So, you can basically just jam corn in the tank? Is there a tuner setting for that?

LOL,me neither.
This is a bit dramatic,i debated whether to post it or not.
You have to think of who's financing this
Everytime the auto industry is forced into accepting something,it's always death and doom for the consumer,at least that's the way the auto industry tries to portray it.
I hope most guys that do watch this keep in mind these basic facts.

Been running E10 for years in everything from lawnmowers and weedwackers to my auto's,never yet had to change a dried out hose or carb seal,and remember the death and doom the auto industry claimed would happen to everybodies fuel systems using 10% ethanol based fuel.
The small engine industry is crying big time too,and i've yet to see much basis to their claims either,in my opinion the sun does more harm to a small engines fuel system then ethanol ever did.
Every hose i've changed was due to sun damage on it's exterior,not ethanol damage from the interior of the hose

Basically the scare tactics,the automotive industry is famous for using

This one is really interesting: Two of the eight engines running on E15 suffered lower performance, misfiring, reduced fuel economy, and damaged valves and valve seats. A third showed tailpipe emissions that increased above the legal limit. The study was conducted by FEV, a consulting firm that has previously worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It was initiated by the Coordinating Research Council, which studies the interactions among petroleum products and automotive equipment and is funded by the American Petroleum Institute and eight automakers.

Yep.

"E" has led to a HUGE increase in corn planting, which is not good for the land or conservation of resources. Worse yet it has taken corn that used to be used for other things--like food and livestock feed--and sent it to be processed for ethanol. That has caused the price of everything made from corn--and meat we consume that was fed corn--to rise.

It really needs to go the other way, with less corn ethanol production--NOT more--for the good of the country.
