As far as being a alternative fuel, this is BS. What I've read about it is it takes a gallon of fuel to make a gallon of ethanol. This is Bull...t, all it's doing is subsidizing the farmers. The crap attracts water, so if you car sets the winter, it could coagulate into a glob of crap waiting for your fuel pump or injectors to suck it up.
Corn is 1 to 1 to produce. Sugarcane is 8 to 1, Brazil uses it thru cane.
I have written my senator,Carl Levin, and have gotten no response about this issue. But every other issue I have written to him about he has responded.
As ya'll can see I get fired up about this issue! Ethanol right now is a waste of money, and the price of food keeps going up. Ethanol is part of the problem, not a solution! Write your senators and help stop this crap!!!!
PAC (Political Action Group) aka political lobby = legalized bribery (trying to make this free from politics).
