If you only filled the carb then you are ok. My comment was asking if you also filled the intake manifold.

No not that I know of. The gas had to go somewhere though.

Small amount would evaporate. Large amounts would funnel down any open intake valve to the pistons past the rings into the oil pan. Your the best judge of what you need to do in that regard.

Dave,

There are places that sell gasoline with no alcohol, but unless you are willing to only take the coach one half tank away (so you can use the other half to get back) you will have to rebuild the fuel system. You can look at Ethanol-free gas stations in the U.S. and Canada and see if any are nearby.

It does sound like you need the Thermoquad rebuilt first. And, if the oil is relatively new, you can run with it and the gasoline will evaporate out. You can't do that again.

Except for the carburetor that you are having rebuilt, none of the non-steel parts of your fuel system are E-10 compatible. That can be changed, but it will be work.

You should also start finding new lube oil. The current stock for passcar is not good for your engine. Your 440 need more ZDDP than is allowed in emission controlled engines. Get into the classic and hotrod sites and read about it. I had (have) the same problem (s) with my antique coach.

I use BP premium, almost (at least the ones I have been too have at least 1 pump) it is non oxygenated gas. I use it in my 64 Caddie 429-375 hp. I also use there mid-grade and then every other tank I use the premium in the 82 Pace Arrow and have been for over a year now and she runs great. Yes I pay more but the results are worth it.
