    Are you pro or con about ethanol? Do you live in a state with a mandatory ethanol blending law?

    My car says in the owner's manual to only have ethanol free (E0) gasoline but I live in a state with E85. Ethanol increases corn and soy bean prices - why are more and more states doing this?

    We have a choice at the petrol bowser in Australia. Ethanol is not mandatory but it is cheaper. Our Mazda 3 is able to take ethanol blends but until September last year I preferred the best and most expensive super fuel that was available.  I was under the impression that the more expensive fuel was good for the car.  We had a starting problem with the engine.  Since February last year it sometimes took three turns of the ignition to get our 3 year old car to start and the mechanic could not find a problem.   Then I filled up with E10.  My car has not missed a beat since I started the vehicle at the servo....  Perhaps it was just coincidence but I prefer to think that maybe it was karma for doing the right thing for the environment.
