Long Distance Driving, mainly gasoline

Posted by MGWrench On 2023/9/8 9:43:42
I'm looking for a 1940 110 Touring Sedan, but I may get a later Packard more like the '51-'54 cars I grew up with. I've seen a number of forum items about how the ethanol in gas eats up the fuel system and carburetors. There isn't ethanol-free gasoline in my area, so my questions are:
1. Should I trailer a newly bought Packard home instead of driving it?
2. Other than replacing the fuel lines and fuel pump diaphragm with ethanol resistant parts, what can I do to protect the rest of the fuel system?
