E-85

OK, the station is taking advantage of people with the jacked E-85 price, at only 15% gasoline, why is the Ethonol up 20 cents from when I last bought some, trying to get us since gas went up 30 cents. He has a great racket going on, only station in TN showing that it carries E-85, and that is straight from the distribution site on line. There needs to be more stations, since the FFV vehicles are available, how do they expect to do a sales pitch on one whem there is only one station located in middle TN? I'm tired of driving out of my way to get it, and disgusted that it rises WITH the price of regular gasoline!

Ethanol price went up too with the phase out of MTBE...

I got some earlier this month for $2.39, what's with this jump, that's not the reason.

That is the reason. Ethanol is being used as the new oxygenate instead of MTBE, creating more of a demand for ethanol, thus driving up the price.

thats the way I understand it, ethanol demand increased, but they don't have the refining capacity to do it...supply and demand= we get screwed again

I really wonder the price in other states, what can I do to get more stations to carry it, rather than this 1.

Make your own ethanol. Driving out of your way to get fuel seems to be counter productive. The E85 should cost about 70% of what regular gas costs to make it even mileage wise. You can also calculate your mileage difference if you have pure tanks of the liquids since a few people get better than the theoretical energy balance mileage. -This is also a great reason for dual tanks!

Looking to put another rear tank in my f-150, was dual tank until prevous idiot removed it, when I'm out that way, I stop in for ethonol, take my gas cans to bring some home for my other vehicles. I live in gov housing, no way to make my own.

Get after the Gov of TN to reopen the old Tennehol plant (spelling) near South Pittsburg that went **** up about 15 or so years ago because of the lack of demand for the alchohol.

I think any and all politicians that make one cent from gasoline during the past 3 years and subsequent years should have to go to Leavenworth swinging a 9-pound hammer for 25 years for subversion of the American people. The profits should be used to develop alternative fuels such as E-85, but not electric.

Sorry, he's impossible to get to do anything but his own agenda, he's been on a mission to destroy healthcare here, I can't describe how he's hurt the disabled, because he claims lack of funds, no way he'd put money in that program.

I love the electric arguement, since many cities burn coal or other non renewable resources to produce electricity, the extra load to charge the cars burns up that much more, not helping now is it.
I found 4 ethonol sites in TN, but only one is open to the public, one is in Oak Ridge, apparantly gov vehicles use it, Nashville Elec Co has one, I can't recall the other closed to the public.
I hay see about getting the news and paper involved if I can get an idea on vehicles available at the car lots here, make a better arguement with the governor if I can show a greater need.

That Tennehol plant could produce a lot of ethanol if it were running. It looks like a city from Star Wars when driving by it on I-24.
