Only confirming my suspicion of several years!
My bike is a two-stroke, E15 = seizure, and I just had it rebuilt.
None of my cars will run on it, and it will destroy the carbs, including my expensive Weber units.
This is the Eco-Nut plan, force ALL the older cars and bikes off the road by eliminating the availability of suitable fuel.
I wonder how the guys paying BIG bucks for classics will feel about that?
Oh, and running Av-Gas is actually illegal as it avoids the road tax.
It’s also a “Dry” fuel, so may have it’s own issues with some engines.
Avgas has lead so it’s more problematic than just the road tax.
It’s trouble for the cat converter.
I've been real careful to keep ethanol out of my two stroke bikes and older outboard motor, but it has been easy around here because little or no alcohol is actually blended into gasoline (although state law requires >= 2%).. Only once did I even detect a trace (less than 0.5%) using an EAA test kit. Now I purchase from a Conoco chain that advertises on their billboard "No Ethanol" so I don't bother to test.
Of course, most any bike or racing vehicle, two stroke or four, can be jetted to run on straight alcohol. Seals, etc. will have to be replaced with ethanol-safe ones. In some cases the diluting effect on cylinder wall lubrication must be taken into account. Shouldn't be much of a problem on hard-chromed (Nikasil, etc.) cylinder walls. Will run cooler depending on power output.
