What ethenol does to custom paint

Why ethenol, Bad, Bad, Bad

What, Why, When,
WHAT is the reason for ethenol?
WHY was this done?
WHEN did we vote this in?

I can't understand why we have something that is suppose to be better for the enviorment. Is put into effect.. And you have to use more of it to do the same job.

Gas Milege goes down 20 to 35 %

If this was done for the enviorment than WHY
does it but more emissions in the air.

I think our goverment has to much power. I didn't get a say in the ethenol being mandated..
We didn't get to vote on it.

As you can see from the pictures. This was 3 DROPS of ethenol on this tank. In seconds this was the damage.

THis stuff is like laquer thinner. IT EATS PAINT. And almost everything else it touchs!

And you have to use more gas than you normally would. To go get the clear regular to put in yhour lawn. 8 bucks for gas in your vehicle and 8 bucks for the lawn mower. NOW that makes alot of sense.

Bad idea Bad stuff, Just plain Bad

I live in a small town in Mn. We have an ethenol plant. I find it odd that a large number of houses have peeling paint in the same manner. Any evidence on ethenol fumes and house Paint?

Some of this wonderful gas was left on my tank for a few minutes, right around the filler. didn't think anything of it until I went to wipe it up and all the clear began to bubble around the filler! I quickly wiped it off but too late, clearcoat gone

HEMP is the answer our politicians are intentionally obtuse. That is what they excel in. We could create thousands of jobs and industries in one year. Don't reelect anyone who is not in favor of legalized HEMP.

This junk just filtered into my area, my first tank of it had the car coughing and sputtering. I agree we need to help the environment, but this stuff just is not the solution! Now thanks to the ethanol nazis, we get worse fuel for the buck.

Why Salem likes ethanol: ethanol=reduced gas mileage=more fuel consumption=more revenue from gas taxes.

The govoner and Salem cronies have placed this on the people of Oregon BEFORE any knowledge of the consequences with the use of this product. Let's vote...Let's not be forced to use a product that does more harm than good!!!

The idea and presentation of Bio-Fuel leaves me to feel that our government is "bipolar"! They act upon a theory like a furnace when fueled, then go into a low ebb resembling "woops" what is wrong but staying the course so as to calm our desperation

Why can't we the US. get over all the stuff on hemp. Hemp seed oil is the best answer,it You even get more oil per acre than corn, and its clean burning, and no engine damage. This is what Dr.Diesel developed his (DIESEL) engine. was HEMP OIL,

I agree! To much acreage is being dedicated to produce crops for bio fuel. These decisions are going to have very long lasting affects. What I don't understand is why more technology was not researched to produce energy that was cheaper and cleaner.

ya we are having shortage of corn. so know they will plant more. then we will be short of other crops. not good are goverment is making us go down hill fast .
