As far as the labeling on the fuel pumps, I think the label should include a large print warning on the ethanol fuel pumps that ethanol fuels will cause harm, damage and possibly destroy your engine and fuel systems! We all know that ethanol fuel is not good for the environment nor is it any good for most vehicle fuel systems and engines. Why does the government continue to force us to use ethanol in our fuels? Where I live it is not even an option to purchase non-ethanol fuels. I have to drive a long distance just to purchase fuel without ethanol in the gasoline for my lawn, garden and recreational vehicles. Where are we helping out the environment when I have to make special trips just to purchase ethanol free fuels? If you are going to continue to use food for fuel, at least allow us to make the choice on if we want to use ethanol in our fuel or just use regular fuels in our privately owned equipment and vehicles!
