gummy and it can harden into a varnish. The easiest and least expensive solvent to use to clean engines and parts is to use some type of alcohol. So, once
again, this proves that ethanol used in ethanol-gasoline blends is not the cause
of full-sized engine problems, it is the solution to many internal combustion engine problems. The typical cause of the problems blamed on ethanol are actually gasoline and aromatics.
Oops, there one other thing to consider. Alcohol can be used to clean sensitive,
expensive electronics, too. You can use isopropyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol.
Among the items the rubbing alcohol can be used on are video and audio heads
on cameras and tape machines. Typically, you would use a swab or a q-tip
dipped in alcohol and then rub the alcohol over the item requiring cleaning. The
alcohol dries quickly and cleanly, and leaves no sticky residue. Let me repeat
that, the alcohol dries quickly and cleanly, and leaves no sticky residue.
How do the slimebags that work for API get away with this? How do media
whores hired by the oil industry get away with repeating information that are
ridiculous downright lies? Why are there any small engine mechanics that don't
understand this - they should all be at the forefront to argue for ethanol, not
against ethanol. How can you trust a mechanic that can't or won't diagnose a
simple problem correctly?
In the broadest terms possible it could be said that all fuels used in any type of
engine will contribute to the engine breaking down. It could be a spark-induced
internal combustion engine, a compression-ignited internal combustion engine,
a steam engine, a water or wind turbine, or an electric motor; they all break
down, and the fuel that supplies the power helps to cause it. Engines have moving parts; moving parts wear down. Internal combustion engines suffer from
thousands of small explosions per minute.
When the anti-ethanol people talk about a fuel damaging an engine they make
it seem as if only ethanol causes the wear and tear. They make it seem as if
the gasoline somehow cushions the explosions or coats the engine components
to prevent deposits from forming. This is a lie. This lie is told to keep us subservient to the oil industry and the terrorist countries that are the key suppliers.
There is no fuel used in an internal combustion engine that is worse for the
