This is like the governments farm bill to only use corn to make alcohol.
Which caused corn to be sold for alcohol and not for food because the
farmers got more money for it.  The results were that people around the
world go hungry so we can drive our cars and get less fuel mileage than if
we were to use 100% gasoline. So there is no gain in the fuel supply at all.
It just takes more to go the same distance. Another result is that a lot of
animal feed is based on corn which is why the price of chicken and eggs went
up. Because the price of feed went up. Yet the fields of sugar beets and
other crops with a high sugar content cannot be used for fuel, because of
the tax incentives is only for corn.

That's not the only problem. Corn requires more
pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers
and water than any similar crop. Large swathes of
the Missippi river and the Gulf of Mexico are
grossly polluted by these additives. On top of all
that, most of the growing is done by Ag companies
and the government even subsidizes all of it!

Add to that the toxic high fructose corn syrup -
also subsidized!

What a system!!!

So I guess adding %10 Ethanol to gasoline really does not produce
cleaner air. All that processing going into making ethanol offsets the
cleaner burn when mixed with gasoline.
