    Ethanol 15% coming in June

    What can be done to off set this terrible E15% if it comes this Summer. Is there an additive we can add to our tanks to cancel to bad effects that will damage our engines?

    Says who??

    California’s Air Resources Board has stated officially in the recent past that the adoption of E15 is “several years off” if at all depending on testing, economic, and environmental testing.

    There is lobby organization, the Renewable Fuel Association, that is pushing this for a litany of “noble” reasons when in fact they are funded by the corn farmers who grow the source for the crap.

    Just logged onto the CARB home page and there is nothing new regarding E15.....the E15 comment page is littered by verbage promoting the merits of E15 by guess who? The Renewable Fuel Association!

    According to these weasels E15 is good for everything from apple pie to motherhood! Funny they don’t talk about subsidizing the corn farmers.

    Nothing about sale of E15 in the near future.

    The sky is not falling.......

    What Mr Trump says and what gets done are separate issues. He is quoted as saying he was going to have the EPA "look into E15" at a campaign rally in Iowa.

    Gee! Iowa? Corn? Another weasel politician playing to the crowd.

    It's NOT his or the EPA's call....fuel and emission standards are sill state's rights....It's CARB's call, and so far they've not made any move toward E15 aside from their statement that it would be "years" to adopt E15 in Califiornia if at all. It's fascinating that CARB is being cautious given it's reputation of strict and draconian emission policies. There are 23 states who do allow sale of E15.

    Here in Belgium it happened from Jan 2017 ... SP95-E10 ... 10% ethanol in the "normal" 95 octane gas ... the 98/100 is still at 5% max ... all people with old cars switched to the latter ... additives won't work ...

    Oops. Looking in CA, just 27 stations state wide. I see your concern.

    Thanks for posting, checked several I use in the mountains here and west of me and looks pretty accurate,
    Perfect for the trip to the Texas Hill Country Rallye, last year was hit & miss with a lot of availability once you got into Texas.

    Best Regards
