"Splash blending can put too much ethanol in your fuel tank"

www.kansascity.com | 10/25/2008 | Splash blending can put too much ethanol in your fuel tank

Apparently a method of blending ethanol with straight gasoline can be inaccurate, resulting in a lot more than the E10 blend should be. Interesting read, especially if you live in a state that requires E10.
