I have always been careful to use regular gasoline in my tractors (at lease until I have the gas lines and carburators completely rebuilt) as I have read that the alcohol in E10 and E15 will attack gaskets and lines not made to handle it.

Two guys in North East Nebraska decided to make some extra money; one owned several gas stations and another was a distributor of gasoline. They decided to put E15 in the stations tanks for regular and make 10 cents a gallon more. Well they got caught. Our Attorney General is going after them for consumer fraud.

But not only were they stealing 10 cents a gallon from their costumers but those in North East Nebraska with old tractors and cars and trucks were put E15 into those vehicles when we thought we were putting in regular gas. Fortunately I did not buy gas for my tractors at those stations.

You should have your state inspectors tests your stations when they test the pumps for accuracy.

If a colored dye is required for off the road diesel maybe there should be a dye put in E10 and E15 and E85 to get the tax break.
