That Dakota Access pipeline looks like an alternative to the long delayed Sandpiper project by the same group intended to attach to existing or updated pipelines in Superior, WI. http://www.enbridge.com/SandpiperProject.aspx Note that this is all part of the same Enbridge system I mentioned earlier that includes segments from Alberta, CA through Minnesota to Superior and then on to Illinois. It appears the Dakota Access project was designed to bypass Minnesota, probably due to the delays they've experienced trying to get any of their approvals passed in that state.

The newer engines are designed to tolerate the 10% ethanol blend, but can't go any higher. But, I found a source of non-ethanol laced gasoline and my Mazda3 recorded a 3mpg increase when I used it. That's a fact.

concerning ethanol reply: this will never show up in the mainstream media - go to this link: The auto industry, though, says E-15 -- as the blend is known -- corrodes pumps, fuel lines and injectors. And manufacturers say they won't cover damages caused by the higher blend. The American Automobile Association agrees. "Ninety-five percent of today's cars are not suited for E-15 based on what people who make those cars say," said AAA CEO Robert Darbelnet.

A BIG CONGRATS on reaching 2,900 consecutive days, can you believe, every day for 7 years and 345 days! Wow, another milestone has arrived! : ) You have worked too hard to give up now, it's not time to retire yet! Using the GasBuddy app really helps GasBuddies to post everyday, which is the smart way to keep up with GasBuddy nowadays! Sill less than 20% of GB do not use the mobile app every day, missing out on more than 8,000 extra points each week! Your Consecutive Day Rank is: 204 of the top 4,000 GBs! WARNING! Every day GBs lose their consecutive days, many with big numbers, the #1 reason, oops, I just forgot! :( It's sad to see many of my buddies start all over after many years of hard work! Hang onto those hard earned consecutive days as I track your progress to the next milestone at 3,000 days! Thanks buddy for your 10+ years of dedication here in GasBuddyLand! Have a nice week! Ron

A BIG CONGRATS on your achievement reaching 4M! Again, truly magnificent! Sorry, again no new car! Please contact the mods for a new car, maybe someday we all will get upgrades for a new top car)! :( Many GBs retire before they get to the 4M mark, many GBs only show up occasionally, and those GBs move much slower up to that next milestone! More than 6 of 9 GBs use the GasBuddy app! Many GBs still do not use the GasBuddy mobile app every day, missing out on more than 8k extra points each week, or more than 200k every 6 months! Using the GasBuddy mobile app every day helps GBs keep their consecutive days almost indefinitely! Only a few, 121 GBs have reached that 5M milestone, so far! Keep going, don't stop now, it's not time to retire yet! It's nice seeing you come back each day as I track your progress to that 4.5M milestone and beyond! Thanks buddy for your 10+ years of dedication here in GasBuddyLand! Have a nice week! Ron
