Long flex fuel post

Below is a list of flex-fuel compatible cars sent by my husband Gene. We have a couple of gas stations in our area that sell it. It's currently about $2.46/gallon, but it's priced differently depending on where you live. Enjoy! P.S. I have a new post just below it.

You know, in theory this is cool. In practice, I don't like the idea of our food supply competing with our energy supply, and the ethanol you buy in the U.S. is protected by abusive tariffs--there's something like a 50 cents a gallon tariff imposed on Brazilian ethanol. In practice that means U.S. ethanol producers and the federal government are forcing you to subsidize inefficient producers. And ethanol corrodes the pipeline distribution system, imposing more costs for alternate delivery.

The idea that an acre of land used for ethanol production takes away an acre of land for food production is a myth. Currently corn used in ethanol production was never intended for the dinner table - at least not yours or ours. It was feed for livestock, and the cows aren't out of luck either. There are different processing techniques, but they all produce various feed by-products - corn oil, gluten meal, gluten feed, dried grain solubles, etc. Which all add up to inexpensive and tasty feed for livestock. And this doesn't include the many other (higher yield) crops and processes that exist or are on the horizon - switch grass, orange peels!, cellulosic ehtanol, sugar caine, sorghum, beets, algae...the list goes on and on and on. Some estimates are that as little as 1000 square miles of desert land could be used to supply all of the current US requirements for diesel fuel if high-lipid (oily) algae is grown. That's 1/3 of the area of the Los Alamos test range where the first atomic bomb was tested.

As for ethanol being corrosive, the automobile industry eliminated metals, plastics, rubbers, and other materials that are affected by ethanol years ago - ethanol has been a "blending agent" for decades. I don't have any information on whether the pipeline infrastructure has kept up, but if not, the cost of upgrading will be outweighed by the potential profit of the coming bio-fuel industry. If current pipline owners won't do the upgrade, I'm sure there will be a host of entrepreneurs lined up to build the first bio-fuel pipelines.
