Y'know, like the mileage which is 3 or 4 mpg less than pure gasoline. That increases the punishment for wanting independent travel.
Where has this been happening? I didn’t know E15 was even available yet.
If they’re rushing this through, then maybe it’s a good sign that they’re scared of losing their jobs right around January 20, 2013.
For awhile, a couple of years ago, I could still find real gasoline..My mileage was about 33 mpg in my vehicle. Now, with ethanol in all the gas around here, My mileage is about 28 or 29 mpg.
“If theyre rushing this through, then maybe its a good sign that theyre scared of losing their jobs right around January 20, 2013.”
What makes you say that? If Obamney wins, nothing will change. He is just like Zero and loves Ethanol. They won’t lose their jobs no matter who wins.
It makes me wonder why Con-gress isn’t putting the brakes on EPA and other BS bureaucracies that think they have the right to impose regulations on the country.
There is a gas station 18 miles from us on an Indian reservation that sells ethanol free fuel. Nice casino, too.
we are entering the Pol Pot zone where you screw your *subjects* because you can and because your brain is deformed
Ethanol should be reserved to be consumed internally.
Toying with E15 with current cars not designed for it is a stupid idea.
Your two stroke engine IS the target.
Looking at that link, it looks as if all these ethanol free gas stations ( in AZ) are on Indian reservations.
Zero’s Administration is like that Lost in Space Robot programmed to destroy all the critical systems in their spaceship. We are headed for a helluva crash landing if we dont get the posers out of DC.
Don’t have any near my home, the ones I’ve seen on vacation (South Carolina) charge considerably more per gallon vs. E10.
FYI — an idea now gaining traction is moving to E30 or higher. Once in that range, the higher octane boost more than compensates for the lower energy density and the ethanol mileage drag disappears, provided your car is properly tuned. I’m told the automakers are beginning to take a serious look at this because it’s another viable pathway to meeting future mileage requirements. Apparently there’s growing concern that battery limitations will keep electrics from doing the job.
