E15 to E85 coming to a pump near you!
 
Well it's here at the pump...E15 all the way up to E85. Now what do I do? :baldy

Buy an electric bike. Time to give in/up.

E89 works nicely.

That just sucks on so many ignorant bureaucratic levels.

Invest in corn futures.

So this is from the us department of energy:

Quote:

E85 has about 27% less energy per gallon than gasoline (mileage penalty lessens as ethanol content decreases), but, because ethanol is a high-octane fuel, it offers increased vehicle power and performance.
Beyond the simple mis-truth here, in the same sentence they say "E85 has about 27% less energy per gallon than gasoline", followed by "it offers increased vehicle power..."

I've seen TV ads at 3 in the morning that sounded more honest...

What they are saying is that if you redesign the engine for Emore, you can get higher power because Emore has higher octane which supports higher compression?

I'd be fine with the E15, if it meant the other gas would drop the E10 BS, and go pure petroleum.

Be glad you don't own a Ducati with a bendy-ass plastic tank. Ethanol balloons it up pretty good.

It will be the 89+ grade for me at that station.

What chaps my ass is the bullshit in your post. At most E-15 will ding you 5%, if you're getting 20 mpg on pure gas, you'll get 19 mpg on E-15. Hardly a back breaking reduction.

But you're not running pure gas now, are you? So the difference between E-10 and E-15 will be .33 mpg if you're still talking about that 20 mpg average.

What chaps my ass is somebody spreading bullshit that makes a living off of corn.

It's not bullshit, it's math.

I get about 10% better MPG with E0 than E10.
