The La-La-Land of EPA Bureaucrats

The Other Planet's inhabitants dictate, and you will bow before Zod.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will require all consumers to buy at least four gallons of gasoline from certain gas pumps after the new E15 ethanol-gasoline blend is introduced into the market.

The EPA revealed the requirement to the American Motorcyclist Association in a letter dated Aug. 1, responding to AMA concerns that E15 — a gasoline formulation that contains up to 15 percent ethanol by volume — could be put in motorcycle and ATV gas tanks inadvertently when consumers use blender pumps.

Huh?  REQUIRE a minimum of 4 gallons?  Won't that.....ahhh....

...Another problem with the new EPA policy, ['cycle ass'n guy] Allard said, is that not all motorcycle and ATV gas tanks hold four or more gallons.

“Not only do we find it unacceptable for the EPA to mandate that everyone — including our members — buy minimum amounts of gas, but the EPA answer simply won’t work because of the sizes of many motorcycle and ATV gas tanks and the fact that off-highway riders take containers of gas with them on their trips, and most times those containers are much smaller than four gallons,” Allard said.

Like, for example, the fuel tank you fill up for your lawnmower or snowblower.

But EPA'crats don't cut their lawns, nor worry about clearing their driveways.

Not on THEIR planet.
