Trump to move to allow
year-round E15 gas sales

Detroit News [MI], by Keith Laing

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/9/2018 10:38:25 AM

Washington — The Trump administration is moving to allow the sale of gasoline containing 15 percent ethanol year-round, which would help farmers by increasing demand for corn, but faces opposition from environmental groups and the oil industry. President Donald Trump is expected to make the announcement ahead of a rally Tuesday in Iowa, the biggest corn-producing state in the nation. Current rules prevent the sale of fuel containing 15 percent ethanol, known as E15, during the summer because it can contribute to smog on hot days. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency cleared the use of E15 fuel for cars

Comments:
According to the article, forcing us to buy smog-producing, engine-destroying ethanol gives us freedom of choice. No word on mandating availability of ethanol-free fuels, which cost more (because unsubsidized) and can be difficult to find.

Wasting fuel and taxpayer´s money to support corn farmers. Looks like a payoff to Grassley to me.

President determined to prove that he is a politician after all, which is not good for free markets, economic growth, our wallets and most of all, common sense.

As Hotair notes, it’s not worth 15 seconds of applause from Iowa Republicans for this dumb decision.

Ethanol destroys engines. There are mechanics who refuse to work on cars that use it. This is a bad idea.

It is going to make lousy gasoline. It is also more pollution from the alcohol.
AND, I am in the oil business not the corn business.

VERY bad decision. Watch the price of non-ethanol gas skyrocket (already more expensive when you can find it) if E-15 becomes the only alternative. Most cars have a warning on the gas filler not to use E-15.

Energy poor E-15 fuel will void numerous manufacturers´ engine warranties. This is a really, really stupid move by Trump, proving that after all, he´s just a politician. I´m very disappointed in him for this. He whored out to the corn lobby. Can he change his mind?

I would favor giving farmers some sort of bonus payment to not sell their corn to ethanol distillers.
In the late 1940s, my parents had a dairy farm, grew potatoes as a side money maker.
The department of Agriculture would come in, and with 60 pound bags of potatoes lined up, pour a liquid bright green dye onto each bag of potatoes. Ag would then buy each bag of potatoes for $1.50 per bag, and sell the dyed bags of potatoes back to us for 10 cents a bag.
(The dyed potatoes were to be used to feed pigs, and could not be sold.)
We would regrade the potatoes, removing the dyed ones, selling the remainder. (the dye only reached about 10 to 15 percent of the potatoes in each bag.)
Any payments on corn/ethanol should be better designed than those potato crop support mechanisms.

To me, there´s something immoral about using a food product for gasoline. It also takes almost 600k gallons of water to produce 130 bushels of corn. We need to wean ourselves off of ethanol.

Ethanol is bad on Diesel engines but especially bad for small single-cylinder gas engines used in outdoor equipment.

If the U S must pay corn farmers monies above the market value for the product, I´d rather the corn farmers get direct subsidy payments from the Treasury than for US policy to perpetuate the ethanol-as-fuel scam. 10 percent ethanol is bad enough; 15 percent is even more destructive to combustion engine hardware and is nothing more than dollars-for-votes, with significant hidden dollars wasted on early repair and replacement.

I agree with above posters, especially 7, 16, and 17. I´m retired, with lots of amall-engine "stuff" as well as an ancient truck, all of which E15 will destroy. All of this stuff is necessary for the maintenance and upkeep of my property. At present, by driving about twenty miles and paying considerable more, I´m able to get ethanol free gas. Remember, for years farmers were paid to limit their tobacco production. Made sense. Why not the same with farmers whose livelihood depends on their corn crop?

VERY BAD idea. Payoff to corn state legislators. Votes for sale.
E15 is worse for two-cycle engines than E10. And E15 is wasteful, since diesel must be imported to grow the corn and then process it. And E10 is bad for the environment: soybean crops in the US have been replaced by corn; corn is now grown in Brazil and Argentina; these crops require clear-cutting of Rain Forests; the Rain Forests do not grow back and have no topsoil; this changes climate around the world.
Just abolish the whole Ethanol boondoggle. Gas is gas. Ethanol has a place only in race cars.
And booze.

And we are supposed to be the largest supplier of oil in the world now? How in the world does this kind of dingbat thinking enter the equation?

Does he not care how this destroys engines? How does he think that will effect many of us who are not rich like him? HMMMM???? This is blind demonrat crazy.

I think it´s pure genius. I actually heard on the radio for the first time ever today -- ethanol is bad for the atmosphere. The only reason it was said, was because PT removed Summer sales restrictions. Now the Left is stuck arguing that we should subsidize something that they´ve also argued is bad for the environment. Genius.

Police have now said they know the identity of the gunman, who is known to have a criminal record and fled the scene after a shootout, as police tried to arrest him.

An arbitration board has reversed the NYPD’s order that cops who have been stripped of their guns and shields and assigned to desk duty as they face internal disciplinary action are not eligible for overtime unless no one else is available to do their assignment.
