Monsanto chemical co. (the fertilizer people) has a lot to do with the % of ethanol in fuel, well there lobbyist anyway. Farmers are bitching about trade agreements with china now, but they don't grow food anymore they grow products to ship to other countries and to put into gasoline.

You are spot on. Ethanol is a consumer rip off all the way around.

Norton fiberglass tanks are notorious for reacting to ethanol, (I have 4!), get soft and worst part is; Norton tank has two mounting studs underneath on front, right above the ignition coils!!! Leaks right on the sparky bits!!! Or, they will leak on bottom seam or by fuel taps. Either way, fuel blows back onto your pants making you a nice tiki torch for your next right wing lunatic Nazi torchlight parade!
