Windmills and solar was a lot of what I was talking about with billions to prop up an industry, but ethanol was heavily subsidized initially, and no conspiracy theories here (wasn't trying for a full on rant in my previous post and was generally speaking). I don't like farm subsidies either (I also believe in a flat tax with no deductions if you really want to know). The EPA is the govt but we could go for days talking about all the different govt agencies though.David

Bringing E15 to the market without adequate safeguards does not responsibly meet the needs of consumers.E15 strongly responsible for vehicle damage.Higher blend ethanol effect the fuel system,engine.Consumers should carefully read pump labels and know their auto manufacturer's recommendations to help prevent any problems from E15.warning to consumer avoid use of E15 for better vehicle performance.

Heck, one day I was waiting on my truck in the dealer service lounge, and the show "Cake Boss" was running in some marathon on the TV. Something had to be delivered all the way to Florida I think, from NYC, and the one kid was put in charge. They made it all the way down, and part of the way back, the kid was an idiot and filled the truck's tank with gas instead of diesel.
People just don't take time to think about what they're doing, or how to properly care for their cars any more. They don't check fluid levels, or even know how to check the oil for wear. They just buy a car, drive it until it breaks down, and then act so surprised when something costs them a crazy amount of money to fix, due to their own wilful ignorance of it.
Whether E-15 goes to market or not, isn't going to help that problem at all. Or even hurt it. Like the old saying goes… stupid is as stupid does.
