Approve it? Hell his crew are the ones that wanted it in the first place and it's already for sale. All major auto manufacturers said your warranty is VOID if you have problems using it in a car that is not designated flex-fuel. Some places have E15, E30, and E85.

They should be putting drillers back to work instead of screwing around with this ridiculous crap. EPA says it's safe for 2001+ vehicles but the manufacturer will void your warranty if you use it. I can just smell the lawsuits coming over this one.

I remember when gasohol came out in the 70's. I used it in my '79 Caprice and it cost me a small fortune to replace almost all fuel system parts from the pump to the carb. I didn't do that again.

E-15 is a further EPA politically motivated decision to placate the corn-related agricultural sector, the ethanol industry, and those Washington, D.C. politicians who are responsible for such decisons and can write off their resulting ruined vehicles and repairs at taxpayer expense. Garbage-ahol E-15 also means further reductions in fuel mileage which means more gallons consumed and more fuel tax revenue to the feds and states. It is possible to suspect that this all is some sort of plot . . .

In the Netherlands we simply unmask the ratio and show the people how ridiculous the plan is. A bit like CO2, melting ice caps, acid rain, phosphate in washing powder, and the like.

Nice lobby of those 'green terrorists', not so good for the rational person, neither for a state. Since those revelations, support for green parties have plummeted in this country. From about 15% to now a bit over 3%. Still too large, but the ratio has came back into discussion.

And quite frankly, did you know that it takes an electrical car to be driven for at least 30K miles per year as economically as possible for 7 years in row to be better for climate then a normal car?

And that they recently tested on large scale leased 'green' cars and how fuel economically the persons driving it where?
1 person drove it with an MPG of 20! But there was also a guy who miraculously did 225 MPG, mainly due to very smart planning, maximizing use of the (very limited) battery power and driving fairly short distances (never over 30 miles).
Conclusion also which was really devastating for the battery powered cars: Radius is that limited that normal everyday use really isn't working with battery power only. It was only 25% of what was claimed by companies.

You think Obama really cares, when he has someone do all his driving. Think about it, Mitt Romney was seen pumping his own gas two days after the elections. I bit Obama can not remember the last time he pump his own gas. Yea, I know he is president, which sometimes put them out of touch.

I believe in safety, education, and enforcement, not banning, ignorance, and blame.
