New Lead is the problem.
Lower demand and having to have completely separate equipment, lines, trucks, etc.

But if they'd STOP this IDIOTIC adding of Ethanol to auto gas, I could use auto gas in my airplane. Aside from having Trump as President, if there's a dumber damned idea than using ethanol for fuel I can't imagine what it is. I see it for EXACTLY what it is: YAN way for Republicans to jam money up farmers arses so that the Republican Party can remain relevant. For NO ONE making under 500K/year except a farmer is dumb enough to vote Republican.

You use the equivalent of roughly 1.1 gallons of fossil fuel to create 1 gallon of ethanol that has total lower energy than the 1.1 gallons of fossil fuel you used to create the ethanol. But, you do increase demand for corn. And corn farmers are Trump's base.

New Not cheap, but ethanol free gasoline is available around here in SC.
It's about the same price as premium.

But, I agree that using what would have been food for making subsidized fuel is stupid. Tell that to the folks in Iowa.
