Uh, no thanks.

Speaking of E-gas, could that be a cause of the diaphragm in my Stihl chainsaw being cracked, broken, half way around?

E10 ate my sons weed eater. Since the gov't mandated the e-10, shouldn't they have to pay for all the damage its causing? Is this whats called "change"?

I guess there is no octane shortage - like 120 for pure ethanol - which is I guess why the planes with the proper engine to take advantage of that will like it - still, gotta carry almost twice the volume of fuel

ethanol is so inGRAINed into our government - no point in even thinking of crusading against it - I have been doing so for 15 years at work as part of my job and then in retirement after 2002 - to absolutely no avail - all the pols live the stuff - I veen like it in some drinkable forms

Then again, no point in being pessimistic - it probably wouldn't work anyway
