E15 gas

"BMW, Chrysler, Nissan, Toyota and VW have said their warranties will not cover fuel-related claims caused by E15. Ford, Honda, Kia, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo have said E15 use will void warranties."

E-10 is bad enough. The ethanol industry's Renewable Fuels Association and the National Corn Growers Association special interests together with the EPA aren't really bothered about engine damage caused by E-15 since they won't pay for any needed repairs. E-15 also will somewhat further reduce fuel mileage. We should be OK as long as the EPA and state governments don't shove E-15 down our throats by mandating its use in place of E-10. The EPA "tests" of E-15 are suspect since the outcome quite possibly was pre-determined.

Why was this posted so many times? Hopefully the moderators will consolidate the posts.

I very well could be wrong but was thinking not all members view off topic and say someone with a 2003 would not look at the 4.1 section so I posted in every section.

This subject is not vehicle specific, so it is better suited for an off topic discussion.

Thanks.
