From my own hypermiling experience I have lost 6mpg with the introduction of E-10. It doesn't surprise me that this fuel source developed in the this way is more harmful than gasoline to the enviroment.

We have over 100 years invested in the internal combustion engine, it is about time we change our thinking. I wish they would invest more time and money into developing a different engine instead of trying to refuel a design that was never that efficient to begin with.
