As the owner of several air cooled motorcycles, some of them older and not even designed to operate on unleaded fuel let alone ethanol blend and a number of chainsaws, tractors, and a boat with an outboard motor built in 1976 and other air cooled lawn and garden equipment I am concerned about using 10% blend ethanol in this equipment and I am terrified at the prospect of inadvertantly using a blend of more than 10%. It is my understanding that production of ethanol blend fuel is neither less expensive nor more enviormentaly freindly than petroleum based fuels. Our farm land may be better used to feed the worlds hungry
