We don't spend or reinvest our profits but we need an influx of quick cash.

Oh that's easy, just go out and look around at the equipment and find something wrong with it.

What do you mean?

Anything, peeling paint, maybe some rust, blow it out of proportion so that you can temporarily shut off supply to drive up prices. Then you will get the extra influx of money you need and then just play off the situatiun like it isn't as bad as you thought so there's no need to shut off supply and then turn it back on.

You think that will work?

Sure. The consumer can't prove anything or do anything about it plus you got the extra cash you needed.

Man, I really should give you a raise.

Industrial strength alcohol is by far the best route to go.

Gas is self evident for its problems.

Ethanol isn't equitable either, gallon for gallon it consumes massive amounts of freshwater per day to keep the place up.

Gas, considerably more fresh water available, ethanol, massive consuption of water for the comparison of natural resource usage as a supplement to gas or as fuel itself.

Alcohol, negligible, pollution, compared to gas, negligible, price, some force keeps industrial distilleries suppressed thus taking fuel grade alcohol off the market.

Besides, it would put the oil companies out of business. Can't be having any of that now.

making acohol is easy..simple.it cost around 50 cents per gallon..a still that will make 50 gallon a day cost 16 hundred dollars..or you can build your own for far less..but we have a fedral law that force you to sell acohol at pump price of fuel..this law is what keeps acohol off market..not technology...most race cars allready run acohol..and any car that burns gas will..
