  2. What all is entailed to get the salt water out of my boat engine, and how much could it end up costing me?

    Answer by bullibe
    After the cause is found and corrected, I would say a couple of oil and filter changes should do it.

  3. I am putting my boat and car up for storage for the next 8 months. I can buy ethanol free gas for my 5 liter boat engine, but I can only buy E-10 gas at the pump for my car. I have heard E-10 will not affect an auto engine, deteriorating rubber gasket or seal components, but I hear it eats at the seals and gaskets in a marine engine. What is the truth?
