E15 Gasoline on Horizon

DTN -- WASHINGTON (DTN) -- Ethanol and farm groups praised an Environmental Protection Agency decision Friday to approve a higher level blend of ethanol known as E15, but the Environmental Working Group announced a campaign to discourage consumers from using it, and an Agriculture Department economist said he did not think it will win acceptance soon.
In formal terms, EPA released an evaluation of information submitted by the Renewable Fuels Association and Growth Energy for satisfying the emissions and health effects data requirements for registration of E15, gasoline containing 15% ethanol.
"This is a remarkable achievement by America's clean, renewable fuels industry, as moving to E15 results in reduced dependence on foreign oil, jobs here in America and consumer savings at the pump," accord

Etanol did not give us saving before, so why will it save us now? A ploy to get corn to be sold st high prices in addition to fuel.

Ethanol is bad news if you like your car.

It also takes more gasoline to produce the ethanol than the amount of ethanol created.

Fantastic policy!

Some of the problems with ethanol are it cost more per gallon. It takes a lot of energy to produce and in the end ethanol provides fewer BTU than gasoline so it takes more of it to do the same work. It also has undesirable by products the EPA isn’t fond of and is corrosive in high quantities.
I almost forgot the big one. It is unaffordable without government subsidizes.

The EPA says ethanol is so good, why do they use pure gas to give you the EPA miles per gallon for that new car.

If oil prices continue to rise people may be glad to use e-15, but that day is a bit far off.

Ethanol means decreased fuel economy, more damage to cars, and more harm to the environment. Yet Obama's EPA is pushing it, which can only mean he's trying to buy the votes of those who benefit from this ridiculous decision.

We can only hope that E15 never gets done and all ethanol and gas blends go away as soon as possible!!
