I just heard on the TV news that the President will be approving E15 for use all year long.  >:( So keep your eye on the signs posted on those fuel pumps to make sure that you are not refilling with E15.   >:(  If you think that E10 is bad for your RE, you really don't want to fill up with that stuff.

Look, I have no problem with making E15 available. Sell 100% Ethanol Spew, for all I care. I just want the option of being allowed to buy what I want. Free Markets and all that. I mean, just because China threw up a tariff on ethanol and Trump felt he had to stroke off Iowa Senators Grassley and Ernst while Ted Cruz served as "towel boy" last Tuesday doesn't mean I should then have to  fill my carb bowls with their sploodge, right?


You'll use the ethanol, and you'll like it.

Buying/using higher then recommended octane gasoline in unmodified engines only decreases the performance of your wallet!

87 octane ethanol since new.  Now over 16,000 miles.  I do add a bit of sta-bil and marvel Mystery oil from time to time.  Never have had a problem.  Fuel without ethanol almost impossible to find here in Kalifornia.  My C5 is so forgiving it would probably run on Chicken fat.
