Ethanol producer groups and many farm organizations are doing the
happy dance today with EPAs announcement that it would deny a request
by Texas Governor Rick Perry to reduce the Renewable Fuels Standard.
Naturally, the ethanol industry was pleased with the outcome.
Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen said, We applaud
the EPA for keeping America squarely on the path toward greater energy
independence. Ethanol Promotion and Information Council executive
director Toni Nuernberg said, Todays decision is an important win
for American consumers. Ethanol is one of the few things helping
families save money. Ethanol producers like POET and Verenium also
issued statements reacting to the decision. The National Biodiesel
Board expressed its appreciation as well, since biodiesel is also a
part of the RFS. Read the rest of the article at this link:http://

Matter of fact, just this week on the local news,
there was a lawn equipment business highlighted. The
owner spoke of not being able to handle triple the
repair business he had just a couple years ago. Chalked
it up to the ethanol in gas. Recommended people make
sure they used "only pure gasoline -- no ethanol" in
their lawn and garden machines in order to avoid an
unnecessary trip to his establishement.

That should be "We applaud the EPA for keeping America squarely on the path
toward greater energy dependance"
Where I am E10 has always been 10 cents cheaper than plain unadulterated 87
octane E0 which at a current price of about $.50 for E10 and $.60 for E0
means E10 is 2.78% less expensive than E0 but contains 3.3% less energy so
by using E10 I am actually spending .52% more. Granted it isn't a huge
difference but it does matter.
