I use a squeegee occasionally to dry my van, it works great along with clean soft towels. I wouldn't use it on paint I really care about though.

I've used E10 in a number of carbureted engines for 30+ years and never had a fuel related issue. That includes vintage tractors, regular vehicles, and both 2 and 4 stroke small engines. I keep Stabil in all my non-automotive fuel, but that's becau
