Why is the EPA willing to allow 15 percent ethanol in motor vehicles while saying it will harm small engines such as lawn mowers, chainsaws, etc.?
Even gasoline with the current 10 percent ethanol has been shown to damage seals, gaskets and other parts it comes in contact with because it attracts moisture! It has been rumored that vehicle manufacturers will not warranty engines, fuel lines, etc. if higher than 10 percent ethanol fuel is used.
Yet the government approves the higher levels of ethanol. Why, since current levels have been shown to be corrosive to parts? Just to subsidize corn-producing states? One has to wonder.
