Are these guys for real? All that money invested in Ethanol, the President, and his entourage went down state in huge SUVs in 2008, swore to God their vehicles used Ethanol, even though an old farmer walked 1/2 a block to ask a Distributor of those SUVs about that very thing, and was told no those SUVs could not use
ethanol. Now with the photo ops over we are taking the loss for all that research in stride. Americans have to be nuts to put up with this crap.

You have to wonder why the fuel without ethanol cost forty to fifty cents higher since it is less costly to produce.
