Does Reformulated Gas Actually Help?

Does it really help the environment? Here's the Gummint's answer:

"I'm telling everyone to cool their heels and wait until we have the data so we know what we're talking about," Machiele, of the EPA's fuel programs center, said. "A lot has changed, or potentially has changed, and we need to look at it."

You want the straight answer? Don't go to the Gummint.

The Public Investigator Team asked the Environmental Protection Agency exactly how the gas benefits air quality today.

The answer: "That's the data we don't know now," said Paul Machiele, director of the EPA's Fuels Center in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Better-equipped cars coupled with cleaner conventional fuel are making reformulated gas less relevant. Some Wisconsin officials are calling for its riddance.

It's only money, folks.
