Yeah, I figured I'd warn you guys about this stuff. Especially after 2 gas station owners got caught using the 15% ethanol gasoline without changing the 10% ethanol content stickers on their pumps. They were getting desperate for gasoline due to the fact they didn't want pay the extra money that they charge for usual 10% ethanol gasoline and they hadn't paid their monthly fuel bills either didn't help at all. You see, they deliver fuel often, but the owners have to pay a bill about once or twice a month via direct deposit from an account set up for that paticular station. These 2 guys I'm talking about are now looking at federal prison time.

Here not all stations have to do the 10%, and you can usually tell the 100% gas stations because they are like 5-10 cents more expensive...But sometimes gas stations will put the 10% stickers out of plain view and jack their prices up so they are selling E10% for 100% gasoline prices...Thats sinister.
