Lando Lincoln: What would the world be like if all passenger cars just up and disappeared?
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.
vikingfan73: Or maybe we should start importing corn? Or do some nation building in corn-rich countries?
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 thingsEthanol 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.
computerguyUT: Obama....is there anything he can do...right.

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.
