    My ducatis all have steel tanks but Gasohol also destroys the rubber and even viton in fuel lines and injector systems eventually

    Lack of benzine and the tank problem stopped me from buying a new ducati. I wish ducati would redesign this.

    Motorists in the US have been forced to use ethanol blended fuels since the early 90's but you don't hear too many people complaining about it and I never experienced problems with fuel lines or injectors in any of my cars or bikes back in the States. I have to wonder if some of the problems reported here in Thailand aren't perhaps due to a lower quality ethanol in Thai blended fuels?

    Knowing the Thai way of baht-wise, pound foolish I think indeed that the quality and % of the ethanol is not what it should be.
    But it is weird .... there are still gasoline stations (upcountry) where you can not buy ethanol blended fuels at all.

    This is a ducati issue....In the states there have been class action lawsuits because of deformed taks.

    no its not just a Ducati issue although ducati are the worst affected and they handled it very badly hanging all present and future owners out to dry instead of actually solving the problem they defered it by offering extended warranty on the tanks but new bikes still being sold with the same defect., KTM, HD and Triumph were also affected , HD and Triumph re-introduced steel tanks ,many cars and trucks affected too but as the tanks are not cosmeticly visible the issue is hidden until they rupture.
    japanes makes stuck wiuth steel tanks because they are more cautious

    Think Ducati's tanks are actually produced by Acerbis, strange they never changed supplier.

    I questioned the attendant as 95-benzine is tagged in yellow. Yep...it is benzine, which was also reflected in the price: 46-Bt/L

    I finally found a station in Pattaya for benzine...the Caltex station located on the west side of Sukhumvit, just east of Tesco-Lotus South.
    It is currently the _only_ station in Pattaya which has Benzine.
    I know, as yesterday I'd visited _every_ gas station in Nakula to Jomtien, except the one mentioned.
    Surely, 95-benzine will be soon be available at most stations.
