Recently, I wrote a post about the EPA raising the allowed level of ethanol in gasoline to 15% for regular cars and what we can do about it (you can read the original post here). After getting a lot of feedback from many people about the post and many have suggested starting a petition to try and make ethanol free gasoline available in all areas.
Because of the danger of ethanol gasoline on older vehicles (in fact Porsche recommends against even 10% ethanol in cars made before 1996) and with the new 15% ethanol gasoline causing many manufactures to void warranties if the new 15% ethanol gasoline is used (some are cars as new as 2011), we must band together to keep our cars running. In the comments and on some forums that have been talking about this original post many people recommended that various automotive enthusiasts from clubs such as the Porsche Club of America, Porsche Owner’s Club, Corvette Club of America, Ferrari Club of America and many other clubs band together to stop this.
The goal is to get 1 million signatures that will be used to try and get the government to listen to our concerns about gasoline that contains ethanol. Perhaps together we can make it possible to get ethanol free gasoline no matter where we live. Also, please pass this petition on to any car enthusiast that you know as it will help us get to 1 million signatures.
Also, I’ve been contacted from a few people wanting to re-print portions or all of these ethanol related posts on local club newsletters (PCA and other clubs as well) or websites. You are more than welcome to re-print these ethanol related posts providing that credit is given to this website as the original source (no need to contact me with permission for this).
