Default E15 Ethanol

Word recently has been spreading into large mainstream outlets like USA Today (Gannett) and Fox News about AAA coming out and advising drivers specially NOT to use the E15 fuel that is approved for sale by the government.

Not only that, but we're now hearing that virtually all of the major auto makers like Ford and Honda are now telling drivers that if they use E15, their warranties are voided.

Only 5% of vehicles are approved for E15. Ten major auto makers are telling the public they're out of luck if they use E15 and have problems. And now AAA is telling everyone flat-out "don't use it".

Above is an excerpt from an email received today and thought I'd share it. I avoid buying ethanol gas anytime possible.
