EPA approves more ethanol use

• AP

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Friday approved the use of 15 percent blend ethanol for automobiles and light trucks of model year 2001 and newer.

The decision expands on a ruling in October that allowed the increase in blend of ethanol with unleaded gasoline to rise from ten percent to 15 percent.

The ethanol industry and corn growers hailed the long-awaited announcement.

The auto repair shops will love it too. Plus your mileage will drop 15%.  So more fill ups per year... petroleum companies like that.  Help pay for Cheney's heart transplant.
