No! See we could make our own electricity, to charge the jeeps, from a generator that runs just fine on corn gas... Problem solved!

Tang87 Lol we don't have that kind of freedom with gas. It's like every radio station playing some Howard stern, so you're still gonna hear him unless you listen to a cd or mp3 player....but that is equivalent to making your own gas....and I can't do that
12-23-2010 09:30 AM
Ibuildembig Yeah, um kinda hard when your state mandates it in everything but premium.
12-23-2010 09:25 AM
nick50471 If you don't like ethanol don't buy it. I personally don't like Howard Stern. I learned to turn the station and wow, no more Howard Stern for me.

rogertc1 CRAP. Supposed you would rather give the middle east your money. There is no corn shortage. Being in the heartland, we can produce more corn than you can even eat. Gasohol is not the reason all the prices are going up.




You must be from Canada.

444 We have that ethanol mixed dog water for gasoline here too. Basically all it does is raise the price of gas and drop my fuel mileage. It's only a matter of time before this world has more people on it than we can feed with the land we have, and we're using farmland to grow crops for fuel. That can only do one thing to the cost of food and it's not going to lower it.

rogertc1 I use Ethonol living in Iowa on my 95 Wrangler and my 8 other autos. I have no problems what so ever. Do not need to add Heat and we are using 10% of home grown fuel..
12-22-2010 05:44 PM
ISUSteve I live in Iowa, the start of the ethanol craze. The regular and premium gas here does not have ethanol. The mid-grade is E10.

It does loose some pep in the jeep, but not in my other cars. Gas mileage is about the same with either, about 16mpg.

It does burn cleaner though. Its also about 20 cents cheaper than anything else.
12-22-2010 12:22 PM
Thuone All grade have Ethanol in them where I am in Florida found one mom and pop place you can still get real gas. Us with older Jeeps need to be careful the rubbers and plastics in the fuel system may not meet ethanol standards, this can cause deterioration.

Ibuildembig My ole mans escalade gets 4-6 mpg better with gas gotten anywhere but Missouri
12-21-2010 11:44 AM
Jeep_Geek We still have regular unleaded here and two sets of premiums 92 and 93. I still use 10% ethanol though, I have never had a problem with it. I get 14mpg no matter what i put in the tank or what type of driving city/highway. Just my 2cents
12-21-2010 11:33 AM
Ibuildembig Yeah actually that's exactly what I thought of when you said premium and regular were the same price. They have been doing that for years, the difference is, they don't have "premium" like the others. I believe to be called that, it has to be above 91 octane.
12-21-2010 11:25 AM
hannahuffster Do you guys have casey's gas stations there in fruitland? All their gas grades have corn in them and are the same price every day. They run like water in my jeep. I dont think turning them in would help much - since they post this on signs right next to the roads about 30 ft in the air and on their pumps...

But to the point of the thread - My 93 2.5 wont hardly even run on corn gas at all (IE: casey's gas station). I can be at about a 1/4 tank and stop in there for gas and get another 1/4 tank and it even has trouble staying running at stop lights sometimes. Hard to start in winter mornings, and almost no power...
Hmmmm maybe you should turn um in then.,,,here's the statute.
