Pretty sure the higher ethanol content decreases the fuel mileage.


Yep.

Wife’s truck is running E85 and it’s about 1.5 less fuel Mileage than premium. Does not start well either. Harder on injectors too.

If they want to ruin some older fuel systems then ethanol will do it!

Most people don't even know or remember that Trump did this in 2019.

If it does go to 15%, I'd definitely drive & pay higher prices for ethanol free gas to use in small engines (chainsaw,leaf blower,..)
The 10% causes enough problems to small engines.

I don't see how 15% will help at all.

I agree with BP (Barry) it will reek havoc on the older fuel systems while also reducing the mileage, but count on the Biden Administration spinning the story to fit their agenda. Most (mindless) folks will "Buy" any story they dump on the public and accept it as Gospel.

Biden and his kids (especially Hunter) are probably out there buying as many corn fields as they can.

Both reg and mid have some ethanol (%?) in it now and yes it reeks havoc on small and large engines and carbs. Especially Generators! I dump 5 of supreme in occasionally.

$5.299 for regular at Costco this morning (4/13/22), best price I could find in San Diego. $81.00 to fill the tank in my Tacoma. I'm going to wait it out for the next 12 days or so to re-fill the motor home.

Inflation is costing the average family $400-500 more per month, how do they make that up? The answer is that they use more of their disposable income. Many bracket racers will have to choose whether to race less or give up family vacation, fishing trip or some other non-essential activity. Just like in 2009 when the ACA was passed, there was a large downturn in leisure activities of all kinds.

Dictator Biden just authorized another 800 MILLION to go to Ukraine.

I wonder how much of that Hunter Biden gets and what the "Big Guy's" cut is?

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.
