"The AAA says the Environmental Protection Agency and gasoline retailers
should halt the sale of E15, a new ethanol blend that could damage millions
of vehicles and void car warranties. AAA, which issued its warning today,
says just 12 million of more than 240 million cars, trucks and SUVs now in
use have manufacturers' approval for E15. "

It's gonna suck because your MPG will go down another 5%, and gas prices are not going to go down because of it.
Ethanol is a big middle-finger to the Arab oil sheiks, and puts the money in the pockets of good hard-working patriotic American farmers, so I don't know why people get so hot over it...
Oh wait, I do know why: It's because you self-proclaimed "conservatives" can't stand to see ANYONE succeed. You're no better than the "liberals" you claim to be the opposite of.
The main difference between "conservatives" and "liberals" is: "Conservatives" only want *THEMSELVES* to succeed, and will manipulate the system to ensure that happens. "Liberals" want *NOBODY* to succeed, and will manipulate the system to ensure that happens.
Ethanol requires fossil fuels to plant, harvest, transport, distil. Last
time I looked, it's energy negative. Takes more energy to produce, than what
you get back.

USA spent 1/4 of what they are spending on wars in the middle east on
research to convert cellulose to ethanol, there are HUNDREDS of
reasonable feedstocks - most of which would be energy positive, which
would have little or no effect on food-grain prices. (or sugar prices,
as far as that goes)

Do the Canadians have "Affirmative Action" to gum up the works? I know
the British have a version of it know as "Positive Discrimination" which
I think is a more correct descriptive name for it because such policies
positively discriminate against the competent. O_o
