I agree IF E15+ fuel is allowed to be offered then the fuel should be labeled as potentially harmful to vehicles that use it. And that it's use may void the Manufacturers warranty OR lessen the life of the vehicle's motor and fuel system. I would also ask that pumps that dispense fuel be active blenders and have different hoses for blended fuels and pure petroleum product. In other words, they blend at time of sale. They have a specific tank just for the alcohol. That way IF we want a pure 93 octane petroleum fuel we can get it. If we want an E85 fuel we can get it. Lastly, let me say that using a food farmer/crop lands for fuel production is just plumb dumb. Food prices went up since we started the E10 fiasco and have never gone down. We don't need alcohol blends anymore, we are awash in our own petroleum resources. the time for Exx fuel is past.
