California is the craziest liberal state in the union, i believe they actually use 57 different blends to conform with the wide range of laws in that state.

I thought winter blend used more ethanol which uses corn. Corn priced will go through the roof with the low production because of no rain.

This is Obama's fault. Why are we giving America's greatest Hoax a pass on this?

It is proven that blended gasoline reduces fuel economy. Reduced fuel economy means more fill ups. More fill ups means more pollution.

E10 3-4% drop in MPG
E85 10-15% drop in MPG

Gotta love the idiocy of CA.
