  1. If you own a gas-powered lawnmower check the warranty that came with it. Kohler and Briggs and Stratton cite E-15, E-20 and E-85 restrictions in their manuals. The warranty is voided.

  2. It may harm engines, but they shouldn’t be harmed, because drag-racers use 100% alcohol as fuel. Alcohol is very corrosive to gaskets in an engine, but those could be replaced with gasketing that is “proof-against” alcohol fuels. A gasket-failure could lead to an engine failure, if the wrong gasketing-material is used. I believe Brazil has been using alcohol in fuels for years in everyday drivers,–, much longer than our alcohol-fuel blending. I’ll bet I know what happened. A repair was done that needed an “alcohol-proof” gasket, and they didn’t have one, so the mechanic put the wrong part on the car, making the “repair” much more temporary, because the non-alcohol gasketing WILL FAIL, if used on an “Alky-motor”. The factory could have put the wrong one on, during initial assembly, so it might take a year or two for the error to show up, but show-up, it will. Alcohol dissolves regular gaskets. SCYTL’s the engine of vote fraud, imo, for 2012, as it is vunerable to hacking-into. Spain should NOT “control” USA elections, imo, and yet it could, this fall, to our ruin.

  3. E10 has hurt engines over here for a few years now. (We still have normal fuel available at each gas station. Gas stations are obliged to offer E10. So the engines aren’t really hurt.) What happened next: the Greenies said
    – It wasn’t us. We only demanded CO2 emissions to be reduced. We didn’t say it shall be done this way. It was the non-green party who made the green politics. The damage is not due to the reduction but how the reduction was aimed to achieve.
    And then he(Juergen Trittin) went on to propose to reduce speed limits to ridiculously low speeds. And claimed, well this would cause no damage.

  4. “API represents more than 500 oil and natural gas companies, leaders of a technology-driven industry that supplies most of America’s energy, supports 9.2 million U.S. jobs and 7.7 percent of the U.S. economy” 92.3 percent of the US economy is not dependent on oil or natural gas? I guess the population of hillbillies is much larger than anyone thought.
