You might double check on that; I don't believe Illinois is a mandatory E10 state (yet).

Very few states are, for the fact that E10 has severe compatibility issues with emergency generators, 2-cycle engines, aircraft engines, etc.

It does strike me as funny that the branches of government that are pushing for mandatory E10 in all states, are the same tree-hugging hippy asshats who push for higher MPG vehicles, not realizing that ethanol blends reduce mileage typically anywhere from %20-40... My guess is those same people have corn in their pockets they can't get rid of...

Eggs & Bacon. A day's work for a chicken, a lifetime commitment for a pig.

A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.
