Much ado over nothing.In my area.... you cant trust the gas stations.. pump says premium, you pay for premium.... but its not premium.... (i know the guy that unloads the fuel)..... Ethanol is a loosing market. If the gov has to subsidize it to keep it going and its not improving fuel mileage....
100% ethanol is a pretty badass race fuel and nice for a cleaner (as long as your not using rubber or paper gaskets!)
Costing me $$$ for a new chainsaw carb right now!Don't run it in small engines and you'll be fine.
Makes more sense than burning food through the cars...From Reuters:
Congressman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia on Wednesday introduced legislation that would essentially eliminate the RFS in order, he said, "to help protect consumers, producers, and the American economy."
Goodlatte and fellow Republican Steve Womack of Arkansas was joined by Democrats Jim Costa of California and Peter Welch of Vermont and other lawmakers.
The legislation would eliminate corn-based ethanol targets, which make up the vast majority of the biofuel mandate. It would also cap the amount of ethanol that can be blended into gasoline at 10 percent, while requiring the government to set targets for cellulosic ethanol use at levels of actual production.
Refiners have been required to buy credits for cellulosic biofuels, made from sources such as grasses, wood chips and agricultural waste, even though the fuel has not been commercially available.
The lawmakers backing the bill said the renewable fuel mandate has raised corn prices, pushing up food prices and hurting livestock producers.
"The debate is over," Costa said at a press conference. "The RFS, as we know it, is not sustainable and it's not good for American long term energy needs."
Goodlatte said he believes support for changing the mandate is growing and that this effort may succeed where prior measures have stumbled
I believe those are race bikes that have been modified to run that fuel. Do you know anyone running E-85 on the street, putting 15 - 20 K miles a year on it ?Much ado over nothing.
Ethanol subsidies ended last year.
As noted in the article "Ethanol blends of 25 percent have been used for years in Brazil with no ill effects on the same cars sold in the U.S."
Don't run it in small engines and you'll be fine.
Plenty of guys are running E-85 in Busas that were not intended for more than E-10.
I don't know anybody that puts on 15 - 20 k miles a year, gas or otherwise. The modification is simply a reflash of the ECU or add fuel via Bazzaz or PC.I believe those are race bikes that have been modified to run that fuel.
