SAY NO TO E-15 FUEL - GET THE FACTS

By vegavairbob

Government studies show, at higher blend levels ethanol’s chemical properties cause corrosion, reduce fuel economy, burn hotter and can wreak havoc with fuel mixtures and injectors.
The Historic Vehicle Association (HVA) strongly opposes ethanol mandates and subsidies.
Ed Syrocki—owner of EMS Classic Car Care in Warren, Michigan has taken up the charge of HVA's EthaNO campaign to educate historic vehicle owners about the damage ethanol fuel is doing to their engines. From cracked and damaged fuel system parts to corroded gas tanks, Syrocki’s ethanol presentations give a detailed look under the hood that the HVA believes every historic vehicle owner should see.
In addition to the extensive ethanol resources and information the HVA has put together for their EthaNO campaign, the HVA has produced a video in partnership with Ed Syrocki.

Add your voice to the thousands who are saying “NO!” to E-15.

Timeline

2011
Dec.- The United States has ended a 30-year tax subsidy for corn-based ethanol that cost taxpayers $6 billion annually, and ended a tariff on imported Brazilian ethanol.
In a late Christmas present to historic vehicle enthusiasts, congress wrapped up its 2011 season without extending the federal subsidy for ethanol and “biofuel blenders.” Trade groups do not expect this to mean the end of ethanol, according to The Detroit News report, but it is clearly a big win for taxpayers and anyone who knows what kind of damage ethanol and other biofuels can do to the engines of older vehicles.

A big thanks goes out to all those who signed the Historic Vehicle Association’s EthaNo! petition, spread the word, and took the time to contact their local representatives. This just goes to show that, when historic vehicle owners rally together, we can make a difference and our efforts can pay off.

Jan. 3, Historic Vehicle Association files formal comments on EPA’s approval of the partial E15 waiver.

2010
November, Historic Vehicle Association releases E15 petition to raise awareness of the harmful impacts of mid-level ethanol blends on ANY vehicle manufactured before 2007.
Historic Vehicle Association begins “Etha-No” campaign, bringing the facts about E15 into the public spotlight

2009
April 21st, Growth Energy and 54 other ethanol producers submitted a partial waiver application to increase the blend limit from 10% to 15%- a 50% increase.

2008
Surge in individual states mandating use of 10% ethanol (E10) gasoline. As of March 2008, U.S. ethanol production capacity was at 7.2 billion gallons, with an additional 6.2 billion gallons of capacity under construction.
