Dodging the Roadkill: The Ethanol Debate

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I recently posed the question on my Dodging the Roadkill Facebook page about what grade of fuel do most bikers use?  I have always pumped “high grade” octane.  Knowing that most pumps have up to 10% Ethanol. 

I also learned that a lot of bikers don’t use high grade gas.  They use regular gas, but also put additives in their tank. 

The American Motorcycle Association has voiced it’s opposition to any increase in the amount of Ethanol in gas as higher blends of this corn based product could damage motorcycles, ATV’s and smaller engines.

The Government disagrees.  Or maybe they don’t care.

NASA says Wet Winters May Not Dampen Small Wildfires

 

Written by Carol Rasmussen
NASA’s Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – NASA scientists conducting research on the connection between fuel moisture and fires have uncovered a paradox: a wet winter corresponds to more small wildfires in the following fire season, not fewer, as is commonly assumed. Large fires behave more “logically,” with fewer large fires after a wet winter and more after a dry one.

“This is the most surprising result from our study, because we would expect small fires to follow suit with larger fires,” said Daniel Jensen, a Ph.D. candidate at UCLA who worked on the project under the direction of scientist J.T. Reager of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. When there is ample moisture for plant growth, Jensen pointed out, “It seems that the buildup of fuel content alone causes there to be more fires — but not necessarily more devastating fires.”
