E15 gasoline is dangerous for use in air cooled motorcycle engines and in many cases automobile manufacturers will not honor their warranties if a consumer is using E15 gasoline. So why in the world would the EPA EVER mandate that E15 be introduced into the market?! This is completely ludicrous! I understand that the government is subsidizing the corn industry with record dollar amounts, but this is a fuel source that is not even cost effective to produce, and add the fact that it can damage a motor, this makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I have contacted my Congressmen, but feel stronger action is needed. More research needs to be accomplished before you ram this down our throats without the population having a voice. Remember, you work for the people.. not the farming industry, not the special interest groups, lobbyists, or anyone else who has a vested interest in this matter. Thank you for your time and consideration.
