Somehow I just knew this crap was coming. The Gubberrment in their infinite wisdom told everyone that up to 10% Ethanol was ok in engines not designed to run Ethanol. So we now get 10% of it and the crappy gas mileage that goes with it. Now we will end up with E10 all year or worse with more than the 10% so we can trash our motors too...............geeeezzzz.......I hope not.

So we won't have to depend on foreign oil.......well then stop shipping our Alaskan oil from the Port of Valdez overseas then.....

Sorry, this BS they keep feeding everyone makes me upset.

i emailed the author inquiring about his comment that "virtually" all gas in FL contains ethanol asking where i might find 100% gas.

he responded by saying he bought some racing fuel from a Sunoco near I-75 for $7.50/gal.

It was started way before Omama.......he just got into office and so now everything is his fault I guess. Give him time but pray things start to get better as we ALL are in the same boat.

I really hope they don't start putting more than 10% Ethanol in our gas. I lose almost 2 mpg with it at 10% and don't have a choice as all our gas is 10% Ethanol around here.

That is the first clue to him possibly being an idiot. I am sure you wern't asking him about racing fuel.

idiot? not likely. he's very informed and has been in the know of the auto industry for many years.

my guess would be that the newspaper paid for the race fuel. you know, expense account or experimenting for the sake of a story.

no question the increase in economy wasn't even close to breaking even at that price!
