Anyone confirm this?

Years ago I raced Mx and had YZF 400 Yamaha .If it sat for a week I was difficult to start but if I drained the fuel and put fresh fuel in started no probs.

Someone told me about the fuel loosing its kick in a plastic can so i put an alloy tank on the bike solved all the problems.

Some of the pump gas over here is just so awful with up to 20% ethanol added...i know its a bit more expensive but i found my '74 Ty250 loves this stuff (fully synthetic) and runs like a dream!  :)

 I use that in my saws, other than the expense I would have no problem using it my bikes. Bel Ray makes Husky oil.
