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.
