If you had to choose between the two, would you rather have regular unleaded available at the pump or something containing ethanol?

  1. Regular unleaded
  2. E-anything
  3. Don't care

Yes, raj, I'm unfamiliar with Fox crawlers.

I've seen ABC crawlers on the early morning news. I like those.

Apparently, you are the Fox expert here. So when do I get to say "Faux" expert? Now?

raj, since I don't listen to Fox, your reference falls rather flat with me.

Instead of blaming a network, own your impoliteness. Be brave.

Is polite language you left-wing people have trouble with, raj?

mules is absolutely right about avoiding ethanol. It's murder on small engines, like lawn mowers and chainsaws.

Natural Gas cars are available but cost 2 to 5 thousand more, so there is no gain. The conversion will cost the same, plus you'll need fueling stations.

You won't get far without fueling stations.

An electric car is a good idea for short distance driving. You won't be buying any gas, but electric cars come at a cost to build and gasoline would still be used to produce electric cars, so you won't escape the use of petroleum products.

Studebaker's first car was an electric car. Oil was abundant back in 1901, so gas won the battle. In the future, electricity will be more plentiful than gasoline, so electric cars might return one day for urban transportation.

The gasoline engine offers much more power, so it will never go away as long as there is oil and there is a million barrels of oil leaving North Dakota every day; there is plenty of oil at the present time, so there is no need to worry.

Burn regular, lead-free for peak operation of your ICE. Avoid ethanol.

Hahha yeah you have to convert your vehicle to burn it also, back in the 70's many people were burning propane in their crew vehicles. I don't know what converting fuel injected vehicles entails but should be possible. They are talking NG now so that is a little different and dirtier than propane. I know some of the larger big oil companies are very busy coming up with better ways to capture all the energy/money that comes out of the ground. The biggest problem with Y grade gas straight of the ground is transporting it to a facility to liquify it. One of the huge oil companies is working on having gas and oil pipelines to/from each well pad instead of adding even more trucks to the roads. Big problems need big fixes sometimes.

" all they need to do is switch pumps". another "easy" solution that requires all lot of money to do it. and then the complaining from libs would start because it wasn't free. There are refueling stations Mark - buy a LG car and save yourself some money.
