Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Is the Tide Turning Against Ethanol-Blended Fuels?

On the surface, it appears as though E15 ethanol-blended fuel, commonly thought to cause substantial harm to all vehicles built before 2001, is here to stay. The U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear arguments against the Environmental Protection Agency's approval of E15 this summer, and legislative attempts to suspend the sale of E15 have stalled in the U.S. Congress. Yet the EPA now seems on the verge of backing off its push to add more ethanol into the American fuel supply, and a recent Associated Press report has scrutinized the ethanol mandates for causing more harm than good.

Much of the recent discussion on ethanol has centered around the so-called E10 blend wall, essentially the inability of U.S. oil refiners to add any more ethanol to the U.S. fuel supply.

The EPA is not a governing body. They have no business "approving" anything, and should be dismantled and replaced with a relatively small agency that goes after gross polluters. Period.
