Re: Stihl power equipment and ethanol "enhanced" gas

What mandate is there for any ethanol in gasoline? Or is this just a bash the president thing?

I buy ethanol free gasoline here in WA, better for the cars and garden equipment, hardly costs anything more than regular. Get a few more mpg too.

Probably if you really want to know something about anything try google.

Actually the next layer of inertia on ethanol use is the Renewable Fuels Act.

So 30% of the country requires oxygenate fuel and then the RFA requires renewable fuel to boot.

"•EISA increased the volume of renewable fuel required to be blended into transportation fuel from 9 billion gallons in 2008 to 36 billion gallons by 2022;" wow, there goes decently priced food!. there's a shortage of feedstock already, most of it is used to make ethanol!!. a large portion of our food is sold to other countries, they'll need to stop that.

Ethanol biofuel (and HFCS via tariffs on sugar) is nothing more than a handout to corporate corn farmers.

That's is absolutely the reason with the added "buying of votes".
