Ethanol Facts

This past month, I conducted a few tests of gasoline from different pumps and came across some surpristing information. Lately, the talk has been that there is too much ethanol in our fuel. Will E-15 hurt my automobile’s engine? Why is ethanol being used to blend gasoline to get an octane reading of 87.

I can’t speak to the octane number, but some samples from a couple of pumps reported ethanol percentages of 8 and 9%.  So in fact, maybe gasoliine does not even have 10% as the pumps indicate. Maybe the signs should say Ethanol 10% or lower. Maybe, we are making too big a deal out of this whole Ethanol Percentage thing.

Check out this video on the 40 Facts about Ethanol and stay abreast of the latest changes.
