Not likely, unless you can prove E85 is causing damage in a specific scenario and correlate it to multiple owners. Unfortunately E85 is backed by the EPA so there will be a pretty steep uphill battle if something can be motivated to that level.I'm wondering if there could be a class action lawsuit that could cease the implementation of ethanol fuels.
The Tax credit to producers and the import tariff against importing ethanol from other countries expired in 2011. Now it's just surviving on the EPA mandate that we all use the garbage. Not me. We have planty of E0 stations in my town and that's all I use in EVERYTHING.If you take into consideration the government subsidy to produce corn for fuel it absolutely is costing us tax payers to even have E-85....
By relating our observed fuel economy to CO2 emission figures found in the EPA's Green Vehicle Guide we determined that our gasoline round trip produced 706.5 pounds of carbon dioxide. On E85, the CO2 emissions came to 703.1 pounds. The difference came out in E85's favor, but only by a scant 0.5 percent. Call it a tie. This is certainly not the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions we had been led to expect.
kind of takes most of the environmentalist talking points away, and sure you can regrow corn and not oil, but farming is not all that clean either. I live in the central valley of CA. Today i can see the sierra's, halfway through summer i wont be able to. The air quality is not due to industryFound this note worthy.
Yikes...a BUCK A GALLON? It's about .30 more per gallon for us. Unless you buy it at a marina then it's 1.00 more per gallon....that's why I fuel my boat 6 gallons at a time when it's in the slip....no way I'm paying for marina fuel.I used ethanol free gas for a couple months...when it was a quarter per gallon more. Now it is almost a buck more per gallon, and I sure as shit ain't gonna put an extra buck in habbeebs pocket just to take a stand against corn farmers and our incompetent gov't.
