I had to eventually change out all the injectors in a '91 model. was told the current 90/10 blend was the culprit. also, if I went to 87 from 93 there was a noticeable drop in performance

You don't have to add gas line deicer in the winter, you already have 2 gal. in the tank.

This gasoline has recently showed up at 2 gas stations nearby for about $4.00/ gal. Is there any advantage to using this in terms of power and knock resistance? Without the alcohol it would seem like the fuel would have a slightly higher BTU. One of the local racers swears by it, but then he told me it was 97 octane, tainting his opinion somewhat.

You'll certainly see a big increase in fuel mileage with the ethanol free gas. Renegade Racing Fuels offers a high octane ethanol free gasoline called P-97.

GM had problems with some corvette FI engines because the E-10 fuel was used to cool the injectors windings and it attacked the coil insulation.
