Ethanol is cheaper plus Roch is close to Iowa. Basically Ethanol is a filler so companies can make more money per gallon, it makes sense!

Brazil uses ethanol there's nothing wrong. You can run half ethanol / half gas, just need a kit and possibly retune. I'm just gonna wait til summer then take out my sandbags to get my 23 MPGs back. I'm getting 17 MPGs now.

Parker, my buddy used to have a 1990 F-350 Crew Cab, Long Bed, 7.5 V8. He got 7 MPGs city and 14 Highway! Still I would drive just to listen to the motor again!
