Fiscal cliff, E15 gasoline, and the decline of longevity on our engines.

Interesting read that might concern us at some point with the push of E15 being made.

It's been mentioned here by a member that Brazilian market 335i's have the same fuel system as our N.A. cars. Can anyone confirm that?

Currently the minimum ethanol blend in Brazil is E18.

For those of us afflicted with 91 AKI California Reformulated Gasoline as our only readily available fuel source in the P.R.C., ethanol is the only cost-effective octane booster available.
