They are a powerful bunch ... and it looks like they are going to get their way with that ridiculous farm bill, too.

Isn't switchgrass a more efficient way to make ethanol?

I'm not exactly looking forward to more ethanol. I currently use a 10-15% blend and it's dropped my fuel economy at least 4-5%
Corn producers or ethanol producers, to whom are you referring?

In what way is that farm bill ridiculous?

Switchgrass grows well in a tropical climate, not so tall up north.

Fuel economy in what units? Btu's per mile? $ per mile?
