Study: New E15 gas can ruin auto engines.
Washington Examiner ^

Posted on 01/31/2013 6:08:17 AM PST by selfdefense

This week's warm Washington temperatures had some thinking about rolling the Lawn-Boy out of the garage for the first cut of the year. And we all know what that means: Difficult starts due to E10 gas that gels when it sits. Now, according to a new study, cars and truck may face the same fate thanks to President Obama's demand for a higher ethanol in the new E15 gas.

Q: What is the difference between Marine Formula STA-BIIL®, STA-BIL® Fuel Stabilizer, and the new STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment products?

A: Marine Formula STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment was designed for use at every fill up for marine engines (boats, jetskis) to protect against the damaging effects experienced when using Ethanol blended fuels — including corrosion caused by water attraction, and fuel system plugging caused by deposit loosening.

STA-BIL® Fuel Stabilizer is designed for use during STORAGE of any gasoline equipment or vehicle stored for 30 days or more, or used infrequently. It will keep gas fresh for 12 months, and help prevent corrosion, and gum and varnish formation.

New STA-BIL® Ethanol Treatment is designed for use at every fill up for all gasoline automotive and small engines for protection against these same problems.

All STA-BIL® brand products are effective in all gasolines, including Ethanol blends, including E-85.

If E15 is harmful to engines, why have the automotive and petroleum industries (and government?) allowed it to be sold? Could additives such as those mentioned in other posts solve the problem. If so, why doesn’t the E15 we receive already have the additives?

E10 is the stuff that has become commonplace, this is the proposed new blend that would increase the ethanol content (and the related problems) by 50%.

Only a fool puts ethanol or any other US Government mandated crap into their car/van/truck engine.

This link will help you find gas stations in your area that offer Marine Gas and/or 100% pure unleaded gas.

Yes, it is more expensive but it's worth it.

I can never understand why all the FReepers who complain about expensive problems with their OPE don’t do exactly as you say, or head to the local airport for some avgas.

Have you noticed the "canned" fuel mix that is now being sold in the lawn and garden section at the big-box hardware stores? In some places, it's easier to find that on the shelf than gasoline storage cans.

It is over 100 miles (one way) from my place near Houston to the nearest store claiming to sell ethanol free gasoline.

My Highlander is going to get it’s third set of oxy sensors in 85,000 miles. Is the E-10 killing them?

The two words I would use are “turbo diesel”

Mine runs my Sprinter van tirelessly at 23 mpg cruising at 70 mph. It is a real peace of work. When required it runs biodiesel just as well as the real thing.

The good stuff Walt makes is available all over the south west so I’ve heard.

Oh, yeah. Stihl dealer pushes it too. IIRC it’s like eight bucks a quart.

But for that price it’ll keep all winter! :-)

I generally never judged a book by it's cover..

However, this individual has, "scary" and "dangerous to freedom", written all over it.

She looks like something you'd expect out of a controlling homeowners association meeting...Just scary...

You know the country is screwed when people like Obama and this individual are given power...

This should be enough to make the freedom lovers in this country, recoil in shock.

You’re correct of course.

Maybe he’s talking about the “good old days” of diesels when they actually had much higher compression than gassers, could run super lean for economy at part throttle, and could ingest fuel that was considerably cheaper than gas.

Interesting that just across the La border are a bunch of them. I’m sure you know more about this than the rest of us.

Wow, that was fun! Now let's play the number game! Can you say two-thousand-one? I knew you could!

Wasn't that a blast? Okay, let's try ANOTHER number! Can you say seven-point-three? Good job!

(No DEF. No DPF. EGR, I think so but so what.)
