New Gas

Postby Cat kid » June 28th, 2003, 5:35 am

I heard an ad on the radio that Holiday(I think) was coming out with a new kind of gasoline. I think they called it E85. They said it was cleaner burning, and made here in the US. It sounded to me like a rich ethinol mix, and could decrease our dependance on the mid east.

I went to the Holiday yesterday, and it wasn't there.

Has anyone else heard of this new fuel?

I wouldnt burn that stuff if I were you. It is not good for your motor. Ethanol=Subsidy's for farmer's it has nothing to do with petroleum dependency or clean air. Want to reduce our reliance of foreign oil, elect people willing to let us drill for our own. IMHO

They sell it around here.
It's ethanol blended gas just like you heard. The car manufacturers are making cars that run on the stuff. Ford has a Taurus and Ranger that uses the stuff. They have the "FFV" (or something like that) under the insignia.
From what I've heard it make you car go 0-60 in about 6.5 minutes.

I heard that all vehicles made after 1990 can run on 85% ethinol.

I'm all for supporting farmers, I hope to be one some day. Anything that reduces the amount of oil in your car would reduce oil dependacy wouldn't it Skidood.

Where do you live slick jimmy?

I believe you mean all cars after 90 can burn 10%.There is quite a few gm's that have the E-85 option, the 5.3 in the pickups will be quite popular with the E-85 motor. The E stands for ethanol and the 85 is the percent of ethanol. You cannot burn that much product in a car safely without the option.
I have been using ethanol since 85 in our machinery, trucks, atv's, and snowmobiles of all ages down to our 57 chev. truck with no problems.

Skidood doesn't realize it but the state he lives in (Minnesota) has 10% ethanol in all of the pump gas offered. If it does not have this lable (this gas does not contain ethanol) it has at least 10%.

Not all pump gas is 10% here fast600(Fleet Farm has E-free gas for one). By the way I am all about supporting a farmer polindy. I just want free markets, not acre upon acre of corn just cuz the gov is supporting the price.

If we are willin to pay 8 bucks for a corn muffin the gov would'nt need to subsidize.
Has the producer the farmer gets the shaft.Lets say a muffin costs a buck.The farmer gets .03 cents,the muffin maker gets 70 cents to cover costs plus a profit.....that leaves the brokers gettin dam near 30 cents.Let the farmer get even a nickle of the brokers share and subsidies are a thing of the past.I pulled these #s outta my a ss, but ya get the picture.
