E15 Gas Approved by Obama's EPA Slammed by AAA – Carmakers Will Not Honor Warranties
January 2, 2013E15_1

AAA is calling for suspension of the sale of E15.

Lauren Fix, the “car coach,” from AOL Auto makes these points:

• E15 is approved by the EPA and being pushed by the Government. AAA says do not use it.

• There wasn’t a lot of testing done on E15

• E15 is 15% ethanol. E-85, also in gas stations is 85% ethanol. Both E15 and E-85 are fine for flex-fuel vehicles, but there are few of them on the streets. E15 and E-85 are a danger to all other vehicles, and you risk your warranty being voided.

• There is “phase separation” when the ethanol merges with gasoline at the pump. The ethanol is heavier and goes to the bottom of the gas tank. The vehicle draws the ethanol first. Ethanol is so corrosive that it damages fuel systems and engines. When the ethanol is gone, the gasoline is drawn. There is proof that it damages fuel lines, emission systems and engines.

• Companies which manufacture fuel lines say they have brand new vehicles with rotted-out fuel systems.

• E15 Destroys Gaskets due to the corrosiveness of ethanol

• E15 is made 3 octane levels lower, 87 octane is actually 84 octane – which damages your engine because it “detonates.”

• A lot of money is changing hands. Corn subsidies are huge.

• Farmers are growing more corn fewer other agricultural products, so groceries are going up. Remember the skyrocketing price of tortillas in Mexico? Consumers will be hurt badly in severa areas.

• E15 is highly corrosive – so corrosive it has to be distributed to the gas stations in stainless steel tanks.

• From E15, you get less than one-third-energy per-gallon of gasoline that has ethanol in it compared to regular gasoline that doesn’t have ethanol. In otherwords, you go a shorter distance using ethanol. It means you are filling up at the pump more often, and you risk costly damages to your engine.

• E15 may appear to be cheaper, but it’s not and you risk costly repairs and a voided warranty.

I join you in telling him to get the hell out of the USA. We don't want him. He doesn't even have the right to express himself as far as I'm concerned. His sole purpose was to get on here and stir up a stink. He can take his homo self and scat!

Do you have comprehension issues? you make this about me. Did you forget that over 52% of Americans agree. Did Obama win with 5% of the vote? wake up. Another point you can't seem to grasp, I said that since 2008 I love this Country. Do you think I'm trying to change it? I'm flattered, honestly. No my friend the President is changing it and the MAJORITY of Americans are with him. Why do you make this about me? I am very proud to be living here, I feel like I'm here for the rebirth of America. Since 2008 America has become very popular amongst the youth of Europe, people welcome this great land to the party. When I saw the news footage of UN peacekeeping troops drilling on American soil along side American troops my heart was full. President Obama traveled to Europe and apologized for American past behavior and the room erupted, louder cheers then any rock concert could dream of making. You are very very wrong, I love this Country! I talk with friends and family overseas and tell them about the changes going on here. It is a very exciting time. The UN is now again relevent and I give 100% credit to President Obama and Secretary Clinton (the next President).
News flash obama bought the vote with all the people on welfare or anybody that he has help. These people didn't vote for him because because it was what's best for america they voted for him for what they could get from him(welfare checks, food stamps, never ending unemployment checks and let's not forget his free obama phones etc.). Unlike you I'm proud i was born in america and our founding fathers had it right. They knew what they were doing. Your precious Obama doesn't have a clue. It's people like you that want to change it into europe. You have no clue how to be american. We love our freedoms, There is nothing wrong with being free. I do not want the government telling me what to do. You are one of the biggest idiots on here you even make Barney and Don't nothin nothing look good. I believe they are americans like me who would like to send you back to france. You insult all of us americans with your soicalist ideas. I do not want the U N over here they need to keep their noses in their own business. Obama(he has no backbone, he's a wuss, our milatary has more backbone than he does) was wrong when he went on his apology tour, it made me completely ashamed of him we have done nothing to apology for. We are the peacekeepers of the world. Who does the world call on when they are in trouble- the U S A. Obama is screwing america up, he's got us so deep in debt. Credit agencies are threating to downgrade us. But you think he's the greatest thing on the planet. No i'm not you friend and I'm not the one who needs to wake up and if you think it's absolutly wonderful living under a socialist government please go back to france and you can take obama with you. Besides we want to get rid of somebody that's too lazy to work and that likes to drain the system. Go to france and get you welfare there.

