I know this is an old post, but it's raining and I can't plant. So thought I'd share my thoughts on this.Why is it that when I fill up with diesel, fuel pumps at the station always seem to caked with diesel fuel on the pump handles and residual diesel around the pump?
Here in NJ they can put up to 14.99% ethanol without advertising it, but you bet your dollar it has 14.99% at least and only 14.99% if your lucky, as its cheaper, than pure gasoline so many times it's a higher %Just thought of this, last week I was getting the little honda engines serviced for the seed tender and the sprayer tender trailer. I drained out last years gas from the tanks. Wiped my hands and continued servicing. 10 minutes later I looked at my hand and it was all white from the gas, cleaning the skin oil off, just like parts cleaning solvent.
Don't remember that 20, 30 or 40 years ago, rebuilding carburetors. Maybe my skin has changed.
On my bulk gasoline storage tanks, I only have unleaded delivered. So there shouldn't be ethanol in the gasoline.
It is labeled someplace on the pump in small letters. But if its any percentage over 14.99% it must be labeled gasohol, under 14.99% it's still called gasoline. Believe me, I have found up to 40% in some winter months, and know right away by the lower fuel mileage. Can give some cars some drivability headaches and wreck older cars injectors and fuel pump, but I can't say I have seen any of that, but have experienced drivability complaints and lower fuel mileage complaints, No need ever to add dry gas here in NJ as all cars get a dose every fill up like it or not.Here in corn country, we have E10, E30 and E85. Along with just regular unleaded.
I believe what you've typed, I just can't believe it would be legal to not have it labeled.
