Default Re: Ethanol killing small engines

ugh. I hate that stuff.

All that mandate is doing is DECREASING out fuel efficiency. Ethanol is only 70-80% as efficient as gas, so obviously you need to pump more of it into the motor to get the same energy production.

I've heard people saying that when they run their "flex-fuel" vehicles on E-85, they get the worst gas mileage ever.

I just love blind mandates. Can't wait till the "XX% of new cars in 20XX have to be hydrogen-powered" mandate. That'll be a fun one to deal with.
