Fuels, good information and questions

First has any manufatuure give a statement such as this one from Mercury,

"E-85 fuels must not be used in any Mercury engines and could seriously damage current Mercury products."

I had read and heard a few tales of
E-85 causing major issues in motorcycles fuel systems very expensive repairs on modern bikes. i have seen E-85 in the pumps as close to us as SC off I-85,

here is the full article which is very informative for all of us as well. it is a good read for those who do not have a good understand of fuels
