My marina has switched to a 90/10 ethanol gas, and my first tank has raised heck with my fuel filter...dislodged junk, etc. Will this water-friendly fuel damage my cast iron carb? What measures should I take besides carb cleaning and filter replacement? My engine is a Universal Utility Four, Model BN, approx 20hp, flathead, updraft carb.
