So I am picking up my new Alpine White Wolverine a week from tomorrow! Wahoo I'm pumped! But was curious are the Wolverines and other newer utvs more tolerant of ethanol fuel? I had 2 Rhinos and the didnt like it , always ran premium non ethanol in them . I just was thinking maybe powersports engines were catching up to automotive .

I try to run non-ethanol but have to go way out of my way to get it. So, I actually run both and no problems so far. It gets ran almost daily though. Now if I let it sit without running for extended periods, I would make sure to get non-ethanol.

I agree with Deeyoh. If you put ethanol in your tank and it is going to stay for more than a few weeks, use a fuel treatment made for ethanol. Yamaha Fuel Stabilizer & Conditioner PLUS
is Strongly recommended for E-10 fuels, this alcohol-free formula helps prevent fuel oxidation and phase separation from moist, rich air. When used continuously, it keeps fuel fresh, potent and free from gum and varnish for up to one year of storage.
Its metal filmers provide extensive protection for steel and aluminum components. Ethanol is tough on your entire fuel system, it doesn't matter which brand or machine you own.

I'm sure they test them with the typical E10 fuel as that is what most places have.

The guy that brings the fuel to our WV trips brings avgas for everyones machines but he is a little out there :).
