You shouldn't run ethanol on an engine that wasn't designed for its use. My $.02 . If anyone here uses ethanol on their motor vehicles for going green, then I would gladly revoke your man card ;)

I will say it definitely damages fuel systems though, Ducati had to replace my 848 tank already because of this...

I actually work for CARB of the Cal EPA, so I have a pretty good handle on fuels and all that jazz.... As such, I cannot really comment one way or the other in terms of my personal opinion of ethanol in fuel. I can say that I was not really thrilled at having to deal with Ducati USA and Ducati Italy for over a month to get my 848 Nicky tank replaced..... Fun that was not.

The nearest one of those is 162 miles from my house. Probably not worth the effort.....

what's card lock station? :O
Some gas stations place a hold for the mean gas purchase amount on every card run and actually run the card at a later point in time.
Just a guess.

Agreed. We move at a positively glacial pace!!!
Slow to remedy bad past decisions, but no problem is rushing in stuff without thinking about it. For example, the famous MTBE mandate......... another shining example of California BS.

Let's add something to the gas that penetrates the aquifers, gets into ground water supplies, raises gasoline prices, etc.... and only retract once the public finds out and raises a fuss.

In one known instance, the city of Santa Monica spent nearly $200m to clean up wells contaminated with MTBE.
