#2 E15 fuel can potentially damage engines made prior to 2000
Article neglects to mention that some manufacturers of 2012 models (e.g. Hyundai) FORBID use of anything more alcoholic than E10.

#3 Some of us know it from computer programming, but one of the sure signs that You're Doing It Wrong(tm) is your rule sets become more and more complicated, with all sorts of tweaks and exceptions and special cases. At some point, the only sane thing to do is pitch the whole mess and start over.

#4 I'll agree to this if every time I fill up, an EPA official has to drink 4 gallons of the same fuel. And they have to do there, at the gas station in front of us.
Why no, that's not a sparkler in my hand, it's a combustion fueled signalling device.

#6 What do you do about fueling your lawnmower or other gasoline powered tools, chainsaws, weedeaters, generators? I guess they will be mandating that 1, 2, 2.5 gal containers are gone. How much do fuel tanks on motorcycles hold? It seems that some of them don't hold 4 gallons. EPA needs to be cut back seriously; they have become a radical left organization.

I got some 10 litre cans of gas from Canada here in the trunk. No ethanol. Only $25 a can.

#8 @#6, did that today myself, had the same thought
Likely, you just get your gallon and get charged for 4.
