Default E15

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.

ConocoPhillips also sells it, but have not confirmed it.

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.
