Briggs & Stratton has developed a fuel additive that would help offset the harmful effects of gasoline with 10% ethanol on small engines. The additive displaces moisture and prevents ethanol from building up in the fuel system, according to Scott Wesenberg, manager of Briggs' fuel systems group. Briggs & Stratton came up with the idea after discovering that contaminated gasoline in small engines was the most prevalent problem among its customers.
