I just found this on the internet. Looks like everyone is going to be stuck running this crap:
"As part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the U.S. Congress put into place the requirement for increases in the amount of biofuel (usually ethanol) that must be mixed with gasoline sold in the United States. In response to this requirement, Chevron and other refineries will begin to produce and sell gasoline containing 10% ethanol (E10) in Utah beginning the end of March 2010. (Fact sheet & Conversion Checklist) (Utah Department of Agriculture/Weights and Measures rules regarding ethanol in motor fuel."
I was talking to my mechanic yesterday about this and he told me his Toyota truck had started going a hundred miles less on a tank. He thought it just needed a tune up but when he checked the mileage on his wife's car, it was doing the same. I know Utah required it in the fuel during the winter months for a couple of years. Then they got a waiver from the EPA because they found it wasn't reducing emissions.
I know there are tests showing cars getting the same or better mileage using ethanol, but the cars they use in the tests are designed to run on it. If you have an older car your going to see a drop in mileage and performance, at least that's been my experience.
What good does it do to reduce the gasoline percentage in the fuel 10% if people have to burn 25% more fuel to drive the same miles. Looks like the gas companies have found a new way to get there profits up to where they were before people started driving less.
This is BS plain and simple!
