How indeed??

I spend some time hanging out at a Porsche Cayman website. One Cayman owner was low on fuel and the only thing that he could find was 15% ethanol. His car is suffering now . . . and Porsche is saying, "Sorry, our engines aren't built for 15% ethanol."

Big corn growers are going to ruin us.
