    The latest is that the amount of alcohol that the gasoline industry must use has been reduced.

    For some reason the EPA has been easing regulations just a tiny bit for the small engine and gasoline industries. Just recently they delayed the implementation of regs that would have been the death of 2 strokes. These proposed regs were the reason that companies like Stihl and Shindaiwa developed 4 stroke engines for their handheld applications. The delay in new regs is also why Stihl is again developing new 2 stroke engines.
