Default EFI or Carb?

Just wondering which you guys like better? I am looking at new big bore atv's and can't decide which why to go. I live in the northeast if that would make any difference. Though I will probably not take it into very high elevations. I heard that the 10% ethanol in gas right now is causing oxidation, which causes the needle valve in the carb to rust closed. Anyone now about this? A friend also informed me that some EFI's will stall out when trying to wheelie. What do you guys think?

You still can't go wrong with the good 'ol reliable carb IMO. I have no need for EFI myself.

I looked at both and went with EFI and I have to say i'm very glad i did.
The ease of starting it cold is awesome. and i think the responce is very impressive. best part though is with an EFI you'll be able to put more hours on a tank of gas.
So i think the good out weights the bad.

Biggest upside to carb is there easy to work on.
