While using E10 for the last 20+ years I can report exactly 0 ethanol related failures in my lawn and snow blower equipment.

The answer has to be YES.

Our government has long realized that 90% of us or so aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer, hence the ethanol mix in our fuel. If there were a way to legally avoid telling us about ethanol blends, I'm pretty sure they would, just to save the headache. Nobody is harmed, jobs were created and a lot of surplus corn was put to good use.

If ethanol was a viable fuel product then government wouldn't have to ram it down our throats.

As to whether it should be "added to gas", that is something for feee citizens in a free market to decide on an individual basis.
