    2003 Magna AWD 40% Ethanol 60% Petrol "Ethanol Rocks, Petrol if for losers"

    On 40% ethanol the first cold (5 deg.) start will stall when I put it straight into drive after starting.

    If I give it a couple of rev's for a few sec then no problems.

    After restarting no problems, Cant notice any difference in the pollution in the car. 5% and over seems to make a big difference.

    Have given up running the gen on 50% Ethanol 50% Petrol as it still stinks not as bad as 100% petrol, but still stinks. So now just use 100% Ethanol.

    Cant wait until I do a oil change to see the diff.

    We need to start protesting, We need the have the right to make our own fuel and should be proud of it.

    I Grow my food for me why not my car?

    Lets make a change. Power to the people that is clean power not coal petrol nuke but clean and green.

    Chris.

    Chris,
    Congratulations on the decision to use Ethanol in your Spark Ignition vehicle.

    How do you propose we protest?

    Regards,
