Great News:

"The EPA will also reportedly require gas stations provide dedicated hoses for E10 fuel for motorcycles and other vehicles not approved for E15 use."

Not to be a pesimist, but I would've liked E0 dedicated pump for those who hate ethanol.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I'm a little confused. You are saying that the blended fuel has the higher octane, right?

Alcohol has less energy density than petrol, but it does raise the octane (resistance to misfire) value of blended fuels.
