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages
from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern
because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and
prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. Additional research
suggests a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure."
also seems that i used gas oil mix for two strokes in the four stroke
so maybe that has created the problem
might explain the greenish buildup i found in the carb float
found a fellow online that separates the ethanol out since his goldwing
does not like ethanol
seems like a lot trouble to go to though
for a motorcycle what choice do you have
you have to burn ethanol fuel since that is all there is now with some
scattered places offering ethanol-free
and further it is hard to confirm ethanol-free
maybe avgas would do
