Congress is in the process of allowing oil companies to increase the ethanol content up to 15% from the present 10%. they put in the gas. How will this effect Bu's . I have a 2007 Bu ride .

It will effect 'Bu's greatly in the fact that nobody will be able to buy them. Ethanol is subsidized with your taxes because it's not profitable enough to stand on its own. If we want more ethanol, we'll need more taxpayer money.

Sorry, just had to throw in that comment.

Other than that, there should be no problem with running it.

check out the thread I started in the Tech section. Doesn't look like ethanol is good at all for our boats and looks like additives may do nothing to help either.

I started having vapor lock problems last year. I attribute it to the 10% ethanol I had to start using last year. Had 400 hours no problems until last year then it started. Gas was the only thing that changed. I hate Ethanol! Lower gas mileage to boot.

When I have trouble starting/running with E-10 I use adose of K100 K 100 Fuel Treatment. This works every time. Even on weedeaters and other hard to pull start engines. It actually attaches to the water molecule with a carbon compound allowing the water to ignite and burn. The MC dealer uses it and recommends it on all boats that have sat for long periods or are having starting /running problems. Cheap way to find out if it is the fuel rather than something more costly like carb, EFI,filters or other components.

Some more fuel for thought. Do we need to be doing this.

Subject: Take Your Blood Pressure Before and After You Read This One....

This is for real !

The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota; western South Dakota; and extreme eastern Montana ..... check THIS out:

The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels.. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable.... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.

'When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.' says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.

'This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years.' reports, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada. For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken'######### reserves.... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 41 years straight.

2. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO!

U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World!

Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?

They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:

- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

- 18-times as much oil as Iraq

- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait

- 22-times as much oil as Iran

- 500-times as much oil as Yemen

- and it's all right here in the Western United States .

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy....WHY?

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That'###### than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about it .... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:

3. Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you want to complain about gas prices .. because by doing NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.


Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.

By the way...this is all true.. Check it out at the link below!!!

fuel lines can not take more than 10% alchole, when they are subjected to more than that they internally breakdown, causing fuel lines into your engine fuel system
