Post subject:  Rubber gaskets

I meant to post this question a while ago but of course other things had my attention, quicker ET! I noticed after a couple of months using E85 that my rubber felpro valve cover gaskets are basicly disintigrating. I had no issue using race gas and when I went to check valve lash the gaskets fell apart! My rubber oil pan end seals don't seam to have this issue. Has anyone else noticed this and if so, what material are you using?
Thanks, Keith

Thanks Barry, No I'm using the plain black rubber felpro's. I was wondering if the blue ones like your using were that much different in material. I'll get a set along with the pan gasket just to be sure. Thanks.

I'm running the blue felpro's on both valve covers and oil pan gaskets and haven't noticed any issues.
