Good post Jim, America needs to wake up.

No motorcycles on the road today can use this gas. None.

This is all just to sell corn, to be made into ethanol.

Here is the EPA’s list of vehicles that should not be fueled with E15:
Motorcycles
Vehicles with heavy-duty engines, such as school buses and delivery trucks
Off-road vehicles, such as boats and snowmobiles
Engines in off-road equipment, such as lawnmowers and chainsaws
Model-year 2000 and older cars, light-duty trucks and medium-duty passenger vehicles (later changed to model-year 2007 and older)

POLITICS OF ETHANOL

Every gallon of corn-derived alcohol sold in motor fuel is two-thirds of a gallon of gasoline that the oil companies don’t sell. Do they like this?

Corn states love alcohol in fuel because it drives up corn prices.

Beef states hate higher feed prices.

Hydrofracking has raised U.S. production of oil and gas, reducing concern over energy independence and cutting incentive to add alcohol to gasoline.

The U.N. has asked the U.S. to suspend its use of corn to power automobiles as it drives up world food prices, especially in this drought year.
Many ask why government should subsidize the ethanol industry.

Why add a product that isn't needed, reduces mileage drastically, and can harm your vehicle? Plus it drives up the prices of almost every product made in the US, from cereal to beef to chicken to just about all groceries.

If you put this in your lawn mower and let it set over the winter, good luck in getting that mower started next spring.....

Alcohol attracts moisture and seriously shortens the shelf life of gasoline.

I have used alcohol in racing. At the end of the day, you must purge the engine of all alcohol. If you don't, corrosion will destroy the engine while it sets in your garage.

Run it lean and it will burn you up real fast......