I get your frustration, but you make so many unsupported & judgmental assertions I wonder if they are factual or just perceptual. The real problem lies not so much in the welfare system as in the disparity & bureaucracy that underpins our current economic system (esp. in places like AR where the min. wage is 4th lowest in the nation). I would wager that no one comes of age dreaming of the day when s/he can finally qualify for a few hundred $ worth of food stamps or similar benefits. Given the oppt'y, reasonable individuals prefer to (at min) earn a living wage, & (at best) earn enough to indulge some of their wants as well as their basic needs. I have occasionally contemplated returning to El Dorado. Imagine my shock when routine searches turn up jobs that I know will barely keep my head above water. I have seen announcements for jobs that require, college degrees, special skills, several years of work experience, etc. and pay in the neighborhood of $1,500 to $2,000/mo. Adjusting for taxes, rent/mortgage, utilities, car payment, home/auto/med insurance, fuel, childcare, groceries, work wardrobe, etc., the worker-- no matter how motivated or well-intended-- will likely end up in the red. Factor in intangibles like reduced discretionary time, personal stress, cronyism, nepotism,'good ol' boy', and other office politics, and it's not an attractive proposition. Regardless of one's personal value system, it is very disheartening to give it your all 40+ hrs/week, and STILL not be able to make ends meet. When one considers that so many of the jobs in El Dorado are not even F/T, the picture is gloomier still. From such a perspective, it's not so hard to understand why some SETTLE for social welfare benefits. I know people who lost their jobs in the recession and were treated like scum because they dared to claim unemployment benefits for which they'd paid into 'the system' for 20-25 yrs. Imagine going from earning six or eight grand/mo to receiving $300-$400/wk that won't even cover your house payment, all the while having presumptuous people look down their noses at you for being "lazy, trifling and shiftless'. Imagine facing the dilemma of accepting or rejecting the first low-paying job that comes along, knowing it will both render you unavailable to look for more suitable work, skew your salary history, and ensure that you won't be able to meet your current expenses that were based on a substantially higher income. As far as disability goes, it takes a lot of players to scam that system. Perhaps we should reserve some of our vitriol for the doctors and lawyers who profit from encouraging and supporting fraudulent claims as well as the obviously inept administrators who approve them. What is "wrong and immoral" is that ANYONE should HAVE to work 2-3 jobs at all. Some of this is attributable to employers who also game the system by hiring only P/T workers to avoid providing benefits, paying certain workers (like wait staff) a fraction of the minimum wage, encouraging high turnover in low-skilled jobs to keep certain costs down, etc. These "broken" social welfare programs underwrite their bottom line by lowering their costs of doing business. As a business owner, I would hope that your concern is an indication that you are part of the solution and not the problem. Best.
I assume from your post that you live in either more of a metropolitan area or in an area with a lower percentage of welfare recipients. People do dream of becoming lifetime welfare recipients because the system isn't set up to teach any of them to actually succeed. The welfare way is passed down from generation to generation as a way of life. You may not want to admit it but it's true because I talk to the individuals and I see how much effort they put into pretending like they are helpless. They have even asked my wife to lie for them so they could continue to get free money. They don't even try to hide it.

Infighting has penetrated the highest levels of the House GOP leadership. Long-standing geographic tensions have increased, pitting endangered Northeastern Republicans against their colleagues from other parts of the country. Enraged tea party leaders are threatening to knock off dozens of Republicans who supported a measure that raised taxes on the nation's highest earners.

Don't worry, if you agree to a full frontal lobotomy, Obama will let you keep .22's and .410's at your local police station for check-out.

Wait......I think you've already been processed...try to remember now, only only one lobotomy per person.

Obama will never be satisfied until he puts in place for America the dreams of his absentee father he has idolized. That dream is to equalize everyone. Take from the rich and spread the wealth around.

He also holds the European model to which America should aspire. It doesn't seem to matter to him that all of Europe is about to go bust. However,, I have entrained the idea that breaking America might be his goal since common sense dictates that a country cannot continue to spend more than it takes in plus every 46 cents of every dollar is borrowed. A household would go bankrupt ran in this manner and America will, too. Will China one day call in its debt? Who knows for sure?

As to the guns; the UN is for taking up the guns. The plan is disarm the peasants. They don't really know most Americans. Do they?

President Obama has signed into law $1.7 trillion in deficit reduction and this week’s action further reduces the deficit by $737 billion, making it one of the largest deficit reduction bills passed by Congress in over a decade. He also says he is willing to do more.

As to the guns;

That is just B.S. as well.

So, why does the deficit keep going up and why did the CBO say this is going to add to the deficit? If you were half as smart as you tell everybody you are, you'd still be an idiot.
