I'm old enough to remember the "energy crisis" of the early 70's. After things stabilized (albiet higher pump prices) Citgo offered a product called Gasahol. 10% ethanol blended into gasoline. They had a picture of an ear of corn on the pumps. Cost about 2 cents more per gal. at a time when gasoline was selling about 50 cents / gal. The experiment lasted about a year when after poor sales they pulled it off the market. The point I'm trying to make is back then I had a choice. Read the report about Archer Daniels Mcneal to get a little history of how the stuff got into our fuel supply. If you think the stuff is so great you haven't done your homework.
