Fuels containing UP TO and including 10% ethanol or otheroxygenates with up to 2.8% oxygen by weight (that is, 15% MTBE or 3% methanolplus an equivalent amount of co-solvent) will not void the applicable enginewarranties for my vehicle. That is good news I suppose.
Field experience has indicated significant differences in fuel quality(volatility, composition, ADDITIVES, etc.) among gasolines offered for sale inthe United States. The use of poor-quality fuels results in driveability,starting and stalling problems, especially under certain environmentalconditions such as high ambient temperature and high altitude.
How do I know if the fuel I am buying is 10% Ethanol or LESS as required by myvehicle owner's manual? The fact is I don't and what is more frustrating isthat I do not have the choice to purchase a fuel that does not contain harmfulfuel alcohols. Add to that the extra cost incurred because I have to buy 98 RONfuel just to ensure I do not drop below the 95 RON requirement that my enginemanufacturer has prescribed.

I want the choice to buy 100% fuel, not 90% fuel and 10% alcohol at the 100 %fuel price.

My engine is a 355 cc for a 1984 camero.  This engine is not fuel injected and iscarborated.  The increased ethanolcontent has severally damaged my performance, caused lots of maintenance issuesand has forced me to fill up more often then i should have to.

I've lost a minimum of 6 mpg on the highway and 10mpg in town driving with the ethanol gas. This seems to be economically counterproductive.

While on our website, be sure to sign this Ethanol-Free Fuel Choice Petition, if you have not already done so.  http://www.fuel-testers.com/fuel_choice_petition_2011.html 

We will be accepting responses until sometime in 2012...
