    Post Warning Not to Use E15 Gas in Your Car: FOX Business

    Someone I know sent me this video earlier today and I thought I'd pass it along.



    I think I'll look into it a bit more and get some more details on it here soon.

    Default Little more info

    This is over a year old but looks like some decent info: http://www.afdc.energy.gov/technolog...etin_1210.html

    ** One thing I caught that she said that is actually inaccurate is saying several times that phase separation is caused because ethanol is heavier than gasoline so it drops to the bottom. Ethanol when blended with the gas is not heavier. Phase separation is the process in which the ethanol molecule attracts and absorbs water molecules and the combined ethanol+water is what is heavier then gas so that combination drops to the bottom. So if you can keep water out of the fuel tank, then you're pretty safe in terms of phase separation. Closed systems like those in most newer cars normally won't have that issue. It's mostly small engines, classic cars and boats with vented fuel systems that tend to attract the most moisture. Keeping a full tank will minimize that and help keep water out.
