Subject: Warning, Watch this video about E15 gas
E15 and E85 Gasoline blends are extremely harmful to your car's fuel system don't use it, or it could end up costing you thousands. Many major car manufacturers will not honor warranties if you do!
Watch video about E15 gas if you have a car older than 2012
With the credibility of Fox news, it's hard to take anything they say seriously.

While I'd usually agree with sly about fox news, I do agree that anything above e10 really does void a lot of cars warranties and is terrible for seals and rubber engine parts as well as corroding anything metal. I don't understand why they are pushing ethanol so much, less BTU's, less efficient

The pumps around here say 'may contain 10% or less'
That's common in many states, I believe winter blends especially. But this is what the GXP manual states:
"Gasolines containing oxygenates, such as ethers and
ethanol, and reformulated gasolines might be available in
your area. We recommend that you use these gasolines,
if they comply with the specifications described earlier. However, E85 (85% ethanol) and other fuels containing
more than 10% ethanol must not be used in vehicles that
were not designed for those fuels."

Wow. What a muddy-d up issue! Fox is trying to keep oil companies in business, AAA and AOL are trying to keep oil companies in business, the government is trying to keep ArcherDanielMidland in business, and at the end of it all is the consumer, getting all the business in the END.

I really don't care, I was just quoting the manual and personally would not experiment on our car since we plan to keep it a long time. Don't care about oil companies or the price of the super unleaded we put it. It's a dinky tank that I think we put gas in over a month ago, and it still has over half tank. Would just be a shame to go mucking up fuel systems on these nice cars, but again if folks have already been doing this, then I guess we'll just see.
