You know, and we’re all are on bicycles, or better yet walking everywhere like in Europe.
Hey, it’s on the way – it’s happening now!
They want to rid the planet of fossil fuel and have pimped the government into paying farmers to grow corn to make a substitute fuel called Ethanol.
The process has begun; it’s being added to gasoline at filling stations and our engines are starting to rot and rust from within. Ethanol attracts moisture and turns to a corrosive substance. It rots the fuel pump, rusts gas lines, and clogs up the engine’s fuel delivery system.
So now the car won’t run.
Ethanol is worthless – it’s not even energy efficient, it uses more energy to make than it produces– and it’s causing billions of dollars in damages to cars, boats, lawn mowers, weed eaters, power washers and about just every gasoline powered engine it is put in.
They’re trying to keep this a secret but the EPA and Congress know they screwed up.
Quik Trip is trying to protect itself from possible billion dollar lawsuits by offering “Ethanol Free” gasoline at its pumps. They know what the deal is.
Why am I writing this?
Because two of my practically brand new power mowers, a weed eater and power washer would not run after being stored this past winter. Funny thing; the small engine repair shop said my mowers had bad crank shafts and the weed eater wasn’t even worth fixing.
All because I left some gasoline in them all winter.
They alerted me to the Ethanol Epidemic.
My classic car collection is another story.
Each car requires that the gas tank be removed, cleaned and coated and gas sender, fuel pump and lines be replaced. And that doesn’t even include the carburetors or fuel injectors…let alone the tow bill.
Lexus and most car companies I know will not include these repairs in their warranties, I’m told. Added to all that, Ethanol reduces the efficiency and mileage up to 40% in some cars.
The bottom line: We all should stop buying gasoline with Ethanol in it and complain to our congressmen.
They do work for us still, don’t they?
