Study: New E15 Gas Can Ruin Auto Engines

This week's warm Washington temperatures had some thinking about rolling the Lawn-Boy out of the garage for the first cut of the year. And we all know what that means: Difficult starts due to E10 gas that gels when it sits.

Now, according to a new study, cars and truck may face the same fate thanks to President Obama's demand for a higher ethanol in the new E15 gas.

The fuel industry's American Petroleum Institute tested the 15 percent ethanol gas approved in 2010 and found it gums up fuel systems, prompts "check engine" lights to come on, and messes with fuel gauge readings.

And then, when we can't get our cars fixed, we will all ride public transportation. Just one more notch in the Socialist agenda's belt!

so can the E-whatever is lower...(ruin your motor)
My mileage dropped to HALF of what I got previously, so I go to mainstreet & buy ethanol free. Costs a little more, but does it when you only buy half as much.
