No thanks. This entire idea is the DFL helping farmers get rich.

This is a scam! This stuff gunks up your vehicle's fuel system, inefficient in current engines, and it cost too much to produce.

Will consumers buy E15? Not this one.

Is the higher price of food and lower fuel economy factored into your 15-cent savings?

I'm not buying it. Don't want that junk in my gas tank and my vehicle manufacturer even warns against it. NO thanks!

It's well known that E85 significantly lowers gas mileage negating the savings at the pump. I don't see how this is any different. And its not any better for the environment when you take into account the massive amounts of water needed for ethanol production. That said, as long as there are no longer government subsidies involved, let the market work.

You get what you pay for. E15 has less energy in the formula than E10. E10 has quite a bit less than straight gasoline. Consider your mileage before you jump up and down over this. And whether your car is new enough that the fuel system won't start to spring leaks all over because of it.

I don't know of any Car manufacturer's that endorse E15. This fuel can do MAJOR DAMAGE to engines that are not designed to run on E85.

As a "car guy" all I can tell you is that if you put this crud in your tank you're a fool! Enjoy the massive repair bills associated with using gasoline that most modern vehicles are simply not designed for! The garbage could be a buck-a-gallon cheaper and not one drop of it would make it into the tanks of my vehicles!

ethanol from corn is by every metric you use to measure a utter failure. Environmentally it is a complete fraud, economically it makes no sense and it is simply not sustainable. Only lobbists and farmers benefit, everyone else gets the shaft from this fiasco
