15% Ethanol update:
- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed that there is insufficient test data to permit E15 to be used in model-year '00 and older light-duty motor vehicles. Our concern is that ethanol increases water formation, which creates formic acid that corrodes metals, plastics and rubber.
There was a request from the ethanol industry to raise the ethanol content in gasoline from 10% to 15%. We should all oppose E15 until scientific findings prove that it will not harm older cars as a result of corrosion or other chemical incompatibilities.
Most collector-car issues are handled at the state and local levels. From titling and registration to emissions inspection and maintenance and equipment standards, we're subject to decisions made by state and local officials. Let's work together to protect our cars from unnecessary, unfair or well-intentioned but poorly-written laws and regulations. By speaking out on issues that concern the automotive hobby, contacting our representatives and working constructively with government officials, we have the power to protect our activity and keep it safe for future generations of Crosley hobbyists and enthusiasts.
