[DML] Re: Ethanol in Gasoline

I predict you will see a lot of changes in what we call gasoline in
the future. As it gets more and more expensive the manufacurers and
the government will find all kinds of things to put in it. Already new
cars must be able to accomodate things that were not even known about
in 1981. Unfortunately it will be necessary to upgrade older cars to
be able to use the new fuels. Aviation has had problems like this for
some time. It will only get worse. The Delorean vendors will have to
offer upgraded components for those of us in areas where these blended
fuels ares sold and drivers have no choice but to put that cr-p in
their cars. For the most part these blends will be less effiecint but
less polluting (at least that is how they try to stick us with it).
What is really going on is the gas companies make even more money on
additives and the farmers get big subsudies. That is why you see most
of the ethanol in the mid-west now. Expect it to come to your area
soon. As for me, I am looking seriously at the hybrids for my next
daily driver.
