Nantucket might want to listen in on Hawaii's phone calls. The state of Hawaii recently set up a telephone hotline for drivers to call if they are having trouble with ethanol in the state's fuel supply. Since the beginning of April, at least 85 percent of all gasoline sold in Hawaii has been E10, and, according to the Honolulu Advertiser, "some drivers have complained the new blend is decreasing fuel efficiency or causing cars to run rough."

The state doesn't think ethanol is causing any major problems, but wants to know about them if it does begin to affect drivers. Oil companies in the state have not yet reported many complaints. Hawaii needs to import its ethanol, just as it imports gasoline.
