What better way to stop a better fuel for that investment that to scare people away from it?

Ethanol blended into gasoline is a very good thing for your vehicle. The EPA has known it for years, and many others have proven it. How about entire nations?

In Brazil, whether an american car company, Japanese or European, puts out vehicles that run basically on straight ethanol. No horror stories their cars run just as long.

It's all SCARE TACTICS by those who want only petroleum used as a fuel. Ethanol has many benefits, see the link. Don't buy SCARE TACTICS. Read the link!
The facts on ethanol plain and simple.

I had never have a seal or gasket fail on me because of ethanol. So I'm asking the question again. Can you tell me how exactly is your vehicle designed that it can not run on ethanol?

OceanArcher, are you claiming that the Model T didn't have gaskets or seals?

Henry Ford designed Model T to run on ethanol. Can you tell me how exactly is your vehicle designed that it can not run on ethanol?
