Exactly right Alan, When i wrote to the EPA about E15, i said that lots of ppl have pre 2000 cars and trucks, using increased levels of ethanol will cause more pollution as older vehicles degrade. In addition all vehicles will suffer poorer fuel economy, as increased ethanol has less btu content. Their response was basically, SCREW YOU, WE DON'T CARE, and it pretty obvious the people at the EPA have forgotton what EPA stands for. Enviromental Protection Agency !

So what can we do if we have older cars and trucks? Does anyone know if any of the anti-ethanol products work?
