Jay Leno's latest article in Autoweek (www.autoweek.com/article/car-life/jay-leno-hates-ethanol) outlines his hatred for ethanol and is titled, Jay Leno Hates Ethanol. I am not sure if it is the 3rd person headline to the article, or just how different this month's article reads from his ones of the past, but something sure smells fishy. I personally have never been a fan of Jay, just never could connect with his humor. I was a big fan of Johnny Carson and now enjoy Jimmy Fallon. I also didn't really care for what he did to Conan either, but I digress. History says that something is fishy here too. It takes just a few seconds on Google to find several examples of Jay promoting his own Corvette that he had converted to run on E85. In fact, on YouTube, you can spot him at events like SEMA talking about it and wearing an E85 logo (here is one example: youtube.com/watch?v=1ccK9wIOfH0). He also featured in an article for Popular Mechanics and raved about the benefits of using E85 (popularmechanics.com/cars/a3213/42617). His goal, "transfer the soul of a race car into a powerful sports car that runs a fuel other than gasoline." Seems like a good message. Guess times have changed, or maybe we should follow the money? While no one has claimed a connection, nor do I have one to present, the anti-ethanol crowd was ready to promote Jay's latest stance and ignore the one of the past. Maybe too ready. I will let all of you form your own opinion, but if you are a supporter of E85, I would remind Jay and @lenosgarage on Twitter. If you want to go one step further, I suggest reaching out to AutoWeek: firstname.lastname@example.org. The RFA will be making a statement, and we have at least three auto experts making statements and are writing back to Jay directly. I will share those as they are available and I hope you will help us turn up the heat. Robert
