Don't use it in an existing motorcycle engine. As for the "standard", well we have to use what we can get. Even the engines made to use E85 get poor mileage and many have expressed other problems. Not sure what all of them are or if it is design or fuel.
The EPA is hell bent on destroying the environment. Corn is about the poorest thing to make fuel quality ethanol from, and the most costly.
Sugar cane and switch-grass are the best, but we don't have a good supply of that. Good ideas on paper, but many of the things the US is using to make ethanol requires more energy to produce the product produces. Not all that good a long term program.
Lots of "feel good" ideas going around and making certain folks wealthy, but that is the real jewel of the program, not fuel independence.
It is all an emotional terror program. Emotions don't feed the hungry or run a nation.
Some people go their whole life wondering if they made a difference, Marines don't have that problem.~ Ronald Reagan
