Gas, Ethanol Mix Won't Burn Hole in Wallets

From The Detroit News: "Like lots of motorists, Chuck Nye thought he had no choice but to grin and bear it as rising gas prices made filling up his minivan a painful experience. But then he heard a radio ad promoting E85 -- a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline -- that sells for an average of about 45 cents per gallon less than regular unleaded. Inside his fuel door was a sticker saying Nye had a flexible fuel vehicle, which can burn the homegrown alternative." Will this help the hybrids gain acceptance, as you can now fill up with your oil-fuel mixture almost anywhere?

  • Just shut the fuck up already about hybrids needing a mixture of oil & gas. It does not run that way, the only thing that does is 2 stroke engine which has no oil to lube it's internal parts. Therefore a mixture of oil & gas is required so it does not overheat and sieze. Grow a brain you fuckin idiot.

  • The goober believes ethanol is oil.

    Hey, monkey boy, empty the oil out of your car and fill replace the oil with ethanol.

    Please get back to us with the results.
