Please reconsider your intentions on allowing widespread distribution of E15 gasoline at retail gas stations. The effects of E10 are difficult to deal with on older engines. The use of E15 fuels will void the warranties of many gasoline engines and cause massive havoc and expense for owners. We need a long term goal of using food (corn) for feeding people and livestock, not powering our vehicles. Many other technologies offer greater benefits and efficiencies than turning corn into alcohol and mixing it with gasoline. This represents a 1990s technological approach. The E15 approach benefits corn growers at the expense of everyone else. Thank you for your consideration.
