The US state dept did research that says that for every unit of energy put into producting ethanol, 1.3 units are returned. Take that with a gallon of salt of course. Gasoline returns around 1 to 1, some studies say slightly less.



However since we're subsidizing our farmers anyway and they throw away excess crops when the market won't bear the prices, we might as well ferment the stuff and toast to big government.

It would be funnier if one ever actually saw an HD in a junkyard.

No, it's simple. Hybrids are going to save us all. Don't argue. Even the fact that diesel's use less fuel than any other ic engine is unimportant. Kneel to the hybrid.

Those statistics have to be wrong actually. Ethanol is absolutely more expensive to make than gas.

Who would throw away that kind of bling?

And the lead for the giant batteries is reaped from faery gloss. When they're disposed of, unicorns eat them and crap rainbows.

Yo! Hommie needs a new chrome grille.

No. Since ethanol has been determined by IMPORTANT PEOPLE to be an acceptable alternative fuel it must be as viable as gasoline. QED.



And they can quote you the statistics to prove it.
