Some in the ethanol industry are pushing the EPA to allow a 50 percent increase in the ethanol added to your gasoline. They want you to pump first and ask questions later. The EPA shouldn’t rush to judgment. Instead, it should wait for the completion of thorough and objective scientific tests, and act to protect our safety and our environment.
Increasing hot-burning ethanol from today’s 10% (E10) to 15% (E15) could harm some engines. E15 has never been thoroughly tested to determine if it’s safe for engines in the cars, trucks, boats, lawnmowers and other outdoor power equipment used by millions of Americans every day.
