As someone who works in the automotive and had worked in the motorcycle and ATV industries and as an owner of older vehicles, I know that anything less than pure gasoline can damage engines, valves and seals. Besides degrading rubber and other materials that works as seals and gaskets, the combustion process is altered by the burn rates of alcohol and other additives. For many owners additional alcohol will cause extensive damage, cost and heartache. Forcing us to use even higher percentages of alcohol will put an undue tax on all of us trying to operate our vehicles and paying for the damage and time. Please stop the use of this and let the market handle what consumers need. Thank you.
