37. Won't help with boat owners in Florida.

Even E10 can wreck a boats fuel system. Hatred of ethanol fuel cuts across all partisan lines among boaters in Florida. E15 would be a disaster.

The upside? With all our boats is is easy and getting easier to find non ethanol fuel here. I burn it in my truck. While more expensive per gallon, the increase I get in mileage almost balances it out. Not quite. But at least my truck runs well.

There is a station in North Florida south of Tallahassee that sells 93 octane ethanol free. People with imported cars that require high octane drive 25 miles away to fill up there.

Totally off subject. I am a big supporter of electric cars and plan on getting one in the future. At least a hybrid. Are there any plans to make Hybrid trucks than can pull over 5000lbs? We are gonna need them.
