For some of the latest information on E10 and E85, as well as info on what your state/county requires or has volunteered for, go to

www.epa.gov/otaq/rfg/whereyoulive.htm (http://www.epa.gov/otaq/rfg/whereyoulive.htm)

and surf around. Be sure to also look at the links in the top blue bar under the title "Reformulated Gasoline".

I see that the EPA doesn't say anything about the big hit they took when Alaska whipped them in an MBTE lawsuit that involved people keeling over in the streets from breathing that shit. A try at E10 resulted in about 10% of the cars sitting alongside the roads disabled in subzero weather. That went away as well.

It is kind of funny. NASA released a 10,000 page report on ethanol use as a fuel. It was not at all good. One thing to note is the number one byproduct is formaldahyde, that is what they pump in you after death. Know to cause incredible hallucinations, blindness, forms of insanity and death. Not a good thing to be breathing in during a traffic jam when you are already pissed off.

Not sure if this is connected to what you are talking about dkozloski, "keeling over in the streets."

In extreme cold weather the ECM of most cars commands such a rich mixture that raw fuel comes out the exhaust. Measurements taken at intersections with traffic signals showed toxic levels of MTBE and other chemicals. What prompted the measurements was public complaints of mental confusion and other symptoms of hydrocarbon poisoning. It was particularly affecting pedestrians.
