    According to the commercials/sellers, everyone has this problem, and every problem is the result of it.

    Might also be due to being way past our prime!

    Now it's potentially ruining our cars (temporarily):

    Only (really) high performance engines and those that already have issues will notice.

    Half of my Escorts spend six months sitting unused, while we are in our other residence. So far I have never had issue with gas that is six months old. My cars usually start up promptly after sitting that long.

    The higher vapor pressure of the winter gas should have no effect on the running of fuel injected cars.

    I guess it could overpower the evaporative emissions system and release fumes into the air, but that doesn't seem very likely.

    I guess people who live in areas that have emissions inspections and have a code set because of the fuel are just SOL or is the state going to give them a free pass?

    Good point about the emissions testing.

    It would be good to print out that sheet when going in for testing.

    I'm guessing that emissions testing might be closed in a lot of places. Around here you can do self service on 2011 or newer vehicles:

    Yeah we been absolutely bending you over for the last 30 years, but due to unusual circumstances we're going to return a minor percentage on what you donated to us these last couple of months... "when this is all over"... which might be toward the end of the year... which by then you'll be on your next policy... which might include yet another price increase. Now please thank us.
