E15 is coming!!

Just received my copy of Tree Services magazine and read the editor's story that says in part that "the outdoor power industry has been dealt another blow: the EPA has given approval for retailers to begin selling E15. There is pending litigation and opposition in Washington that has to be overcome, but the Obama administration has set a goal to have the fuel at all pumps in the next five years."

I don't know whether that means that E15 will be made available next to E10 because there is a dispute over labeling (or the lack of) to warn motorists to make sure their car won't be damaged by E15.

Personally, part of this should be to require that E0 be made available in all areas at some stations like E85 and diesel are now. Then they can sell all the ethanol they want.

ethanol is going to cost me a lot of money, the higher ethanol fuels gunk up engines, especially seasonal equipment that sits around

Use additives

I have used additives in gasoline since they started blending E in to fuel.
Amsoil Quickshot has worked well for me the past couple years.

Rec gas is the answer. It is priced higher than E10, but the E10 was costing me even more when it came to all the problems it caused.
