German motorists are refusing to buy gasoline that is made out of food. The gas is a blend called E10 that uses high biofuel content.
Some 52 percent of motorists avoiding the new fuel blend said they feared engine damage, the survey said.Others said they doubted its environmental benefit and also had concerns about burning food as fuel…
According to Germany’s oil lobby firm MWV, only 17% of motorists are buying the fuel and German politicians are blaming the companies for poor reception. Politicians are saying that the fuel that most people do not want “must stay on sale despite the hostile reaction”.
Guess German motorists just have to stick to their wallets.
