BTW, Found a station in Midland thanks to rinnwald’s post #47! It’ll be worth the 28 miles to ignore the EPA.
Both of my stations confirmed that they don't use ethanol. Wouldn't hurt to check, as it's a user-updated list.
Aren’t we expecting a corn shortage in the near future? And yet, Obama’s EPA are charging forward with the introduction of E85 fuels. They’re despicable.
Will do! I’ll post my findings if there is one.
I guess I will have to pour most of the gas on the concrete.....
Not if there’s a liberal getting gas next to you.
Pour it on the lib.
Be kind though. Tell them not to use their cell phone to call for help. ;^)
” We are still allowed to own and drive cars? “
That ends Oct. 1st.
Make that November 7th, and I’m on board with your assessment.
I thought abouth saying Nov. 7th.......you took care of it for me : )
“abouth” is now a new word : )
My good chain saw cost me over $350 in 1993. I will happily pay more for E-free gas to not have to rebuild it.
100LL is definitely illegal for use in anything with a catalytic converter, but I assume it’s OK for engines without.
None of my OPE, including my Polaris ATV has a converter.
No big. Your idea was dead on target.
You are correct. Many credit card companies have a $75 limit—they say in case your card is stolen. One truck stop near me has that policy, etc. I must go inside & give the girl my card & tell her to restart the pump & give me 2 receipts.
During the last tropical storm I saw on tv that in Cuba about 3% of the families have automobiles.
That’s likely the target for the Obama plan.
I wouldn’t doubt it. BUMP your tagline!
Where’s the list of the “certain gas stations”?
Any after market additives that we can use??
Small engines, especially 2 strokes, you buy a gallon or 2 can do your pre-mix and go.
But it is about anything gas powered and nudging it to stop or use something else.
My guess is GE has a line of battery powered yard tools ready to launch or GM does....
” Wheres the list of the certain gas stations?”
For how long? This is just another small cut in the effort to bleed us out.
Yeah, yeah......anyone who does start an insurrection will be vilified, and by many on this site.
The Government has been pushing every so often to guage sentiment about how
far they can take our freedoms to give more power and control to the Government.
The key here is incremental as many here already know. They'll slap us with
some outrageous ideal about say "One Mile" then settle for 100-yards, and America
goes back to work and ignores the 100-yards thinking wow, it would've been much worse.
Well, it is much worse because over the decades that 100-yards has added up to 500 miles
and we keep clunking down the road on flat tires happy that the last round of control didn't
just rip our wheels off.
America is running out of gas to keep up with the 500-mile journey this generation.
The next generation will have to give up their money and freedom to keep us going
and the Gov will keep adding 100-yards every year we stop taking notice.
The end game will place America into third world status and dictatorship.
I know some hard core bikers who carry this: http://fuelmedics.com/
I personally don’t. I haven’t had a problem with the E10 I encounter. I haven’t seen any of these higher grade gasolines at the pump yet.
I assume you’re looking for post #47.
I think you’re looking for post #47.
So this is not an airline fuel? I thought you were joking!
I think most cars built after 2000 have catalytic converters because it was just cheaper to put them in all rather than cater to the states that required them.
Yes 100LL is for piston engined aircraft.
100 octane low lead.
Actually almost all cars built since the late 70s/early 80s have cats.
( * The EPA approved E15 for sale in the U.S. using a partial waiver, meaning it is only approved for some vehicles on the road cars 2001 and later. * ) ... there you go folks, that is the motive and reason for Cash for Clunkers..... someone is lining their pockets with money... and it sure ain’t us.
I remember times when gas was $ 1.00 and I had 89 cents to put in the tank just enough to get home.
” We are still allowed to own and drive cars? “ .... yes, if you can afford a “ Smart car “ .. or a $ 30,000 + Chevy Volt.
Occasionally I see a smart car on my way to work, usually the same woman driving. That is a scary vision of the future they have planned for us, driving those toy cars.
Would they be classified as skateboards ?
This is outrageous!
But what that Obama does isn’t?
Thanks for the recent pings my friend
You're welcome, FRiend. I try my best to keep those pings to a minimum, but... lots of news breaking out all over lately.
God: PLEASE let this 4-year long nightmare end on 1-20-13!!
Piss on the nazi EPA. I’ve got a two gallon gas can. I’ll fill it, then let the other two gallons run out on the street. How about THAT, envirofascists?
My kid just started driving and he pump $10 at a time how does that help him.
IT IS AN ATTACK ON SPORTSTER RIDERS!!!!!!!!
Everyone hold on to your hats; next comes the gas guzzler ban (i.e., the sale of more than 10 gallons). If he can set a lower limit with a presidential order, he can set an upper limit.
Blue collar worker pulls up to a gas pump in a beat up old car, takes a ten dollar bill inside. Clerk says I can't sell you gas - 4 gallon minimum. "But I have to get to work." Four gallon minimum, President Obama says. "This is all the money I have left. I need to get to work to make more." "Four gallon Minimum. Under President Bush a ten spot could get you four gallons. Not no more. Sorry, buddy."
Cut to shot of worker on highway with his thumb out.
Fits right in with how much health care you are required to purchase.
As soon as his buddies take over some other industries, you can look forward to similar requirements.
Count me in.
But to be fair, the democrats balance this out with a maximum size on sodas. So you see it all evens out.
I bought A Husqvarna chain saw in 1997. It was easy to start and ran great until I had to begin using 10% ethanol/gas a few years ago. Not long after that it became hard to start and finally stopped running at all. The mechanic at the local Husky shop checked it out and said the carburetor and some rubber & plastic parts were ruined by the ethanol. It would have cost about 2/3 as much to replace the carb and everything else that was damaged as a new saw would cost. I didn't think that was a very good idea, so I bought a new Echo saw at Home Depot that started every time with one pull for about the first year or a bit longer. Now it's also getting hard to start, and my leaf blower has also begun running poorly.
I also wonder what ethanol may be doing to my Toyota. The owner's book says ethanol/gas is OK. So far it's starting easily and running well and gets 35-37 mpg on the highway after 65K miles, but who knows what kind of damage is being done but hasn't shown up yet? The Echo saw was also supposed to be OK with ethanol/gas and the hard starting didn't start showing up for a year or so.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention this. My old Dodge pickup's engine is missing badly, and putting in new plugs and ignition wiring didn't help a bit. So I guess ethanol has probably ruined something in it's gas lines and carburetor. The government shouldn't even allow selling this ethanol crap as motor fuel, but instead it almost forces us to buy it. If I had my way we would vote out everybody in the current government and start over again with new people who have our best interest in mind.
first they came for the big gulps... and i said nothing.
