Six vehicles, four of them ethanol blend-fueled and two gasoline-fueled, were examined for intake system deposits. The engines were partially disassembled, photographs were taken, and deposits were evaluated by a professional rater. Elemental analysis was made of the intake valve deposits. Cylinder heads, intake manifolds, and fuel tanks were also inspected. Engines running on blended fuels showed heavy valve deposits.
