Pretty alarmist, IMO, but possible.

Wow...I had no idea...well, fwiw I was big on Ethanol cuz it's cheaper here...then I find out it's cheaper cuz it's subsidised, then I find out it's noticeably worse on gas mileage...

...I'm trying to get everyone I know not to use the shit. Ethanol=crapola.

Crude closed up .49 again today @ 108.83.

Looks like $110 a barrel will be sooner than I thought.

I wonder if it's just the blend they use up there or whatever. I know they have all kinds of different blends for different areas...maybe we get the shitty mileage blend since it's subsidized...

None avaliable east of Sask as far as I know. The fuel we get here in Newfoundland I think is "Seawater" pumped stright outa the Atlantic ocean, and run through a coffee filter.

I'm pretty sure it's not the same gas. I get 2-3 MPG better using the regular unleaded than the ethanol. Which is weird the ethanol is higher octane...I would have figured it would be better on mileage, but the proof is in the numbers...
Ethanol is not as efficient as plain gasoline.

Washington requires the stickers and about 99.999% of all of the stations are 10% (I've never seen E95, or whatever it is, around here). There is a cardlock station in town that offers "no ethanol" gas. I use it in my lawn mower and snow thrower tractor. It's more expensive though, so I don't use it in the cars.

We got a fresh shipment from Libya this morning, so gas just went up 5 cents, to $3.94.

Oh, is that the excuse they're using this time? I thought maybe there was a thunderstorm somewhere.
