You know, it could be I'm a very sane person.
That is, if the definition of sane is to have a long fuse, be slow to react, stable, not easily alarmed, and so on.
I've been hearing about ethyl alcohol being added to gasoline, for some decades now. I remember a bad reaction a previous carburetted Accord of ours had to Mohawk "green" gas in the 1980's.
In the last year or so Chevron pumps have started sporting stickers saying "May contain up to 10% ethanol". Except for their most expensive, highest octane, which has a sticker saying "contains no ethanol". I still keep pumping the regular...
But maybe I'm starting to lose my ethanol sanity. I've been reading up a very little bit. Getting a glimmer that maybe there's long term detriment to engines, from a steady diet of ethanol laced gas.
Also interesting that ethanol mixes are legislated, that gas companies have
to add certain amounts. They have to be less than a certain max percent, but apparently they can shuffle the amounts added to various octanes, and typically they add more to the lower octanes. Shell and Chevron, for two, exclude ethanol from their highest octanes.
Considering the higher octanes are much more expensive, and apparently not needed for the majority of lower compression engines, frustrating.
