Re: [DML] Ethanol in Gasoline

I'm wondering if several responses to this question were from areas that are 
or were using M.T.B.E. instead of ethanol. This would attack rubber more 
than ethanol. I only have my own experiance to reflect on but I recently 
removed the fuel tank components which had almost 90,000 miles on them. They 
were all in very good condition and I've used ethanol in my car many many 
times. I acknowledge that I never let the car sit for long periods with it 
in the tank and the ethanol was always used on  road trips where the fuel 
moved through the system every day or two. I guess what I'm saying is there 
isn't any problem with a 10% ethanol mix if the car is being driven 
consistently, like on a road trip. Many times we have no choice when 
refueling on the road. The problem down the road is politicians are planning 
( it's already on the books for 2012 in Minnesota ) to go to a 20% ethanol
