    That's a very interesting article. Here in Southern California, we've been using E10 gas for several years with mixed results. I know that my fuel mileage has dropped at least 2 mpg in the Studebakers and even my 2010 Silverado with the 5.3 engine loses fuel mileage when running that stuff. The ethanol is corrosive to fuel system components and even damages neoprene fuel hose in a short time. We had hot weather the past few days and you can smell the ethanol boiling out of the carburetors in my Studebakers after the engines have been run for a while which then makes the engines hard to start.
