Sunday letters: Ethanol gasoline damages cars

April 27, 2014 

I wish to thank Congress for legislating federal ethanol mandates that require gasoline to contain 10 percent ethanol.

The corn lobby is happy.

My mechanic is happy.

It just cost $740.60 to remove and replace my car’s throttle actuator control assembly, add fuel conditioner and clean the air induction system.

My mechanic stated that this problem could have been avoided if there wasn’t any ethanol in the gasoline.
