    Thumbs down 10% to 15% ethanol

    I saw in the newspaper there is a new bill introduced by some congressman to allow the use of 15% ethanol in all gasoline in the future! I sure don't think we need it. Most of our current engines can hardley run with the 10% ethanol in them now. Just sad what the current folks in Washington are doing to us !Tommy Jordan

    Actually just the opposite is going to happen. They are thinking of reducing ethanol content to 8% max by law and possibly reducing it even further over time. The use of ethanol has backfired and they are now seeing more harmful effects from the additional corn crop being planted for purely ethanol use. Since the EPA is making the requests, I think it will actually occur and within a year. The EPA seems to always get what they want and now that they realize they screwed up on this one they will want to reverse the ill effects before it becomes widely known in the US. I predict it will show 8% ethanol max on the gas pumps within 6 months. Right now the average car cannot run on 15% ethanol without engine damage and they are not going to change out 300 million cars in a couple of years!

    On what basis is this timeframe prediction being made?
