The problem with "corn" is that is takes land and water resources that are really at a premium.

I love E10 gas, or more, my car loves it. At sea level I used to avoid E10 because it would cause pinging and my mileage to go down. Up here at 5800ft my car runs beautifully on the stuff. I guess it depends on where you live.
You mean like stop eating cows? All the soy they have to grow to feed cows...
Cows make more pollution than cars anyway. I say we stop eating them.
I stopped eating them... I get wierd issues... aches, pains, stomach cramps, strangely, angus, and bison burgers don't seem to do the same. I wanna know what's going on with lamb here though, I was reading the ontario agriculture site, apparently we've got damn near as many sheep as people up here now and it's been doubling every couple of years.... but I still can't afford lamb at $10 a pound, I dunno where it's all going.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
Consider the property of alcohol absorbing water. In an open container, alcohol will suck water right out of the air. Remember how you can pour a little ethonal into the gas tank to keep the condensed water from freezing the gas line in winter? The reason it works so well is alcohol also mixes with gasoline very well. So? Well, if the alcohol sucks a lot of water and then is mixed into the gas, BTU goes down. Alcohol has a lower BTU than gas, so any loss due to water only subtracts from the effeciency of E-whatever. Save the corn for food. If we have to use ethonal, then get it from other biomass. Lots of biomass around, use it instead.
