The Ethanol Papers - Paperturn manuscript - Flipbook - Page 249
As for your reference to Mercury Marine's research, the boating industry does
not concur. They have done they're own research on ethanol and other alternatives. They have found a better less damaging alternative.
Reply from MARC:
I'm not a mechanic. While that's not a problem for me, it should be for you. If I,
as a layman, know more than you about how internal combustion engines work,
your customers should be running for the hills.
Mercury conducted significant research that far, far, far overshadows anything
you've done. They presented the information in a public online webinar in 2011
and they stand by the results today. You say that the boating industry does not
concur. That's incorrect; Mercury Marine is a big part of the industry and their
results have been published in multiple boating publications, which no other
serious player in the industry has challenged.
Incidentally, my personal knowledge comes from more than 4 decades of working on my own vehicles with internal combustion engines. I've owned classic
and antique cars, new cars, and an antique ELCO boat. Then I combine my
hands-on experience with extensive research and mix it together with truth and

Please enlighten me on how you test for ethanol content in fuels using a test
tube water and fuel. Then explain how it us not hygroscopic. While your at it
explain why gasoline free of ethanol can sit in a glass vessel for hours and not
have water form across the bottom while a vessel filled with 10% ethanol/gasoline quickly forms a water layer. Then explain why metal parts corrode in ethanol based fuels and not in 100% gasoline. Then explain how efficient it is while
at the same time produces less power per volume.
