I had to clean my funnel and screen in it yesterday. That 4620 I dumped the gas with white growing looking particles in  mix.  When dried coated the screen across all the screen openings and sides of funnels. Can only imagine what it would have done to carb.

I always assumed the white stuff to be aluminum oxide? That a certain percentage of water in E-10 - The water begins to react with internal parts? the reason I say this is because the ethanol in E-10 will absorb water unseen up to a certain point which may be corrosive sooner than the saturation point where the whole water- ethanol mess drops out of the suspension?

I'm just guessing?
