All Auto Owners Can Choose Premium E30

Joanna Schroeder

Back in September I brought you a story about Orrie Swayze, an active ethanol advocate, who wants all drivers to use E30 in their cars. At the time, there was a special order in front of the South Dakota Farmers Union and this has since passed in a resolution meeting and Swayze believes the resolution will unanimously pass at their December 10, 2015 meeting. The special order declares that all 14,000 members pledge to use premium E30 in all their non-flex fuel autos and other standard engines.

Watertown, South Dakota-based Glacial Lakes Energy is publicly promoting the use of E30 with a full-page newspaper ad and Swayze is calling on other ethanol plants to tear down the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “Illegal Ethanol Lie” that holds such power over the ethanol industry and built the E10 blend wall that has cost the industry billions.

Swayze has penned an opinion piece about E30 and it is below.

All Auto Owners Can Choose Premium E30

ShatterOrrie Swayzeing EPA’s biggest illegal lie: “Its illegal to fuel non-flex fuel vehicles with lower cost, more power ethanol’s premium blend E30.”  Even though for manufacturing efficiencies both flex and non-flex fuel vehicles have basically the same engines, fuel, and emissions systems:  And the clean air act’s memorandum 1a, now amended to include persons, or the law protects consumers from EPA’s zealous, unreasonable enforcement of  clean air act’s tampering provisions.  Plus thousands of standard auto owners daily fueling with premium E30 obviously have the clean air act’s memorandum 1a defined “reasonable basis for knowing”: Knowing they are not tampering or illegally degrading emissions, engines, or emission systems and Magnuson-Moss warranty act protects them from unreasonable warranty denials.

Importantly, they nearly eliminate benzene and associated known human carcinogenic emissions because ethanol doesn’t  produce these emissions and replaces gasoline’s octane that does. Fueling with E30 means auto engines/systems are not saturated with these poisons when parked in attached garages.  Poisons, nearly identical to cigarette smoke, that would then move into homes attacking especially your youngest, most vulnerable children. Also, rather than funding foreign international oil corporations, fueling with E30 supports our local economy potentially tripling our Midwest ethanol industry and associated billions of economic activity: How can all that be illegal?

Because these standard auto owner’s often report more power, better mileage and importantly the check engine light is rarely triggered until blends over E40, if at all:  Proves non-flex fuel vehicles’ computers easily adjust systems to take advantage of: Department of Energy’s defined “Super Premium” E30’s volatility neutral, lower cost, non-benzene producing 93 octane, air cooling turbo charging’s more power and complete combustion assuring cleaner engines that prolong engine life.

Rarely in both flex and non-flex fuel autos, abrupt changes in ethanol content will trigger a check engine light.
