Thumbs up Alternative fuels E85

Has anybody heard of this new high octane fuel?its a blend of 85% ethanol 15% gasoline over 100 octane.its supposely being sold in Oregon,Washington,California this article is in Hot rodding may 2002 volume 42,no.5 Id definitly be willing to run this fuel from what Ive read.my opinion is there is alternative ways to make fuels but our goverment dont what to step on peoples toes or bite the hand that feeds them.anyway to get away from our foreign oil dependency.Im all for it. just wondering what every one else thinks. no response, I don't know if you're aware of it, but there's government officials that would like to see people like us extinct like the dinosaurs. No gas, no rods. I'm just a flag flying veteran american. Hope I didn't offend anybody, but Id
rather drive an oldie,or a street rod & not a Camel!or Horse and buggy or this new peice of plastic s--t Id rather walk
USA or no way

Ethanol is not being sold in California at this time. But I would buy it in a flash even if I had to adjust my cars to run on it. Whatever takes money away from the greedy American and European Oil Companies, OPEC and those Texas friends of "W" and gives the corn farmers a chance to make a buck make sense to me in Norhtern California too!

right after that article came out you saw on the news the new bill that congress passed to bump up the taxes on gas. that was to fund the switch to more alcohol in the gas. don't ask me why, i am assuming for research or refinement. seems we have way more corn laying around so it should be cheaper than gas but not so. if you read the end of the article it says detroit has been gradually making the switch to e85 and it will be everywhere in 10 years and all new cars will run on it. i've heard some negative smog stats, but all in all **** the A-rabs and lets all run on squeezins! aND SHEEIT! ITS 100 OCTANE!!

well that's just great, somehow they lost the first half of my reply above. the article about e85 was in last months popular hot rodding, by now it's off the news stands. but if you see any cars running around that say ffv, it stands for flexible fuel vehicle and they can run on any combination of alc/gas. they've been making them since like '95. all 3 makers make them now in certain models. and all will be running on alc/gas if not straight alc. by 2010

Thumbs up

about the only way to get gas prices down is for EVRY person in the USA to boycott.if everone would do this you would see taxes and fuel prices drop to pennys a gallon.but I don't think that will ever happen.so we are at the politions mercy.just my 2 cents
