I take it you don't eat any hybrid veggies.

It would likely kill the cows, if it weren't for the obscene amount of antibiotics that they pump them full of to allow it. Cows fed with grain are also prone to carrying disease that ends up in the meat, and runoff.

The sad reality is that most of the food we eat was once corn. Shills will try to convince you that there is no difference, but there is. Even before food transitioned to fuel and caused the price of food to skyrocket, we were still subsidizing this with our taxes.

This is history book-caliber fraud, it's been happening unchecked for a decade or more, and it will continue until we have a government that doesn't have corporate overlords to bow to.

And based on your earlier post, it happens faster with ethanol because when you put the ethanol in the carb, the ethanol is soon not there any more (evaporates), and you're back to regular gas? So the ethanol clogs the carb up faster because it was mixed with the gas, but it's not any more, and you've returned to the "better" "pure" gas?

Just want to make sure I'm understanding the science of this correctly!

What about reducing the likelihood of fuel freezing in extremely cold weather?

Admittedly it's a minor benefit, but my understanding is that the addition of ethanol gives considerably more margin before problems occur than with gasoline alone.

I've seen frozen fuel lines with e-10,

ethanol for some reason doesn't seem to work the same as isopropyl or methanol

How cold does it get over there? We complain if it drops below 10 degrees celsius (50F).

International Falls Minnesota average lows Dec-Jan is around -20 C. Key West Florida lows are around 19-20 C for the same months. We got it all.

Non ethanol has locator

Found this website, lists non ethanol gas stations by city/state; doesn't appear to list all of them in my area, but definitely has some I didn't know about, looks like a great reference tool.

no, ethanol makes it worse, notice that drygas is never made from ethanol, only isopropyl or methanol, ethanol attracts enuf water to make it more likely to freeze
