    sometimes manufacturer recommendations is completely wrong. Toyota told me to change my oil at 10k, but it was a brand new car so I needed to change it after 1k cause of aluminum pieces that might be in the engine from first time wear.

    I juts don't like the fact that greenies are controlling the car regulation world. Why not put someone in charge of the EPA that actually knows stuff about cars?

    Greenies? In case of E15 more like corn lobby.

    I thought it was because there is more involved than just cars.

    In the racing world of top fuel dragsters we use methanol and it requires twice as much by volume as it does gasoline to go the same distance. You have to use 1.5 times more ethanol to go the same distance as gasoline. Pure physics at work.
