automaticman:

On a side note about additives, has anyone else noticed the heavy ammonia smell that auto exhaust produces lately?? I thought there was something wrong with my car, but smell it all the time from other cars while on my bike.

The Atmos device requires 10% in order to function correctly and reduce the carbon dioxide emissions. Higher ethanol concentrations produce the ammonia smell due to conversion process and kicking off the clone feed gas production process.

Psylence: Might even look into getting a 55gallon drum delivered, so then I can run it in my FJ as well just to see the difference in mileage.


Why stop with a 55 gallon drum when you can get 600,000 metric tons?

vikingfan73: Or maybe we should start importing corn? Or do some nation building in corn-rich countries?


Or stealing water.

Animatronik: This is classic example of liberals doubling down on a bad idea because they think it must be right.
Science is of no value to them unless it supports their idea of how the universe ought to be.

If that sounds familiar, its because this is a religious fervor that drives these things

Ethanol as fuel is too costly, does not add to energy independence, does not reduce CO2, and takes away from food production and exports.

There is no logical reason I can see for EPA to do this except to create the impression of doing something worthwhile while adding to the problem.

stirfrybry: log_jammin: remus: The whole thing is a fraud led by the massively funded ethanol companies

what is the fraud exactly?

That it helps save the planet


THIS.  Only without the saving the planet part.  Because it doesn't do that.

Talk about ethanol that is not corn based and you might be onto something there.  Better yet, stop talking internal combustion engines entirely!

Crap article is crap. All gasoline at the pump already contains at least 10% ethanol and has for years. Up to 20% can easily be used without damaging the engine. More anti-Obama fearmongering from Fox propaganda.

"We just feel that it is not safe for the consumer. It's not safe for their engines,"

And we all know a gut feeling is better than actual, testable evidence.

Archie Goodwin: Dufus: Strange isn't it that back in the eighties we ran gas-o-hol in everything from lawnmowers to motorcycles and never noticed a problem. I actually ran nearly pure ethanol a couple of times with no problem.

Today's alcohol based fuels will destroy a small engine in no time if not treated with extra fuel stabilizers and additives. What are they mandating be formulated into that stuff that makes it so corrosive? I've already had two chainsaws, two generators, and a riding lawnmower nearly junked because of that nasty stuff.

I went to start my generator after Hurricane Issac and found white fibrous sludge clogging the fuel bowl and carburetor even though I ran it several times a month..What are they adding to the mix that we don't know about?

Only thing I can think of - Lead.

Back in the 80's fuel had lead additives, now it probably doesn't. What they replaced it with I have no idea.


Lead was freaking awesome for everything. That paint won't come off, the gas won't go bad, and your car's radiator will never break.

Why did people have to CONSUME it?

FTA:  " Toyota and Lexus even placed warning labels on gas caps and owner's manual instructions caution not to use E-15."

So, you're suggesting that two Japanese companies that are renowned for Quality and engineering are part of this vast right wing conspiracy?

Did you remember your meds tonight?
