Finally something I can't agree with Trump about, increased ethanol in gasoline. Terrible stuff in gasoline.

He must be impeached. He has stepped out of line and now all of his decisions have been rendered bad and anti-American. Away with him and let's get a good president.

I disagree with this decision. Every now and then I spend the extra and purchase ethanol free gas and I feel like my truck runs better and gets better gas mileage without ethanol. I haven't done a close study of this and it may just be placebo.

I had a similar thought... good for corn farmers, but few others.

Don't think so- I can't find it right now but there was a published paper back when ethanol gas was just coming out saying that 10% ethanol gas reduced mileage of the average vehicle by 10-12%. So it may be a tad cheaper and cleaner, but the extra consumption deletes any advantage I see with it.

I've had to clean, rebuild or replace the carbs on all of my small engines. It stinks.

Feinstein can't understand why Trump won't accept her recommendations, for lower court judges. :confused5 :confused5

Maybe her demetia has blocked her memory. I know she couldn't seem to remember, if she had leaked Ford's identity to the media. :headscratch

It's a boobdongle. It doesn't reduce fossil fuel use blended with gasoline because of the lower fuel efficiency. The best thing the federal government could do is get rid of the subsidies, tax credits, and the renewable volume obligation. So it probably won't happen.

There was an interesting interview with the President on 60 Minutes yesterday.

Worth a look in case you missed it....
