    "Hi everyone,
    I'm considering upgrading to a 45' Viking of late 80's early 90's vintage and from what I've seen, they have fiberglass fuel tanks. I've heard rumors about ethenol being added to diesel fuel in the future! Does anyone know if this is really coming? Thanks in advance!!"

    "Paul, here is some info from the US dept of Energy. You can be assured, if someone can make a buck at it, it will hit the market sooner than later...

    E-Diesel is a fuel that uses additives in order to allow blending of ethanol with diesel. It includes ethanol blends of 7.7% to 15% and up to 5% special additives that prevent the ethanol and diesel from separating at very low temperatures or if water contamination occurs.

    E-Diesel is currently an experimental fuel and is being developed by many companies, who can receive federal ethanol tax credit when blending ethanol with diesel."

    A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)
