Fuel question

Has anyone had a problem with the blended alcohol fuel when used in the older 930s? Mine sat from mid November till Easter with 1/4 of a tank of that stuff in it and seems to have developed a "low load" flutter after gassing up before the initial outing.
The "flutter" sensation reminds me of what a carbed 911 feels like if 1 or 2 idle jets are plugged.
I haven't dug into it yet but someone mentioned that some rubber might not be compatible with the alcohol.
Any thoughts?

I had a similar issue and Stephan Kaspar told me to run some Techron (concentrated) in the fuel.....cleared up in 10 minutes of driving. He said the fuel plunger gets a bit gummy. It's cheap to try it.......
