Everybody remembers when this big push to ethanol took place. In a "lets find quick energy independance" some smart people in politics and in the "corn" belt jumped on this one and quickly won administration, congressional and enviromental approvals and WHOLA! here comes ethanol and mandated use requirements even before any good usage studies and tests like this were properly and completely done.
Now when industires cannot afford warranty and equipment failure issues in this horrible economy we are going to be made to "Walk the Plank" and do a lot of equipment and damage to many industries, sports and economies.
Instead of doing good due dilegence evaluation and good scientific testing, those wonderful "Power Brokers" (elected Officials & Lobbyists) in their infinite knowledge and wisdom are hanging the overall American public with a real problem.
I know the central US and its farming base needs business and growth, but this would be like boat builders saying that 1/16" thick boat hulls will save fuel and help us burn less oil and make us more energy independant. They would have not seen the eminent boat sinkings when the law for its thinwall usage was mandated, just after a few hundred sank and killed a few boaters! OH GEEZ, You mean we gotta think about things like this before we pass these new laws and set things like this in motion!!???
One must think about the ultimate damage to the current vehicles that are running E15& E85. If this damage occurs in marine engines it will utlimatly occur in automotive engines, just at a slower pace most likely.
Get out the Popcorn! This is gonna be a good one!
