Get TuneEcu. Add +50 % fuel to all maps. Run with E85 and save Polar ice packs?

I think it's likely a good thing to petition, although the corn and ethanol lobby seems to be quite strong. Not a good reason to accept it, though. A better thing might be to oppose the presence of lobbyists and corporate money in politics. Then, a lot of shit that isn't good would go away. This might belong in the politics forum? :deal

Interesting. Are you actually doing this?

I haven't yet tried it. I'm gathering the courage to test it next summer.

My interest in keeping pure gas available is this......

I am fortunate enough to have a gas station two blocks from my house has ethanol free fuel which is the only thing I use now (unless I'm on a ride and can't help it). Extremely fortunate since I did not have this option in Charleston, SC.

Just a reminder...there is an app to help find ethanol-free gas called PureGas.

No, besides Diesel we have 2 choices of fuel at fill-up stations
1- Alcohol
2- Gasoline (contains 25% ethanol)
3- (What ?! You said 2 above!!!) Some stations have a pure gasoline option, but it is rare! Very rare! Usually stations in rich neighborhoods for folks with expensive equipment! The Brazilian national oil producer (PETROBRAS) is the only one I know of. They sell a gasoline called "podium", which is allegedly the "good gas"!

It is caused by something called ethanol (mixed with the gasoline)
